    Pity you can't draw very well.

    Not like you and your drawing of the extinct flappy bird.

    It's still hung up on my wall. That masterpiece took me two hours, got me kicked out of study and sent to the head of year.

    Must’ve been biased; Always had a wee chat to me about my drawings.

    Welcome @RedPanDan. Your profile picture of a Temminck's golden cat caught my eye. Is it Saigon?

    Cool, he was the last Temminck's golden cat kitten born in Australasia to survive to adulthood; and was also one of the last four in the region to be exported in 2011. It's a shame the region have phased them out.

    Do you know how he interacts with his mate? Saigon was handraised so is less aggressive than most males of his species (his brother was highly aggressive to females) but I'm not sure if his background would have impacted upon his social development.

    Unfortunately all I know is that his mate, Myo-tho, who was born in Wuppertal Zoo in Germany, has an off-show enclosure with more privacy in the hopes there’ll be kittens in the futures.
