Bella came to CCF in December 2017 when she was about a year and a half old. Bella was kept as a pet on a private farm with a male cheetah, Katiti. After not having permits granted to continue keeping them as pets, the pair were handed over to CCF.
Before arriving at CCF, the pair had a poor diet of chicken necks, so have been transferred on to a diet of red meat with a vitamin and calcium supplement to help them grow and develop properly. Bella is very habituated to people and will always purr whenever people are near. She is confident in nature and is learning quickly during her training sessions at CCF. Bella and Katiti are inseparable, spending most of their days together exploring the new enclosures and meeting other cheetahs.
