I assumed the tigers would like the bench - I didn't realize they would all try to share it at the same time ! Bench number two will be finished this week.

We are often asked about the logistics of feeding a large group of tigers while traveling daily. The cats are fed a mixed diet of beef, chicken and organ meat. They also are intermittently given carcass meat. The ground beef comes from several suppliers across the country and often has to be shipped to a cold storage where we pick it up. I love the Chicago area where one company is close enough to deliver. Our freezer can hold up to 900 pounds of the ground beef.

All the girls have been loving their new bench except my two year old. She has always been nervous of platforms - seat training was a long process for her. Today, with some coaxing and some meat, she hopped up and learned there was no reason to be scared.
