big cats

Last week I went to Dublin in Ireland for a few days and spent one of those days at the zoo. It was a lovely day and the big cats were taking the opportunity to have a sleep in the sunshine. This meant they stayed still long enough for me to take a few photos and to see, close up, just how beautiful they are.
They reminded me so much of Mabel when she's having a snooze.

Oh, and I couldn't resist this cheeky little guy!


  1. Miss Mabel, is your mum thinking of trading you in? We hope not sweetie!! Hope your mum had a good break.

  2. They are such magnificent animals and that little penguin is a doll!!!

  3. Dublin!!!!!!!!!! Our mama is off down memory lane, as she has spent many happy hours there and in the surrounding area.

    Great pictures and especially like that penguin cutie.


  4. Great photos, glad you had a fun trip!...Happy weekend, kisses to Mabel...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  5. I'd love to visit Ireland someday...They are great pictures.
