Cougar. Mountain Lion. Tigre'. Whatever You Call Her, You're Going To Like This Zoo.

Cougar.  Mountain Lion.  Tigre'.

Cougar.  Mountain Lion.  Tigre'.  The Indians I grew up with in Suriname, South America never saw one of these North American cats.  The one they feared was the Jaguar.  They called it "Kai Kwi."

Don't come to Tucson without visiting the Arizona - Sonora Desert Museum.  It's one of the world's ten best zoos.  This magnificent cat isn't cooped up in a 20 x 20 cage with a concrete floor.  She's the beneficiary of some of the most forward thinking zookeepers on the planet.

My Darlin' and I live six miles from the "Desert Museum."  Most of that six miles consists of Tucson Mountain Park (surrounding our little neighborhood of Tucson Estates II) and Saguaro National Park West.

Talk about blessed!  Come visit, and let us share it with you.  If you like it here, I know some great REALTORS, and we can talk about a mortgage...  I'm good at that.

Mike, That is a gorgeous picture and while I've been to beautiful Arizona a few times, I haven't been to Tucson.  It will be a stop on my next trip out there!

Mike.

The late Ed Lowe sold industrial absorbent clays. He was also a cat lover. One days instead of refiling the cat's sand box with sand be used his industrial absorbent clay. That is how he developed "Kitty Litter" now you know "the rest of the story!" For several years he did his own ads, a big man with a grey beard and lots of well cared for cats.

Ed was a client of mine he's the subject of two of my stories, but never mentioned by name.

That is a truly stunning creature. I'm glad that she's living in a natural habitat and not a cage which is what I saw as a child when my parents took me o the zoo. Really great photo Mike, thanks for sharing it with us.

Thanks for the suggestions Mike.  They all sound great (except I don't golf).  Enough to keep us busy for more than one trip.  I've been pretty narrow focused in my past trips to Tucson, so this gives me some options for distraction....  My Sweetie and I would love to have dinner with you and your Darlin'...I'll be in touch!

I love the desert museum - in fact I'll be taking my mother there in a few weeks time on her first visit to Arizona. Here is a pic I took earlier in the year of the at the same enclosure:
