Four Tigers ah ah ah ah.....

Said like the Count from Sesame Street of course
Been working on the four tiger hind leg a little recently
Coming along good
Harder to walk two cats backwards then two cats forward I am finding out
I caught this practice on video, but it won't download rite
So here are a few pics with commentary

First Sumsara and Tora meet in the middle of the cage
Sit down together then hop up into a backwards hind leg side by side

Next they back in between Jai and Kali who are sitting at the front of the arena already. They all four situp and wait.

I really need to work on the spacing here so they are somewhat evenly spaced. As I mentioned I am still having a hard time steering the two backwards in tandem.

Now I call for Jai and Kali to begin the forward hop across the cage to the back door.

Coming along pretty good so far. Should debut sometime this summer.

"So I'll meet you at the bottom if there really is one
they always told me when you hit it you'll know it,
But I've been falling so long
It's like gravity's gone
And I'm just floatin"

Seems like this should probably end with you doing a cartwheel between the front pair of cats and land and style in the middle of the square created by all 4. Work on that for Monte Carlo.

G'day Casey,

Is your ring cage made out of mesh [like reinforcing mesh] or twisted wire?

Not sure what you mean Steve. It is 1/8th inch steel cable which is woven in and out of itself to make 4" by 4" square holes. All the vertical strands are one piece and all the horizontal strands are another. Hope this helps.

Yep - that's what I was asking! I guess it makes for a light but strong cage. Thanks.
