Meow, I am a momma cat. I'm hanging out in this small cage with my kittens. I really wish that I could send them outside to play.
Mew! I'm a kitten! I want to pounce upon and bite all of the things! What's that moving outside the cage?
Look to the left of the photo above to see the amazing markings on these cats, like leopard spots. I'm sorry I didn't get a better photo of one of their beautiful coats.
Most of the cats were napping. Typical.
My blankie is warm and fuzzy. Snzzzzz.
After the cat show, we browsed the International Marketplace. The "Magic Lantern" stall was quite enchanting.
We happened across an exhibit of vehicles and other military equipment from WWI. Although it was interesting, I didn't take many photos because the light was terrible, and almost everything was khaki green on a khaki green background. However, I did like this poster:
You can tell that this is sponsored by the federal government because the descriptive text is in both official languages, English and Français.
Then we went to the farm building. The alpacas were adorable, as usual.
There was a momma Clydesdale with her four-month-old twin daughters, shown here flopped out on the straw:
A moment later, the babies got up and started grooming each other. Cutie-pies!
We met a friendly cow. Her name is Charlotte. Here she is getting her neck skritchy-scratched by an admirer.
Yeah, that's the spot.
When we had had our fill of furry creatures (and the aroma of their warm poop, which was being blown around the farm building abundantly by dozens of whirring fans), we headed off to the midway for ice-cream waffle sandwiches. However, our plans were foiled by the end of a soccer game at BMO stadium that exact moment. Approximately 30,000 red-shirted fans (that's the stadium's capacity) poured out into the fairgrounds. The midway, which was just ahead of us, became so jammed with humans that walking traffic was almost at a standstill.
Neither of us like crowds, so at that point we called it a day. Next year, our first stop will be the ice-cream waffle stand!
