Carole Baskin Weighs In On The Houston Tiger, The Internet Is Predictably Skeptical

The plot has thickened with the escaped tiger in Houston. Not only was its owner identified as a murder suspect, but it has also been revealed that it is on the loose again. 

The viral Twitter video has made it onto national news for these worrying developments, and in its coverage on CNN the producers made a controversial choice of expert. To the bafflement of Twitter users everywhere, Carole Baskin was invited onto the show to discuss the issue.

Longstanding rivalry with Joe Exotic aside, many were quick to point out that she herself did not exactly have a clean conscience when it came to the topic of murder. While she might have a good handle on wild animal laws, that isn't what social media has been focusing on.

Loose Tiger Causes Mayhem In Houston

Move over, Tiger King: there's a new big cat keeper in town. There's only one problem, and it's that they can't seem to keep it contained.

A loose tiger is one of the last things you expect to see on a suburban Texan street, but that's exactly what confronted Twitter user @robwormald's parents yesterday evening. Add to the mix a standoff with a gun-toting cop and an outdoor party full of "tasty kids" nearby and you get a recipe for potential disaster.

Eventually, the owners turned up and contained the cat, before fleeing from police with it in the back of their car. While this sadly might not stop them from the illegal ownership of exotic animals, it definitely gave residents of this West Houston neighborhood pause for thought.

Daily News reports that Gökmen Aydın, the general par manager, said: "We wanted to separate them as both belong to different species. Then we realize uneasiness in animals. We started to think about the cause. When they got together later, we saw that they want to stay with each other. They became friends within four months," and we just can't help but awww.

Pamuk and Toby sleep most day, like all cats do, but they play together a lot and absolutely hate being separated for any reason whatsoever. "They sometimes sleep while hugging each other," added Aydın, and okay, que some more awws right about now. We wish them a long friendship even as they grow older and as much happiness as they have in general. Their story brought us immense happiness for sure.

Adorable Big Cats Can Do The Bleps Too

There's a reason that all of us cat lovers also have a special place in our hearts for big cats, and it is that all big cats are basically regular cats... enlarged. They have the same faces - just bigger, they are just as silly - just bigger, and they have the same habits... just bigger. 

And so, their bleps are also... bigger. And though in this case, bigger is not necessarily better, it is definitely just as cute. Regular cat bleps are some of our favorite all time cat pictures, but they're, of course, not the only animals who can do the blep. Foxes are already strong blepping competition, and now, the big cats are officially entering the race too. You be the judge deciding who you think is the master of the blep.
