This is Martin, one of three brothers at Paradise Park

How do I know which is which...Martin has a spot in one of his eyesWink
one of eight in a litter, that all survived, born in Sweden
and named after their football team...I ask you?
beautiful Cheetah's all boys and three over here for the breeding program
as Paradise is partners with WHF in Kent

If you notice he has rain on his head from the drizzling rain most of the day...atmospheric!
Thanks Jenni, Bob, Susan, Peter and Bob for sharing a great damp day together again...was fun

Many thanks to you also for your comments and
special Thanks go to Lavina and Matt for your User Awards...appreciated

Yes, I have a lovely cold at least not flu

Brilliant image Lillian! He does look rather fed up with things - and yes, probably the weather! Smile

A cold? That's hardly full-blown man flu, LillianTongueGrin

Martin? Whata ridiculous name for such a proud and magnificent beast. Honestly!

Great expression on his face, he looks almost peed off with the rain.
