First Photos of Nia!

The Cat Ambassador Program is so excited to share their newest addition….Nia.

Nia means “Purpose” in Swahili.  And, like Tommy T and all the adult cheetahs in this important program, Nia has a very important “Purpose,” to help everyone who sees her understand what a cheetah is, where they live and how important they are.

She’s already hard at “work,” playing in the Zoo’s Nursery until she joins the Cat Ambassador trainers at the Cheetah Cottage, just like Tommy T did.

Here she is!  We’re ALL purring and smiling here.

Four weeks old.

Nia stares straight into your heart.

Five weeks old…thanks Steve!

Sweet, Soft Purrs
