Murray is a 25-year-old bobcat that resided at the Fejervary Children’s Zoo in Davenport, Iowa. The city council voted to close the zoo and to relocate all of the animals. Given Murray’s age and proximity to The Wildcat Sanctuary, we made an exception to take Murray in, even though we are operating at capacity.
We don’t know how long Murray will be with us, he’s showing signs of old age with arthritis and kidney disease, but he will have a home at TWS for as long as he is comfortable.
His hearing and eyesight are poor but we soon learned his nose works just fine! Murray loves the smell of catnip and Lawry’s seasoned salt. A very special thank you to The Mahley Family Foundation for funding Murray’s habitat.
