If you couldn’t tell from all the photos I’ve posted of Rose on here, I like cats. And I’ve been particularly interested in what the actual differences between big cats and house cats are — aside from size, of course. There are surprisingly few differences.
Watching videos of big cats hunting, it’s eerie how silent and how quick they are. When Rose is hunting bugs or stalking the rabbits and squirrels outside our apartment through the window, it’s clear by her posture and demeanor that she’s all business.
You know I’ve got to like cheetahs because they can run at speeds around 60mph (which is faster than most Denver drivers are capable of driving, come to think of it). From our last November trip to the Denver Zoo, here are some of my photos of the cheetahs.
