Peaches the Ocelot & Bloggers Default


I have had a low-grade to near migraine headache for the last
two days and suspiciously, the near migraine part of it kicks in whenever I try to write. I'm trying, however, to be at least somewhat consistent with my blogging and other writing, so once again I'm using the classic default: Cute Animal Pictures!

This is Peaches, an ocelot that was the public relations ambassador for EFBC before she died of a stroke at the ripe old age of 20 years, 11 months. Approximately 105 in people years, btw. Peaches loved nothing more than to sit on someone's lap and suck on their thumb and fingers - some days she had to test out each and every digit in order to find just the right one to suit her taste at the moment. Getting your fingers back was the challenge; Peaches had the suction power of a Hoover. There was also the knowledge that she could bite through your finger like a chicken bone, if she was so inclined. Peaches got a lot of lap time.

    There's something subtly erotic about this post ...

    Well, I think if you'd experienced ocelot drool running down your hand and arm, along with the sound of Peaches going 'nnngggrrrowwwwwwerowwwwww', you might not think so...

    Actually Rico is the ocelot that leaves hickeys 'cause he likes to nurse on arms. Ocelots are a lot like kittens that have been weaned from their mothers too early...
