    He is getting big, much bigger than Laurel. But that's okay, Hardy is supposed to be the bigger of the two.



    ETA You are correct Queenie.

    Excellent point!
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I meant kidding because it sounded like you were saying he wouldn't want to miss it. I'm guessing I misread it or it was sarcasm. In any case I wish him well. Most kitties dislike vet visits, especially non-routine ones. Poor baby.

    Unk that is funny about both Hardys being bigger!

    This is too cool. It's a cross between a zebra (dad) and a horse (mom).

    Meet Eclyse - the amazing zebra crossing
    Last updated at 00:57am on 28th June 2007

    It looks as if someone tried to give a zebra a respray. . . then ran out of white paint halfway through the job.

    But in reality there is no artificial colouring on display here. This amazing but natural coat belongs to Eclyse the zorse.

    Her father is a zebra, while her mother is a horse. And she's walking proof of how a child inherits genes from both parents.

    For while most zebra-horse crossbreeds sport stripes across their entire body, Eclyse only has two such patches, on its face and rear.

    The one-year-old zorse was the accidental product of a holiday romance when her mother, Eclipse, was taken from her German safari park home to a ranch in Italy for a brief spell.

    There she was able to roam freely with other horses and a number of zebras, including one called Ulysses who took a fancy to her.

    When Eclipse returned home, she surprised her keepers by giving birth to the baby zorse whose mixed markings betray her colourful parentage.

    The foal was promptly given a name that is in itself a hybrid, of her parents' names.

    Now she's become a major attraction at a safari park at Schloss Holte Stukenbrock, near the German border with Holland, where she has her own enclosure.

    Udo Richter, spokesman for the park, said, "You can tell she is a mix just by looking at her. But in temperament she can also exhibit characteristics from each parent.

    "She is usually relatively tame like a horse but occasionally shows the fiery temperament of a zebra, leaping around like one."

    Horses and zebras are often crossbred in Africa and are used as trekking animals on Mount Kenya.

    This is one confused critter! It is gorgeous, though. Leave it to those Italian males!!

    That's a cool looking animal; there's a "wildlife safari' thing here in GA that has several Zorses, but they are all the other type, all tan with black stripes. This one is much more striking!

    I didn't know about zorses (and apparently this spell checker doesn't, either. ) That sure is a beautiful, and bizarre-looking, creature.

    Posting this for no other reason than I love the Fin when he's in primal mode.

    Okay, I also love him when he's in purry, snuggly mode.
