Puna was born in a litter of 2 at Tiergarten Heidelberg to first time mother, Julieta. She was only getting milk from the female for the first five days of her life, after which Julieta became very uninterested. Puna made her way though the house area one night and fell into the vistor’s area where she was found by keeping staff the following morning. It was decided that she would be bottlefed, yet would live in the enclosure next to her father’s to allow them to bond.
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.
