Toronto Christmas - Winter 2008 
Christmas is always a fun time for the cats living at my parents house. Morrison was still a young cat, but he passed away from a genetic hard problem not long after this. Its good to remember him as the healthy, huge and powerful pure-bred Maine Coon with long silver fur who vigorously tore into the new toys that he got for Christmas.We all gather for a group picture before we sit down for our Christmas day brunch.A long standing family tradition is to visit the Toronto Zoo on Boxing Day (thats the day after Christmas, for all you non-Canadians). The zoo is half price (it used to be free) on that day, and the animals tend to be really active because they get special treats and toys to celebrate the holidays.The tigers get a little competitive over the Christmas gifts.

This guy wandered into the covered part of his enclosure to get out of the falling snow and put himself right up next to the glass for this up close picture.The otters didn't mind the weather at all. The seemed to be having fun swimming around in the freezing water, and then jumping out and scampering around on the snow. I snapped this picture just as they were waiting in anticipating for the zoo keeper to start throwing them their food.The entire family of Orangutans gathered right in front of the crowd to get to the Christmas fruit and vegatable treats that the keepers were tossing to them.Mom and baby Orangutans hang out for the crowd.
