Mabel is one of nine tigers that were donated to In-Sync in early 2022 by Terranova Enterprises. In 2019, the USDA permanently revoked Terranova’s exotic animal handling license and fined the owner for multiple violations of the Animal Welfare Act. The surrender of tigers by Terranova is a perfect example of some of In-Sync’s past rescues; big cats forced to participate in the entertainment industry including TV and film appearances, photo shoots, and circus performances.

Mabel is one of three children sired by Pasha and Dayo. Her siblings are Sheba and Gunther. All 5 cats were intact upon arrival, and to prevent accidental pregnancies, the 2 males were separated from the females. After her brother, Gunther, and father, Pasha, were neutered the family was reunited. Soon after, Mabel, along with her sister Sheba and mother Dayo, were spayed to decrease risk the of health complications, i.e. pyometra.

Mabel is the most spirited out of the group and has zero reservations letting everyone, including her neighbors, know she is a tiger! While she has settled down after learning that she can trust us, she is still very tenacious and isn’t afraid to let you know it, especially at feeding. Having never experienced a large playground, pool, or toys, Mabel, initially hesitant, now enjoys running from end to end chasing her big zoo balls and dragging her barrels. We love this beautiful girl and her feisty spirit! We feel so blessed to have her with us. Keeping true to In-Sync Exotics tradition, this marvelous family has been affectionately nicknamed “the Marvels” so when you come out be sure to ask the keepers/volunteers “Where are the Marvels?”
