I'm a TIGER! Not a kitty!! by starbucksgirl26
Clear

Zoya is just over 3 weeks old and becoming more steady on her legs as she walks around every day. Though she is small enough to curl up and cuddle in my lap now, in just 3 months she will be active and trying to get into everything! I hope I am lucky enough to still be in her life when she is older.

Amur tiger (Panthera tigris altaica), one of 5 remaining subspecies of tiger. The Amur tiger (formally known as Siberian) has the longest pelage (coat) of any of the other subspecies due to the cold climate that they live in. All tigers have four canines, and they only ever turn ‘man-hunter’ when they are old or sick and more than two of the canines are broken. The Amur tigers are the largest of all tigers, weighing in at as much as 700 pounds-though 400-600 is more common.

    Thank you for all the comments! Patricia, it was pure luck that landed me in the position to hold her-it’s always sad when the mother chooses not to care for her baby, but at the same time it gives everyone a wonderful opportunity to be around such an adorable baby!!
