Tara

History

Tara is a female, marbled Snow Bengal, who arrived at the sanctuary in 2007 when she was five years old. As with so many Bengal cats, she was surrendered by her owners because of her destructive behavior in the house and excessive vocalizations.

People buy these cats because of their wildness, yet refuse to tolerate their wild tendencies when they’re in their home. Learn more about hybrids and why we do NOT support breeding them.

Life at the Sanctuary

Tara has become a real love bug and loves to be petted by caretakers and staff. She’ll roll over on her back for her caretakers to rub her belly.   She definitely makes an impression with everyone she meets.

Over the years, Tara’s lived with several different cats here at the sanctuary. She shares the Animal Care Office with caretakers as well as Bengal cat Cooper. They both make sure everyone’s doing their jobs the way they like!

She loves cuddling up for a cat nap on the huge plush tiger toy in the office. After all, she thinks she’s in charge of the big cats, too.

How You Can Help

Caring for a wild cat for life – even a small hybrid like Tara – can be quite expensive. Hybrids usually come to us with special needs, genetic and/or medical issues due to their breeding.

Our sponsorship program helps support the cats’ care costs and allows you to form a special bond with them. Would you consider becoming Tara’s sponsor parent?

Or even a one time donation toward her care would be so appreciated. It’s easy to do using the buttons at the top of this page.

Thank you for caring about the little wild ones, too!
