Growing up with Katana the Leopard
As related by one of our volunteers
Katana has been in her outdoor enclosure now for eight months, she loves playing. She is like a big kid. I spend about a half an hour to an hour every day after work with her. It's good to keep up the bond that I have with her. She loves getting her belly scratched, and having her her face rubbed. She eats approximately 3-4 pounds of raw meat a day, consisting of Beef, Chicken and Pork. She just had her yearly booster shot. (Felovax LVK) I try and walk her on a leash, at least once or twice a week, although it doesn’t always happen. She likes being out, but gets tired quickly, and doesn’t want to go back in her enclosure. Usually I have to carry her back to her enclosure. She weighs about sixty pounds now, and she is just over a year old. I figure she will be around seventy pounds when she peaks. I will be working on another enclosure for her at the end of the year, which will be double the size she is in now.
