Hey guys,
I came across your site the other day while surfing the web with my daughter. We have really been into watching the Panda Bear on Cam at the San Diego Zoo who is adorable. My daughter was asking me if we could find some tigers to watch since she loves them. So I found you guys, but it was even better then finding just tigers, man we hit the jackpot Exclamation Exclamation Lions and Even Lemurs!! My daughter flipped when she saw Zaboo! Laughing
Since then I have come back, more than once a day.. Very Happy It's amazing to see these Lions and Tigers and Lemurs so well taken care of. It makes my heart swell with love for these animals, all animals. We have decided to make a collection walk around our neighbourhood to help you guys out, we'll see how many Tigers/Lions/Lemurs we can feed in a day Very Happy Laughing Very Happy Exclamation

You guys ROCK!!

Oh by the way..are any of you single, your quite the good looking bunch of guys Cool

Keep up the good work, and keep those cams running!!

Karyn aka Zulu

Wow! Thank you so much for your kind words and support! The Sanctuary needs viewers like you Big time and both David and I thank you in advance for you and your daughter's support (and your neighborhoods) Very Happy . We try extremely hard to provide large naturalistic, environmentally enriching habitats for our residents as well as state of the art Vet care. Of course this is extremely expensive so your contributions to our educational cause is very heart felt by not just David and myself, but every animal we care for. It is our goad to instill an interest in wildlife and habitat protection to a Global Audience via our web site. We receive little to next to nothing in financial support for this project despite the hundreds of thousands of viewers to the site. Hearing your kind words and the way our site has effected your daughter's interest in wildlife is the EXACT reason David and I created the Tigerhomes Sanctuary Web Site. We both welcome you and your daughter and hope you have many upcoming years of learning and gaining knowledge on the importance of wildlife conservation. Again, we both thank you. Oh, by the way, you may be interested in the Sanctuary's 3 "Educational DVD's". They are availible in the Gift Shop. If your daughter is into Tigers & Lemurs she is going to love LEMURS - Tails in the Canopy, and POWERCATS - Locked & Loaded" featuring the Sanctuaries Lemurs and Big Cats ( & David and me) Very Happy

Sincerely,

Jason Abels

It just amazes me that you have such love and drive to help these beautiful creatures.
Thanks for the info on the videos, I am looking into those for sure. Wink

You know even if its cleaning up the Lions den like you guys were today, I agree with all the other members that you have an amazing job, I would love to devote my life to something like that. I am completed addicted to watching these animals, and also hoping to get a glimpse of you guys too once in awhile Very Happy

Welcome Karyn! (aka Zulu/;>). Addicted/obsessed--oh yeah! I know so well how it is......from day 1 of finding TigerHomes.org I was 'hooked' for good. There is no place like TigerHomes....there is no place like..........Lions & Tigers & Lemurs, OH MY!! Always great to hear from another 'addict' and we do have cam couseling sessions from time to time.....just kidding!! Laughing No cure (don't want one Exclamation ) just more cam-watching whenever I get the chance. Shocked

Enjoyed reading your posts...........you have me wondering......please............who is Zaboo? Laughing Laughing Awesome that you are planning on 'spreading the word'. Like J said, that's what this is all about. Very, very cool. Cool

Since this thread is about 'a daily peek' is seems the most appropriate place to post: LOVE THE FRAMES for the cams. Looks great....WOW Exclamation I don't think I am imagining things, but I am fairly sure they were not there this morning Shocked . Looks great! Manohmanoh you guys are always busy tweaking and improving here. My thanks to all of you for all you do. Smile Arrow cams are calling.............. Arrow Very Happy

I second everything GB3llma stated. The frames really set off the view.

I been wanting to do that for some time with the framing ! I went by Alex house this morning and we (he) tweeked a few thing and that was one of them ! And the other one was the page that come up if you have not loged in or signed up to get to the cams check it out ! Alex added some of the cam shot winners so people can see what they would be missing if they don't sign up and be a MEMBER !

Alex is working on content now that's been written that he has to code and tweak and get up on the site so that stuff will be showing up soon Exclamation

And yes this TEAM does ROCK !!!

I am so PROUD of them Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Thanks for the great feedback here. We are experimenting with page load time and 56k users should see a slight improvement based on the changes we made today. Broadband users probably won't notice much change as far as speed. There's another larger modification Dave and I discussed today that "should" significantly effect cam page load time for everyone. We are hoping to make that happen in the next week or two.

We encourage ANY constructive criticism. You may not see changes happen right away (or at all) but virtually everything posted in this forum gets discussed.

THANKS SO MUCH! Very Happy
