* Fabulous Furry Friday is proud to present our…
Salute to Meihem!!!!!!
Yes, the darling duo turns TWO this weeK, and all things Pinky aside, we are delighted to celebrate the Meihem’s big week! (For those of you who are new to panda watching, the Meihems are the twin cubs of Lun Lun and Yang Yang of the Cublanta Zoo …um I meant Zoo Atlanta…deep in the southern belle state of Georgia.
I remember the day they were born. I was watching the Zoo Atlanta panda cam and Lun Lun was in the den, and wouldn’t you know it a little cub just slid out. of…you know…the cub slidey place, and then not even a half hour later, here comes ANOTHER one! I immediately called one of the panda faithful, knowing she would be watching as well, and we yelled into our phones and jumped around our respective kitchens.
What a day!
We started off calling them The Twinkies, but when they got their real names at 100 days, Mei Lun and Mei Huan, we began to call them the Meihems, because when you have more than one panda cub, you are bound to have Meihem!
But of course, Mr Wu had had a whole year of being the center of attention, and he. was. not. pleased at this development.
And then there was the old gender misidentification thing. For the first four months, we thought they were boys…
So, once they were determined to be girls, appropriate measures had to be taken!
And in March of 2014, The Meihems joined the Panda Scouts, and have worn their uniforms proudly, ever since.
We hope you enjoyed this Tribute to Meihem, and if you would like to read ALL the cartoons about this dynamic duo, be sure to pick up a copy of The Panda Chronicles Book 5: Pandapocalypse NOW, starring the Meihems and Princess Pinky.
Be the bear!
