Tiger cub!

Britta went to a friend's house the other night and then called to see if she could please bring home an adorable baby kitten she had fallen love with. I said no. No. NO. NOOOOO.

The next day she went up to the Onalaska (Wisconsin) mall where there was a display of exotic animals from a shelter that rescues former exotic pets that become too much for their owners and are surrendered. She was not sure what organization it was, though when I mentioned Tippi Hendren's name, she thought that sounded familiar. Anyway, she donated $25 and received the privilege of actually playing with and cuddling a week-old tiger cub for a few minutes!

She tried to talk them into letting her take Sasha home, but to no avail.

The other arms in the pictures are Britta's friend Melissa and the trainer/handler.
