Earlier this year my family and I took a day-trip to the zoo. It’s not too far from where we live, about an hour drive, so we planned to have the whole day of zoo-fun.
My kids have reached the age where they finally can get into these things. They recognized the animals, were old enough to do the long walks without getting too terribly cranky, and we had a really great time.
My favorite exhibit my far was when we went to see the meerkats. They are adorable in size, have the cutest eyes and always look like they’re smiling. One awesome characteristic of the meerkats is they seem to enjoy standing on their hind legs with their arms gently placed in front of them. I feel in love immediately. I wanted to take the whole bunch home, but we all know that’s not possible.
My new-found love for the meerkat started to rival my love for cats. The more I thought about it though, the more I realized cats are just trying to be meerkats because they’re so much better.
I even found photo proof of my hypothesis:
