i was ringing up a winter hat for a man the other day and i said “oh, it’s so cute! i love the pom-pom on the top.” and he smiled and agreed and a few seconds later he picked the hat out of the bag and said “you called this a pom-pom?” and i said yes, that’s what i call them, and he explained that he was still learning english before he touched the hat again and said “pom-pom" in a fascinated voice

This meerkat seemed very inrigued by a red rose. The animals at the park were given the flowers to promote their animal adoption programme. More details at the Knowsley Safari Park website
