The poll has closed, and a winner has been declared! It looks like big ears aren’t enough to overcome the floof.
This is it, folks. This is the big one. After four weeks of brutal polling and extremely heart-felt campaigning, we have reached the Championship Round of our O-Deck January Madness!
Welcome back, folks, to the O-Deck January Madness! This round is the first round in which our feline and canine teams are facing each other directly. It’s possible that either the felids or the canids will be eliminated from the brackets entirely. The future depends on your votes!
Things are heating up, people! Lots of drama in the last round, with the much campaigned-for Tiger losing to the Jaguar. Apparently stripes are not “in” this season, sorry Drillpress. The Pallas Cat remains in it to win it, defeating the admittedly adorable Sand Cat. The Arctic Fox remains a juggernaut, steamrolling…
Apparently terms like “Sweet Sixteen” and “Elite Eight” refer to the number of “teams” in a round, and not the number of match-ups. I learned something new last week! So, today is the Real For Sure This Time Sweet Sixteen of The O-Deck January Animal Madness. Just roll with it.
Wow, Round 2 of our January Madness was brutal! The Arctic Fox nearly swept the Kit Fox, but the Kit Fox managed to eke out 3 votes anyway. I’m sad to see the Jaguarundi go so soon, but in fairness it was up against the Ocelot. Jinxe will be happy to know that the Pallas Cat handily beat the Caracal, though it’s a…
January Madness is off to an exciting start! The closest match-up of the first round was definitely the Ethiopian Wolf vs. the Maned Wolf, but the Maned Wolf squeaked by and will be part of the Sweet Sixteen round! A couple of rounds ended with surprising results - the Iberian Lynx easily beat the Cougar and there was…
Madness isn’t limited to March and December! I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while, so I’ll be shamelessly copying UkuleleDan’s approach to determining that Die Hard is the best Christmas movie. Except that instead of Christmas movies, wild species of canids and felids will be going paw-to-paw to see…
Through cuteness, of course.
Varna, Bulgaria is currently home to a cat who managed to turn itself green. Apparently this has happened before, so whatever has turned this feline such a striking color likely isn't poisonous (or at least not fatally so), and it isn't thought to be the work of cruel pranksters.
Levi would like to wish everyone a good morning, a happy #Caturday, and a "Hey girl.".
This is an idea that I've had for a spell now. Since I have a finally have a Saturday where I have a ton of time to get to the random things on my list, ya'll are getting it now.
On Sunday, I finished my Caturday series, writing about all of the extant non-domestic felid species in the world. Here’s a handy post that contains links to all of them.
Wow. I'm not sure how to say this, but today's Caturday entry finishes things up for my series on extant felid species. I started this more structured approach to learning and writing about these cats at the end of July 2013, and I've managed to make it an almost weekly series since then. This isn't the end of…
I know everyone's focused on giant lizards today, but that's no excuse to neglect Caturday!
It's a day late, but I promise you all that it's worth it!The Snow Leopard (Panther uncia) is a large wildcat that can be found in the mountains of Central and South Asia. Specifically, they live in Kunlun and Tannu-Ola Mountains (Siberia), Altai and Sayan Mountains (Russia), Tian Shan Mountains (Tajikistan,…
This is another one of my favorites, everyone!
Prepare for the adorableness, people.
Hmph. Bunnies. Who needs bunnies for Easter when you can have kitties?
