Raven is a sweet and sassy black leopard who is considerably smaller than average. Don’t let her size fool you. She can hold her own, but her petite frame coupled with her great affection towards humans makes her one of the favorites here at CARE. Raven is always open to a new friend, especially ones who give her lots of time and love.
Milo is a troubled soul. He was bought as a pet by woman who was mistakenly informed that a leopard would make a wonderful companion. To add to the misinformation, the woman was talked into viciously declawing Milo. It was a horrible choice that Milo will have to suffer with for the rest of his life. As a cub, he was a cute little thing and his owner would wait on him hand-and-foot, feed him at the dining room table, and let him snuggle up to her in bed.
However, leopards don’t stay tiny and harmless forever. Leopards are not only wild and dangerous but are likely the most dangerous of all big cats. Once Milo outgrew his welcome (and his owner’s bed) he found a home at CARE. He went from being pampered in a lovely, warm house all of his life, to being put into an outdoor enclosure all by himself. Although his enclosure is state of the art, he stopped trusting humans and decided he was better off alone. Milo needs caregivers, sponsors and adoptive parents with patience. In the past years he has spent at CARE he has learned to trust a few people. He is worth the wait… his wild spirit is mesmerizing and his gaze will hypnotize you!
Ace is a Black Leopard with a distinct presence. Ace, like most leopards, loves to hang out in the highest spot of his enclosure. Most big cats enjoy looking across the vast Texas landscape, getting a birds-eye-view of their surroundings. Ace can be an aloof cat and doesn’t care much for most people’s attention, and especially not fond of men. But, occasionally he chooses people that he loves and is an amazingly loyal friend.
