Shanghai Leopard Cat
Male Leopard Cat
DOB 1991 – 2/4/2010
Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 9/25/96
Shanghai arrived at Big Cat Rescue on 9/25/96. He arrived with a missing ear and was crippled because of a cat fight, but he has since blossomed into a remarkably beautiful cat despite his defects. He never had any fur below his neck until we switched his diet from chicken and turkey to primarily ground beef muscle and organs. He has since developed a beautiful coat. Shanghai is very shy, but he will watch curiously as keepers clean his enclosure. Shanghai was neutered and now shares a large enclosure with his bengal cat friends, Zulu and Zander. We do not encourage breeding of domestic wild cat hybrids. These cats are emotionally confused and often are born with life threatening defects.
