Cerella came to live with us in May 2007 along with her mother, siblings, another cougar and a tiger. Her owners had been in contact with us for 3 years hoping we would have room for their cats since they had a desire to move out of state.
Each time we turned them down due to lack of space, but when they called us to tell us their house had burned down and the cats, who were housed on the property, were left unprotected with no running water or electricity, we had to do something to assure the cats’ safety.
We took in the cats, hoping we could place some of the cats in other facilities.
Unfortunately, the only facility that could help us wanted only one male and one female cougar, and we didn’t have the heart to break up the family who have been together since Cerella and her littermates were born.
Cerella adjusted to her new home rather well. She is very sweet and affectionate, like her brother Keenan, and often looks for chin rubs and/or treats. She loves to steal food from her cagemates, play with the balls and plastic ducks and crawl through the pipe in the playground.
