Dr. Munkhtsog from Mongolia sent me an email and offered me some of his excellent photos of a mother Pallas' cat and her kitens! The photos were taken in the wild in June 2008. I'm very excited that he's letting me host these photos. Please have a look at them!

No, this site isn't dead! I've just been very bad about updating it. I do have some new art to post, and some more photos to post, but first I wanted to show off new Pallas cat plushes which a friend pointed out to me!
Pallas cat plushes

The Brown Pallas cat on the left is the Steiff which I've had for quite a few years now. The smaller grey ones on the right are the new ones.

I can't believe it's been two years since I last updated... Time really moves by fast when you're not paying attention! I have not forgotten nor abandoned this site, and I am still happily looking for photos and art of striped hyenas and Pallas cats. I moved last year, so unfortunately I am no longer close enough to the Feline Conservation Center to get photos of the Pallas cats there, nor to the Living Desert Zoo to get photos of the striped hyenas.

Sebastian Keijmel kindly sent me some more beautful photos he's taken of the Pallas cats at his nearby zoo. The newer photos are at the top of his page. He also hinted that I should update this page, so I'll try to get to that a little more regularly! Also, my computer was hit with a virus last year which wiped out my inbox, so if you sent me an email and I never responded, that might be why.

Sebastian Keijmel sent me some more photos of the Pallas cats at the Rotterdam Zoo! As always, they're gorgeous. The newer photos are at the top of his page. Also, there's a new children's book out by Janell Cannon called Pinduli. It's about a striped hyena! Click the thumbnail below to be taken to its page on Amazon.

Go to Pinduli on Amazon.com

I've redone the photo pages for the Pallas cats so they aren't so disorganized, and also added a ninth page of photos. Also did a new piece of artwork for this page because I was tired of looking at the old one.

I got to the zoo over the weekend and got lots of picures of Alexandra at the San Diego Zoo. I also put up some photos taken by Nancy Vandermey, who kindly let me host them here.

I got more Christmas art from Roz Gibson, and you can see it here, and Heather Bruton also let me use some of her art! Finally, Stripped Hyena told me about his site which you can find here! He has some great photos.

I finally added another page of striped hyena photos! These were sitting around for a while before I finally got unlazy enough to put them up.

Andrea Adams and Norman Wuerthele got more pictures of the Pallas kittens, so check them out!

The Exotic Feline Breeding Center has received 3 more Pallas cats! See all of them here. I also added some photos of the kittens down at the San Diego Zoo; you can see them on Page 4 of the photos section of Pallas cat. And last but certainly not least, I got some amazing art from Kenket! See it here!

The San Diego zoo has a new litter of Pallas kittens! Thank you, guys!

I adopted a Pallas' cat! The Feline Conservation Center received three manuls this year (with more to come), and I was able to adopt half of Nikolai! My friend Andrea adopted the other half of him, and we're very proud parents!

January 26, 2003
Added some art to both sections of the site- Gilda Rimessi and Jonathon Kaufman! Other than that nothing has changed.

Hello! Most everything is up now. I have a few more things to add, and may try to pretty up the site a bit more. The information pages are a bit dry and need photographs added to them. The titles on the striped hyena pages need some graphics, and they'll get them as soon as I can get the drawings done. Otherwise, poke around at your leisure, and if you like it, let me know!
