Non Wine Related
And since it's directly related to one of my other interests (felines, large and small), thought I'd do a quick plug for EFBC/FCC (Exotic Feline Breeding Compound/Feline Conservation Center). It's located in Rosamond, California, is open to the public 6 days a week (closed Wednesdays) and very cool. I've volunteered there for over six years and recommend it highly to anyone with an interest in conservation/exotic felines. www.cathouse-fcc.org. Check it out!
The ocelot in the photo is Rico. He's one of our public relations cats (or was, until he hit puberty and decided he didn't want to sit still to have his photo taken) and was hand-raised towards this goal. He likes to suck on arms, which is kinda cool if you don't mind lots of slimy drool and ocelot hickeys that last a week.
