Flying Fish(ing cat)

Fishing cat Minnow is rarely seen on the blog or in the tweets.  Her shy nature keeps her out of most pictures, but she has gotten over her stage fright and she shines during the Cheetah Encounter, where she shows off her natural swimming ability.

First she gets up on the “high dive”

After a fish gets tossed into the pond, Minnow heads in after it

A big splash for a small cat!

After retrieving her fish, Minnow comes up with her reward

A quick swim to the edge and Minnow is out

All in a day’s work for an ambassador fishing cat!

Thanks to photographer Steve Hill for these amazing shots!
