Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Taste of Things to Come

On Sunday my cousin who lives in Kent told me she'd seen on the local news that the huge, gazillion acre animal park near her has two new tiger cubs. I had a little look on their website, and found that two little girls were born on June 27th. Of course, a visit was absolutely imperative, so I drove my friend down there today.

It was not a very pleasant day, but the rain was supposed to clear up. It sort of did, but the day remained grey. There was no sign of the tigers when we arrived, so we went on a lengthy visit of this massive, VERY hilly park with a view to returning for the 4pm tiger talk.

The dholes are Asian hunting dogs. They look a bit like big foxes. These seemed quite calm.

Samira is a disabled lion. She was born with a neurological problem caused by an abnormality in her spine, but because she was bitten by her father, it was years before they found out the real cause of her disability. As a cub she had sessions in a doggy therapy pool. There were no signs to say she had been moved up next to the snow leopard enclosure, so because she was rolling over in ecstacy rather than walking with her wobbly gait, we didn't even realise at first it was her.

Now for the reason for our visit: the tiger babies. Mum has plenty of teats, but they still fell over each other to get a good feed. Considering they were just 2 months old today, they are already big, sturdy, brave, feisty girls. Dad was in a mood, yet they still braved approaching him. He gave mum a growl and stalked off, only returning to turn tail on the audience and try to spray them. Fortunately he was pretty easy to read, and they managed to duck out of the way in time.

This little girl was half suckling, half asleep (complete with feet off the ground). Her sister is just to the left also either feeding or sleeping.
I have some movie footage of the cubs playing, and also of some margays and the Scottish wild cat female, but it's late and I'm shattered, so I'll leave that for tomorrow.

LOCI Long Weekend

We have hours and hours of Vincent to look forward to this holiday weekend, UK Vixens. Hallmark is showing episodes of the later seasons from 6pm till midnight on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, then repeating some of them from midnight to 3am. On Monday there are also 2 episodes from 1-3pm. They are not all Goren/Eames, but more than half are.

Why go out?

Folie a Million

Because "deux" is just not enough fans who are mad for Vincent.

Hair today...

...gone tomorrow...

...then hair again. Not to mention beard.

Any Suggestions?

This bitch was caught on a family's own CCTV putting their kittie in a bin. Since the video went nationwide (worldwide actually) she's been traced, and faces prosecution.

Any suggestions for a suitable punishment? Personally I would put her in a bin for 15 hours.

Short Back and Sides

Hands up all those who would cut Bobby's hair this short, or stand by and watch someone else do so?
It's sacrilege!

Niece? What Niece?

I was hoping that one day we'd discover how Bobby came to have a niece when his only brother just had a son. Where did this "family" he was visiting actually come from? We need to know.

We never will.
