Meet our big and small cats!

We are home to around 35 cats ranging over 12 different cat species. From the mighty Amur tiger to the leaping servals!

You could even meet our newest residents that have recently joined the Sanctuary! Sonika and Sahee, the Asiatic lions and Leia and Agrun, the Amur leopards!

Our keepers will be giving our cats lots of treats, such as different forms of enrichment or tasty snacks like blood lollies! Some keepers will be delivering training sessions with our cats, so there is plenty of opportunities for you to see our cats and ask our keepers as many questions as you’ll like!
