Lizzy is a female African serval who arrived at The Wildcat Sanctuary in 2005. She was a year old at the time.
Authorities were called to a residence to capture a serval who’d escaped from a neighborhood apartment complex. City ordinances prohibit possession of wild cats such as this African serval. After a pretty dramatic capture (video above aired on KSTP Channel 5), she was taken to the Humane Society.
Life at the Sanctuary
We agreed to accept Lizzy at our sanctuary. We treated her for severe ear mites and intestinal parasites. Our veterinarian had to stitch up a wound on her front leg, too.
Now, Lizzy’s one of the happiest servals you’ll meet. She loves to play with anything and everything. A blade of grass or stick can keep her amused for hours.
She lives with other servals in a large outdoor habitat with access to a climate-controlled indoor building she can nap or sleep or just hang out in whenever she wants.
How You Can Help
Rescuing young wild cats is so expensive since they each require such specialized care for many years. That’s why our sponsorship program is such a huge help! Would you consider being Lizzy’s sponsor parent?
Or even a one time donation towards her care would help so much. It’s easy to do using the buttons you see at the top of this page.
Thank you for your compassionate support!
