beautiful shot This WAS me at my Granny's trying to catch a wild tabby cat underneath an old hen house at Uncle Billy's. I got a sticker stuck in my forehead while trying to squeeze further and further underneath to reach it. I never could because they were so wild. But MAN, that sticker was IMBEDDED in my forehead!!! I like to never got it out. I'm sure I just kept playing and finally dug at it. I was a tough old kid just like this girl.
The toyger is a breed of cat, the result of breeding domestic shorthaired tabbies to make them resemble a “toy tiger”, as its striped coat is reminiscent of the tiger’s. The breed’s creator, Judy Sudgen, has stated that the breed was developed in order to inspire people to care about the conservation of tigers in the wild.
