I work at a local animal shelter and we also happen to have a zoo in the back of our building. So today one of the "zoo keepers" let me pet some of the animals. I got to pet Tiger Lily the tiger! It was so awesome! Who can say that they got the opportunity to even do something like that?! Anyway, I also petted the black leopard. They were both very loving. The coolest part was when the tiger made what seemed to be like purring sounds... it's hard to describe, but it was her happy sounds, so it was cute. She also licked my hands raw with her sand paper tounge. I have to admit that I was a little bit nervous, but it ended up being a cool experience.
