Midas, along with his parents Raja and Jasmine, was rescued from a drive-thru park that was closed down due to inhumane conditions. We placed the 30 remaining cats from this facility in other facilities across the U.S.
Midas’ enclosure was only about 6 feet tall and covered in feces and mud. He was underweight and infested with parasites.
He had scars all over his body from earlier bouts of ringworm, mange and impetigo. Midas is a golden tabby Bengal tiger. His rare coloring, like that of the white Bengal tiger, is the result of a genetic mutation. There are estimated 60-70 golden tabbies in the world. Along with his unique coloring, Midas was a unique tiger. He was always happy and willing to please. When he got a new toy or was enriched with a new scent he would give you the biggest smile you had ever seen. His favorite toy was his large blue barrel which he dragged all over his enclosure and even into his den. Midas had many cute antics that always delighted the volunteers and visitors. He had a white spot on his left shoulder where hair was once missing, but it only adds to his unique personality. Midas fought a long hard battle with skin cancer for 3 years until he lost his fight on April 25th 2011. Midas was such a very special tiger and we miss him more than words can express. He will live on forever here with us at In-Sync Exotics.
