Shambala Preserve

12 May

ZeusPatrick the LigerI was reading the book Rescued, about the pets and animals that suffered in Hurricane Katrina. The book mentioned the Shambala Preserve, a haven for exotic big cats who were abandoned by zoos, circuses or individual pet owners who no longer wanted to care for them and are too domesticated to be released back into wildlife.

Patrick the LigerThis is Patrick, a liger, which means a cross between a lion and a tiger,  Interesting strip!

ZeusAnd this is my favorite, Zeus, with his untamed mane.  If I were to sponsor a big cat he would be mine!!
