Donoma

Donoma the cougar.

Donoma is a wild born cougar cub that came from Montana. He was found alone and struggling in a river and may have not survived without human intervention. He was brought to the Montana Wildlife Center where it was determined he was too young to be rehabilitated and released. From there, Donoma made his way to TWS as a young cougar in 2008.

Donoma has grown into a beautiful cougar. He lives in a free-roaming habitat in Cougar Cove with several other wild-born cougars who have also grown up at the Sanctuary.  Most days, you’ll find them all laying around together, catnapping high up on their huge perch, surveying the entire Sanctuary from their great vantage point.

As he’s grown up here at the sanctuary, Donoma’s personality has blossomed. He is a fastidious groomer, always making sure his paws are squeaky clean after every meal. He has also established himself as quite the performance artist – literally. When offered a painting canvas, he prefers to toss it through the air into the grass in order to create his masterpieces.

When we take in a cub, like Donoma, we make a huge financial commitment. Cougars will usually live into their twenties here at the Sanctuary. Your sponsorship of Donoma would help us assure the quality care he will need for many, many years to come.
