Welcome back to the In-Sync Exotics' Cat Tale Blog! We hope you had a wonderful New Year holiday!

This year we have some exciting stories to bring you, including our plans for the animals this year.  We will also present some great short stories from our volunteers as they lovingly care for our special cats and Nugget.  We start the new blog year with one such story from the "field."

Kelli, one of our volunteers submitted this humorous short story over the holiday weekend:

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all have been having a wonderful holiday!  I just wanted to share a few pictures and a little information with you. 
This year, like most families, money has been a little tight.  So for Christmas presents, I had to be a little creative, especially when it came to getting presents for my nieces Alexis and Azayle.  While shopping at a local department store, I found some stuffed animal lions.  They were really adorable and only $5 each so I decided it would be a great present from their cat crazy aunt.
Little Lion, Meet Jazz!
I also decided it might be cool to take pictures of their stuffed animal lions with REAL lions—to make it more interesting and hopefully get my nieces interested in

Little Lions, Meet Jynxie!

cats and wildlife education in general.  With Justin and Ricki's help, I was able to take some pictures (and a video seen below) of the lions with their real counter-parts.  I was AMAZED at how much all the lions liked the little stuffed animals. 
Geez, it might even be worth purchasing one for the purpose of getting the lions to move and go in and out of the playground! They followed me EVERYWHERE!  Such silly kitties!!

Little Lion, Meet Layla!

I'm not sure if this is blog worthy, but if you'd like me to write a story about it let me know and I'll be glad to.   
Have a wonderful New Year!!  See you all next year!
Kelli :)

This short story was definitely blog worthy, Kelli!  Thank you for the great impromptu short story.  Please, keep 'em coming!

Also, without further ado, we present Kelli's short video of the little lion encounter with one of our White Boys...

Again, we are thrilled you joined our Cat Tale's blog this year and we hope you'll join us on a regular basis.  Stay tuned for updates on Katy, Chance, and the rest of the In-Sync Exotics' family as we present fun and educational postings on our animals throughout the new year!
