This Baby Cheetah Wanted Love, And He Found It In The Strangest Of Places.
Kumbali was the runt of his litter. The tiny cheetah was removed from his mom to be bottle-fed by the staff at the Metro Richmond Zoo in Virginia. Despite growing strong and healthy, Kumbali, however, does need a companion. At this point he cannot be put back with his siblings and mom as he would be seen as a threat.
Instead, his new family member is a canine named Kago. The lab mix is a rescue that is calm and confident, a great balance to Kumbali’s scared and nervous nature. Humans may see this bond as odd but to these two it’s completely natural.
