The Cheetah Cottage comes equipped with a “vibrant, 1950s-esque” orange shag carpet. Oh My. Its “benefits” are many, one of which is to help a cheetah cub’s traction as he gains his maneuverability and speed using those non-retractile claws. Those are one of the reasons a cheetah is the fastest land animal; claws that never quit. He digs into that carpet and at a dead run takes the corners like he’s an adult cheetah chasing a gazelle. Tommy T and Pow Wow’s running play is more than just fun and games, they are developing those important skills which will showcase the power and the prowess of a predator in the wild.
