Yesterday we went to a very special place in Sarasota.  The Big Cat Habitat they were having an annual fund raiser for their rescue of big cats, and many other animals that have found themselves in need of a permanent loving home.
I met this elephant there.  He is a very rare Asian cross tusked elephant that lives here in FL and was visiting for the fund raiser.  
It is so important to protect these animals.  Don't buy exotic animals for pets.  What happens is they end up looking for new places to live and their situations can be horrible.  Here in Sarasota the Rosaire family at  The Big Cat Habitat is giving everything they have to provide sanctuary for life to these animals.  They are lovingly cared for.  You can read about it on their site in their words.
I just want to show you the animals we got to see.

one hilarious dog show
The afternoon was a lot of fun.  It is great living in a circus community. 
Today I finished the cocoon and cloche.
