I love cats – both big and small.  This week’s montage is dedicated to these gorgeous creatures.  See if you can identify 14 out of the 37 cat species in the world.

It has been four years since we visited the Oakland Zoo. I have always liked that zoo but now there are some even bigger improvements. They have added a whole lot of acreage and built a cable car that goes up the mountain to an event center with a delicious new cafe and extraordinary views of San Francisco. If you are in the area – go visit.

We visited the Bronx Zoo about a month ago and were delighted to find so many babies. Included in these wonderful baby sightings were adorable bison, porcupine, tawny frogmouth, Inca tern, gaur, four Pere David fawns, baboon, ring-tailed lemur and the always charming young gorillas. It was a terrific visit. Go visit while they are still young and active.

It was a beautiful day with a sensational host. EVP Paul Grayson could not have been more hospitable, entertaining and gracious when we visited the Indianapolis Zoo on our Mini-Zoocation in early May. It is a big zoo with something for everyone. Meeting walrus’, rhinos, orangutans and dolphins up-close and personal were unforgettable experiences. Seeing their scarlet macaws free fly overhead throughout the day was also amazing. Thanks to Paul and an outstanding crew for this visit.

May’s mini-zoocation continued with a visit to the delightful Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo in Ft Wayne, Indiana. The zoo is a perfect size with a varied and interesting collection of animals. The site lines are terrific and there is something around each bend on the road to surprises. A big shout out to Ann Barker and Director Jim Anderson for making our visit so memorable.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers, caregivers, nurturers, pamperers, surrogates and loving coddlers out there. Our mother, Lillian Wolfe, is long gone, but her advice, warnings and general ‘Lili-isms’ live on in our daily lives.  She taught us to laugh at life, to think, to question authority, to march, to protest – to fight the good fight. She also gave  us our moral compass – one glance from Lillian told us instantly whether our behavior was acceptable or not – and I got a lot of glances.  My sister Terry and I remember many childhood events differently but we both agree that our mother was a  pistol. Here’s to Lillian Wolfe – she formed and informed what we are today.

Winter gave us one last gasp of cold, wind and snow this week. The animals at the Central Park Zoo did not mind at all. Come visit before it all melts away.
