Did Someone Say Tiger King?
So, how exactly are we doing with no school, no photography gigs, no meetings or appointments, or getting together with friends, or leaving the house or grocery shopping? I think the pictures in this post say it all…
PSA: Absolutely no cats, dogs, or animals were hurt during this photoshoot. No husbands were killed or fed to tigers. Absolutely no tattoos, plural marriages, or injuries occurred. And no, nine-year-old Apollo has not watched Tiger King…he is just a great model who works cheap.
Thankfully, we’ve got Apollo Exotic, the Tiger King onhand to dispense great advice like, “We say no to drugs, because drugs make your teeth fall out and you get really ugly and don’t have any friends.” Wise words spoken by a kid who is still losing teeth…but no one has any friends these days because we can’t actually leave the house.
This Cool Kitten stopped by to smell the
roses dandelions. She also told me she did not kill her husband. Or feed him to any tigers. And besides, her cages are big and she doesn’t buy big cats…she just “rescues” them.
“Does it feel good to stand on my stage with 500-pound tigers and everybody envy you? Absolutely.” – Joe Exotic
Just a Cool Kitten with her big dog… “rescued” from a great family who knew Frodo would be a good companion to our children. If you want to come to see our Big Dog you can make an appointment and buy your ticket for $49. But we allow absolutely no interaction with our animals. Oh, and if you want to volunteer to help with our animals, you can do that too!

This guy definitely has a music career in his future…
“Tell all the hunters to lay down their guns
Tell ’em that the tiger needs a little bit of love
Let ’em run the jungle, let ’em roam their land
Then stand back and marvel, what a beautiful cat”
‘Cause I saw tiger
Now I understand
I saw tiger, and the tiger saw man
Clearly the face of a man who understands…
“You can see how they go from being so sweet to tearing your face off, just like that, and it’s amazing to have that range.” – Carole Baskin
I spotted Apollo Exotic behind bars. He looks like he’s doing okay. But he wants you all to know he is never going to recover from this financially…

My older kids don’t often want to participate in my photoshoots…so it was fun to have Jubilee play along for this one.
