DSC_0878_LRThere’s been a lot of excitement building at Minnesota’s The Wildcat Sanctuary.  White tiger cubs Jeremy and Simon have been growing quickly since their rescue last year.  On Thursday, May 14th, the brothers celebrate their very first birthday – in a big tiger way!

Pool dunking, watermelon smashing, chicken chomping, frozen birthday cake slurping, the cubs have the time of their lives enjoying all the goodies sanctuary caretakers prepare to mark their special day.

Watch the cubs’ funny first birthday antics in this cute video:

The Wildcat Sanctuary has a “Wild Space” fundraising campaign to raise funds for an in-ground, tiger-sized pool for these two, as well as the big trees and high perches they’ll love.  Since this will be their home for the next 20+ years, they’ll need plenty of room to roam to live wild at heart the rest of their days at The Wildcat Sanctuary.
