Pat the Cat

From Sharon: Pat the Cat in his Milwaukee Zoo Exhibit

Pat the Cat, a former cattle killer in Belize is now happy at home in the Milwaukee Zoo and bringing a huge amount of attention to the plight of jaguars! This jaguar was a very successful "problem jaguar Rehab" graduate, who was then transferred to the Milwaukee Zoo where he has become part of the important captive-jaguar breeding program within USA zoos. Pat the Cat has become a "rock star" in Milwaukee! Newspaper articles and television coverage have served well our objective to bring into the international arena, the important work being done through TBZ programs on behalf of this magnificent predator.
Sharon Matola, Belize Zoo founder, reunites with Pat the Cat. His recognition of her is obvious as she visits him at his new home in Milwaukee.

We visited the Belize Zoo and stayed for 2 nights at the Pondside Cabanas at the Zoo'a Education Center earlier this month. Jilario took us on a night tour of the zoo that was fabulous. I highly reccomend it to everyone. You can read all about it and see pictures at my blog http://southenglishtown.blogspot.com/2009/09/belize-zoo-by-night.html
