Kali, along with her brother, Odin, came from a breeding facility in Wisconsin. Due to unhealthy living conditions and non-compliance with USDA regulations the facility was forced to close. We rescued 4 other tigers from the facility, affectionately known as Fantastic Four.
The facility contacted us with the intention of staging the rescue of the cubs on television in order to promote their agenda. As we sincerely believe that using animals for publicity is not in the best interest of the animals we declined the television show and agreed to take the cubs. When we declined to do the television show, the breeding facility withdrew their request for us to take any of the cats. A week later, the same facility called us back and asked us to take four older cats. We agreed but only if they included the cubs, Kali and Odin. Again, the facility terminated all contact.
About a month later, we received a call out of the blue giving us a thirty minute warning before the facility showed up in our driveway with 6 tigers. None of the cats had names that we knew of and they did not arrive with veterinarians or health information.
Kali, an iota less than Sultan, is the smartest and most impatient cat at In-Sync Exotics. Kali, the Pavlov of cats, has conveniently trained her legion that her flap on her feed slot is a dinner bell and when it is rung, we are to bring her food. Since she has acquired new neighbors, she has also realized the flap, loud, can be quite annoying to the neighbors and uses it to communicate her displeasure. Her brother is highly aware that he does not run the family, she does!
