I saw some beautiful lions and tigers and….cheetahs and cougars and…did you think I was going to say bears?? You did didn’t you? Silly, bears don’t say meow.

But I DID see me some biiiiiig kitties yesterday at the Sierra Cat Haven and had such a great time….however I would like to educate you readers on 1 very important thing you all must do before going there.

When checking your weather app make sure you check the weather where you’re going and not your city’s weather where it says it’ll be a beautiful 75 degrees which makes you wear shorts and a t-shirt. You will freeze because mountains + higher altitude = overcast and cold!

Are we clear on this? OK, good.

Here’s what made this trip extra awesome. The owner of the Cat Haven did our tour. What does that mean, you ask? All the cats love him and know his voice so ALL the cats came up to the fence line where the cats don’t care about the other guides. SCORE for us!

This little guy is 8 months old and has already been on tv shows.

This guy has been in movies, commercials and tv shows. If you’ve seen a cheetah on tv 9 times out of 10 it’s him.

He was playful and weird looking. No idea what he’s called.

Pretty sure these 2 are siblings. He was talking about them but I was so distracted from him saying there’s no such thing as a black panther just 5 minutes earlier that it threw me for a loop. No black panthers? It just happens to be the 1 animal I always thought were the coolest….My life is meaningless now…

Not sure if I like the stare down.

This was the COOLEST thing ever! We were 1 foot away from this guy. He definitely gave us a show.

There was a little kid to my right…

What big teeth you have.

Afterward we went to my friend’s parents mountain home. GORGEOUS!

Sitting on the deck, soaking in the sun that decided to shine, talking and watching the kids ride the pony…Could it get any better? nah..

I hope all you sweet readers have a wonderfully fabulous Easter, celebrating the risen, Jesus Christ! Pin It Now!

that sounds like such a great day Em. Those pics are beautiful.
I may be a little jealous that those cheetahs are so popular and have been on TV more times than I have (which is a total of none times).
