Nokomis, a cougar, was surrendered at six months of age when his owner in Oak Grove found authorities knocking on their door. Oak Grove had an exotic animal ordinance so it was illegal for her to keep him.
Nokomis was being fed Whiskas canned cat food and all his baby teeth were gray and cracked. Our vet had to pull his baby teeth, but his adult teeth came in just fine.
Nokomis has grown into a beautiful adult cougar. He is one of our largest males, but cries like a baby when he wants a caregiver to provide attention to him.
Nokomis’ favorite toy is anything he can destroy like basketballs or stuffed animals. He also prefers to live alone and has made it quite clear that sharing his space with another cougar is not an option.
