On a simple day trip with my friends took a turn for the unimaginable when we stumbled upon a wildlife refuge in northern Kentucky. Originally we had planned a trip to a locally known rock quarry when we took a wrong turn and saw a sign for a Wildlife Rescue Center and tiger baby encounter. I think its safe to say that most people wouldn't pass up the chance to cuddle and feed a baby tiger, so after learning about the organization and waiting for the tigers to wake from their nap, because you never wake a sleeping tiger. We had our opportunity to play with these beautiful powerful creatures. These babies were only 3 months old and stronger than most dogs. While I was constantly aware of their power, I was in awe of their childlike playfulness. Being able to hold them in my arms and feed them gave me a new appreciation for wild animals. This was the most amazing beautiful experience of my life.
