Nunda the African serval was a former wild pet

Nunda and her brother Phoenix, African servals, were surrendered by a private owner. As happens all too frequently, the owner moved to a state where it was illegal to have exotic cats as pets and was concerned that they would be seized and destroyed.

Phoenix and Nunda arrived at 14 and 16 lbs., the smallest servals we had ever seen. Nunda had already had surgery for an intestinal obstruction after eating one of the owner’s leather belts. Wild cats are just that – wild and unpredictable, not meant to live in a house but rather enjoy living as free as they can possibly be.

At The Wildcat Sanctuary, they both enjoy safe toys such as feathers, cardboard boxes and indestructible balls. But their favorite thing is a pool in the summer. They now live with several other servals in a free-roaming habitat.

Though small, they’re still wild with many needs.
