I just got off the phone with two of the people at the Detroit Zoo. I'd told the first that I probably had the strangest question she's had, but I wanted to know if their big cats, particularly the tigers, react to catnip. Why? Because I lost my pattern for the fish I knit with wool yarn and then felt and stuff with catnip. And when I sat down with my needles sans pattern, the one that came out was very nearly the size of a ream of paper. Which is a bit large for a domestic cat.

As it turns out, they get strange calls all the time. This week it was the lady with bees on her porch who wanted the zoo to come and remove the hive. And who became angry when she learned they wouldn't do that.

As for me, I'm waiting for a call back from the animal enrichment person. I'm really hoping they'll accept my fish. And that if this happens, I can be there and take photos.

This video answers your question.

If they accept your fish, you have to make them promise to tell you when they're going to give it to the tigers. And then invite me along. :-)

That would be So Cool. I'd love to be there too, but I'm not sure how large an entourage you'd be allowed.

I still haven't heard back from the zoo. If I don't get a response by quittin' time tomorrow, I'll have to call again.

On an unrelated note, thanks for the link to the pretty boys. It's still open on my machine at home. :-) Also look for a PM from me.
