Leisha the Siberian/Eurasian lynx

Leisha, the Eurasian lynx, was surrendered by her owner when city ordinances became more stringent and insurance issues arose that prevented ownership of an exotic pet. She arrived at The Wildcat Sanctuary a very socialized cat with a very healthy appetite. She had been well cared for at her previous home and adjusted quickly to sanctuary life.

Leisha relaxes in the sunShe loves empty milk jugs and scents of all kinds. But the one thing she is not too fond of is other lynx. We tailor all of our cats’ habitats to fit their personalities.  Since Leisha has made it very clear that she does not want to live near another lynx, she doesn’t.  She thoroughly enjoys the special habitat she roams near the bigger cats, the cougars, lions, and tigers.  She may look like a smaller cat but she obviously has a big cat personality!
