    Hopefully the tigerdogs will be convincing enough that they’ll use those in traditional ‘medicine’ rather than real tigers.

    Cute Cat is cute – also probably embarrassed.

    I kinda feel the same way about Thai Ladyboys.

    I feel bad for the dogs. It can’t be easy on them when their owners are trying to dye the fur near their eyes and mouth.
