THAILAND, PHUKET, TIGER KINGDOM

Tiger Kingdom was a revelation. We saw these leaflets after we landed in Phuket and me loving all cats was going to see them. When would you ever see them in the flesh ?
The idea is you pick what size of tigers to visit and then go in their enclosure and play and touch them, without chains. Each size of tigers is a set price. And you can also use your own camera inside the enclosure aswell.
We started with 10 mins with the baby tiger cubs who are between 2 and 4 months. They were adorable and so like my cats when they were kittens.
This tiger is a little bit older at between 5 and 10 months and just like to watch the baby cubs playing.
We then went to see the middle tigers which were between 11 and 15 months. These were big cats and were so beautiful.
We then went to visit the big tigers who are between 16 and 36 months old and these are proper tigers in their size.
This experience left me conflicted. I was so looking forward to seeing them close up but while I was walking around I just felt that they should not be here, they should be out in the wild. But then if they were in the wild would they survive ? They are such beautiful animals.
