Where's The Fifth Tiger?

Anthony and I went to Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden at the Mirage yesterday to see the tiger cubs. I'd heard there were four and I really wanted to see them. We spent most of our time with our faces glued to the glass around the cubs area. It's a square room with glass walls on two sides. The other two sides are in the gift shop and there are several windows. A man sits in there with them, playing with them and breaking up fights. I guess he's training them but I don't know what they are being trained for as S & R no longer perform. As far as I'm concerned, there is little in this world as cute as a tiger cub. Three girls and a boy, the boy is a golden tiger, two white tigers without much stripes and a white striped one. Everyone was envious of the man in there with them and wanted his job. They may look like little babies but they sound like real tigers when they growl.

Today I searched the web for mor info on the tigers and everything I found, including the Secret Gardens site, says there are five cubs. But I was unable to find out where the fifth one is. I sent an email to the Secret Garden but who knows if they'll respond...(EDIT The day after I posted this I did receive a response from the Secret Garden. They assured me that there are still five tigers but that they sometimes rotate them in to the nursery.)

By the way I'm not posting pics because Ant didn't remind me to take a camera. We might have to go back next week, fortunately he gets a discount on the entry.

This is my latest fun ring design, I call it The Polka Dot Ring. I love making these rings. While it incorporates my one and only stitch, Peyote, it doesn't take hours and hours to make like my other items. Expect to see this one in lots of colour combinations. Because it doesn't take long to make, I'll be offering them at a very reasonable (read: cheap) price on Etsy.


  1. Oh, I so wish you had pics. Tell the boyfriend you must go back to get Lois pics on the weekend.

    Love the ring. Very sweet and fun.


  2. Oh, I would have loved to have seen the babies! I'm glad you had a chance to visit them. Love your ring!

  3. how fun! We don't even have a zoo here on Maui. Imagine that..raising kids and not being able to take them to the zoo! It's just crazy.

    Beautiful ring...I love the clean lines and simplistic elegance of your designs!

  4. I can't remember if I tagged you in my comment I last left haven't okay'd my comment to go through I"m gonna just make another comment to say "you have been tagged" :)

    Go to my blog post here to see the instructions :)

  5. I also LOVE tigers--big cats of all kinds. Had my pic taken with a lion once, gorgeous animal! And as cubs, they are so cute. It's easy to see how someone would think that cub was a pet, then end up with a monster cat!
