Tiger is a male, domestic Bengal cat who arrived at the sanctuary in 2006. He wasn’t quite a year old yet when he came to The Wildcat Sanctuary.
We’d received a call from a woman on the day she’d purchased Tiger. She said the cat was trying to attack her and she couldn’t keep him. She threatened to have Tiger euthanized. It’s so sad and infuriating when we hear something like this. So many pay a lot of money to have the look of the wild, but refuse to accommodate these cats’ wild behaviors.
Life at the Sanctuary
Tiger lives with other hybrids in the Hybrid Haven section of the sanctuary. He’s a very friendly cat who enjoys spending time with the keepers, usually jumping on them any chance he gets to ride around on their shoulders while they’re cleaning his habitat.
He’s definitely one of the most outgoing hybrids at the sanctuary and loves all caretakers who come into his bungalow. Tiger’s made many friends with other Bengals, most recently Max #1 who’s another surrendered Bengal cat. These two are often found hanging out with each other on their favorite perch.
Today, Tiger lives the life he deserves, being wild at heart. He has trees to climb, hammocks to catnap in, and companionship of his own kind. We’re so glad we were able to step up and rescue this little guy.
How You Can Help
Caring for a wild cat for life – even a small hybrid like Tiger – 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 Tiger’s sponsor parent?
Or even a one time donation toward his 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!
