When I first arrived here from the UK I had no idea what to expect, I was hoping I would get to feed some animals, not have to see the inside of too many cows! But it was so much better than that, so much better than I could ever have expected!
One of the things I enjoy most here that we get to do every other day is taking a lot of the animals out on walks so they can get more enrichment and it is a bit more interesting than them staying in their enclosure all day every day. It is the strangest thing to have a big cat on a leash and having them walking around your feet!
The two I love walking the most are the two little cheetah cubs, Dew and Dawn. They are so sweet because everyone goes on a walk with them, they love chasing the dogs especially Chloe the little Jack Russell, the poor dog runs and has two of the fastest land mammals in the worlds chasing at her heels, they chase her but once they catch her they have no idea what to do and she just gets a little bat on her nose!
We also walk the caracals, the leopard cubs and the servals. They all have their own places that they like to walk to and their own things they like to chase. Everyone loves walking them and we make sure that everyone gets their turn at some point.
I have loved my first week here and I am looking forward to the next three, I know that the day I have to go back will be a horrible one because I will have to leave all theses amazing animals and wonderful people. But I know this experience will stay with me for the rest of my life. Thank you Cheetah Experience!
