Kitty Kitty

I had to run a few errands today, and since I am still learning my way around the area I took the long way home just for fun. Out of the corner of my eye I saw the local SPCA, with a sign that said petting zoo. I had my grandson with me and I knew this was a great way to show him some farm animals. I have been showing him books and telling him how the duck goes quack and the sheep says bah for awhile now, and he is just beginning to get the idea. I knew seeing the real thing would be fun for both of us so we paid the small fee they were asking and went in. As soon as I opened the gate I was asking myself why is it that I never seem to have my camera with me when I want it. I would have loved to have a few pictures of the chickens, ducks, turkeys, and peacocks. Several of the goats were expecting little ones in the spring and like most petting zoos this one offered a machine where you can buy food for a quarter. I think the animals must be smarter than the humans because the minute I opened my purse for the change I had three of four new best friends waiting for the feed to drop. I feed them a few handfuls and moved on. In the outer cages we saw a bald eagle, a black panther, a mountain lion, and a kangaroo. They even had a display with sea lions in it. Of course my grandson called everything a kitty since that is one of the few words he can say. I thought it was pretty impressive to be part of the ASPCA, and not a real zoo, especially for a little tot.
Back inside the main building we visited with the dogs and cats. My heart went out to all of them and I wanted to bring them home with me. There were several beautiful cats. I plan on going back again soon with the camera.
