It Is I, The Meerkat King!

I am the lord and master of all in the sovereign meerkat kingdom, as you can tell by my jaunty little crown, which is totally real and not any kind of optical illusion or trick of the light. You may approach me and pay your respects — only try to do it from exactly this direction and don’t, like, move right or left because… um… it would be disrespectful to such a regal personage such as myself. Yeah, that’s it.

    Crown or no crown I find His Royal Bulging Belly to be a spectacle in its own right.

      Yes, I love the way he’s sitting on his bottom like a person.

      Someone needs to fashion him a real little crown!

    His crown looks like a used coffee filter. Hail to the King Caffeinus!

      I loved Meerkat Manor. Drama, romance, intrigue, betrayal, fight for survival, family loyalty… I always love Meerkats.

      Is anyone else into Naked Mole Rats? Same drama underground.

        “Is anyone else into Naked Mole Rats?”

        I suspect there are VERY few other circumstances in which one would be asked that question, and I shudder to think what they would be! 🙂

        Thanks for the laugh!
