Pixie and her cubs

Yesterday, Pixie’s cubs took us a step closer to giving them names. They let us know that the one with a distinctive chest blaze is a female and the one without a blaze is a male.

The big surprise, though, was that Chloe was not done mating. When a suitor approached, she played hard to get, but she eventually appeared happy and contented to have him as her mate. Things got complicated, though, when he paused to cool off in the little pond. Another suitor appeared, Chloe fled, and that was the last I saw.

Thank you for all you do,
