We had such a fun day making a cardboard castle for our recently turned 5 year old cougar. I had so may little kitty helpers to paint the castle. At the end of the program, we made cougar masks and paper tails and then pounced down to the exhibit to see the cougar and castle in action. Here are highlights of the day:
Here is the video of his first interaction with the castle if you missed it:
He was more attracted to the ice dragon that the animal keepers made for him. He kept coming back to the castle all day. I am sure it made his day!
Thanks everyone! Special thanks to our keepers who never get thanked by the animals they keep! Happy Zookeepers Week!~ We have the greatest team here at Oatland Island Wildlife Center!
