Here, kitty, kitty, kitty!

My husband and I finally visited the Zoobic Safari inside the Subic Bay Freeport Zone. The 25-hectare park has many attractions, but the one it touts the most is the area where tigers and lions are allowed to roam freely, and visitors ride through in a customized jeep protected by steel grills. For an additional Php200 (less than US$5), you can buy raw chicken which a handler will feed to the big cats through the grills.

Oh boy! I'd be afraid that grill would not be strong enough to stop one of those wee kitties if he or she decided that he or she were still hungry! :)

Oh no I would be admiring them from a very safe distance :)

I love domestic cat, even ferals and strays, but these.....I'm scared.

Hi. I just found, and joined, your blog. My hope is that sometime in the future I will be able to visit the Philippines. LOTS of homework first. If you don't mind the question: where would it be cheapest to stay/rent? (3 months or more )
I won't bother you with more. I noticed the amount of followers! Yikes! Thank you

I'm glad we still have a few tigers and lions around. Interesting concept at the zoo.
