The place for pets, and their owners

Chimp love (and I love this chimp)


P&C friend and contributor Sally sent me these AMAZING pictures (and I don’t usually use capital letters) about this chimp who became a surrogate mom to two baby white tigers. It seems this chimp has a history of helping raise abandoned animals, including leopard and lion cubs, at TIGERS (The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species) in South Carolina.

You can learn more about Anjana and see more pics here. But first, here’s some to whet your appetite. If you don’t smile at these, I can’t help ya 🙂



I love this one!





Here’s Anjana with the tiger cubs when they’re a little older (and bigger!). They still love their mama!

About this blog
For most animal lovers, pets are members of the family. They carry around pictures in their wallets and schedule vacations with pets in mind. This blog takes a look into the world of a pet owner: the good, the bad and the just plain obsessive.
