TWO YEARS AGO TODAY… ❤
What a difference a day makes… Or in case of 🦁 Ivan-Asen: what a difference two years and a lot of attention, adjustments, visits from our wildlife veterinarians, patience and special care make. Look at our beautiful proud king today.
Only two years ago, on this day, Ivan arrived at FELIDA Big Cat Centre after a long journey crossing several borders from Bulgaria to the Netherlands. 🚚 Every kilometer he was leaving his horrible past further behind him. Not that he was aware of it at the time!
And now, two full years further, he looks nothing like the poor creature that arrived here. He looks like a true king. 👑 All thanks to your support. You made it possible to rescue Ivan from a dark cage in an illegal breeding station in Bulgaria. You made it possible for him to be moved to our special care centre FELIDA. You made it possible for him to receive the intensive care that he so desperately needed! And although Ivan will always need specialized (medical) care, we are proud to provide him with a comfortable life, in which he enjoys the sun on his fur, sand under his paws and playtime with his nephews Masoud and Terez!
Happy anniversary Ivan, we hope to enjoy your beautiful company for many more years to come! ❤
