Species: Panthera Tigris - White Tiger
Levi is a beautiful, intimidating, and formidable white tiger. He is a testament to the differing personalities that one can see in CARE’s individual cats. For reasons unknown to any of the CARE compound staffers, Levi has a very strong distrust for almost all of the men. He is very loving and affectionate towards women, but he most definitely does not feel the same way towards men. He was born and raised in Bridgeport before CARE was established; therefore he has led a wonderfully good and loving life. It is anyone’s guess as to why he acts in the way that he does. He will simply not allow men to come near him or any of the other cats that he shares an enclosure with, and there are only a few men on the CARE staff whom Levi can merely tolerate (and they still have to keep their distance). Levi has taught the CARE staff (and most that have come to visit) that just like people, the cats have their own personalities, their own reasons for doing things, and sometimes none of it makes any sense- it is simply their way. He also acts as a reminder that even though these cats are in secure enclosures, they still run the show, they hold the cards, and they’re in control. The stewards of CARE exercise great caution when dealing with this magnificent creature. Levi deserves and receives a great amount of respect.
I love Team Mini Pearl . Levi is one Lucky Tiger.
