Dear Big Cat Rescue,

Merry Christmas!

I’ve watched two of your big cat videos online and have to say watching tigers rip into pumpkins and lions catching tossed turkey carcasses really brings a smile to my face! Then I feel bad because it’s that time of year again when we’re told to focus our charitable feeling toward our fellow man, but honestly, I don’t much like people.

I know you can’t go feeding people to the lions (this isn’t Rome after all!), but pumpkins and dead turkeys isn’t very sporting if you ask me. I was thinking you could pick something a bit more entertaining like a chiuaua or yorkie (obviously an adult dog as a puppy would stand little or no chance against a lion!)

I’d pay to see that. Who wouldn’t? So the way I see it I have an extra $5 laying around. I’m sending you this. I realize you probably can’t get a chiuaua or yorkie for $5, but maybe I could go in with someone else on a scottish terrier or something? If you decide to not buy dogs with my money then please put it toward the smallest of your big cats (I figure they don’t eat as much).

I’d be totally disappointed by this reply, since it puts the boring in boilerplate, but they make awesome videos.

Here’s one of the ones I referenced in my letter:

I sent more money to another cat charity. Their letter was boring as well. I’ll post it eventually.

Jamie Veronica really likes her name like she likes her cats: Big!
