Pallas Cats - Lincoln Park Zoo - Poem by Ima Ryma

Pallas's cats, we're brothers three,
Home here at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Also called a manul we be.
Peter Pallas picked us - tiz true!
A zoologist, Pallas, found
Us in central Asia, and wrote
Of us, so the whole world around
Would know we're cats of worthy note.
About a domestic cat size,
We are stocky with long dense fur,
And piercing pinhole pupilled eyes.
We scent mark our space for sure.

We're very well taken care of,
A trio of brotherly love.
