Artur was born in 2002 in Novosibirsk zoo in Russia. He came to The Big Cat Sanctuary as part of the breeding program in 2004 along with his brother, Artem. They lived together for a while before Artur was introduced to a female, Xizi, and sired two cubs with her in 2008. As he has played his part in the breeding programme he will now spend his retirement with us in Kent.
Adopting helps with the cats husbandry, including food and veterinary care when required.
As an adopter you are able to visit on one of the Supporters Afternoons run throughout the year, (one visit per 12 month adoption period); where you will be able to tour our site at your leisure, enjoy talks from the keepers followed by light refreshments. There is also the opportunity of bringing up to 4 guests for a suggested donation of £25 each.
