Cheetah Update: Josie

From your last update on Josie, we’d like to tell you a bit more about him and what he has been doing over the past six-month period.

As you know, Josie arrived at CCF an orphan with his sister, Nina, when they were 8 months old. When siblings reach sexual maturity, the different sexes need to be separated; therefore Josie was placed with another orphan near to his age, Gremlin. Josie and Gremlin have formed a strong friendship. It’s amazing that their stalking instinct is so strong that at feeding time they sometimes get so mesmerized by a passing warthog or kudu that they forget to come and eat. Otherwise, they have very healthy appetites and come at a run at feeding times, frequently racing their neighbors, Klein and Merlot, down the fence line.
