Laila was born in Antwerp Zoo in April 2010, she arrived at WHF, The Big Cat Sanctuary in September 2011, she won the hearts of keepers and staff immediately. Sadly Laila’s mother died when she was just 2 months old so she was partly hand reared by the keepers at Antwerp Zoo, as a result she is quite friendly and bravely takes hand-feeds and enjoys company.
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.
