Cuddly Tiger Hiding

Tiger hiding from Ewok in the woods

Ewok has developed a habit of kidnapping cuddly toys. Tiger was found (rescued) this afternoon deep in the woods at the back of the house surrounded by a patch of mushroom guards.
Happily the only injuries sustained was a little dampness.
The other tigers were pleased to hear the good news.
