Sponsor a cheetah - Rocket


Rocket (HeChee) came to CCF at about 7 -8 weeks old in 2019. He was very small, tired and scared when he first arrived. The Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism (MEFT) said that Rocket was caught by farmer after his dog was found chasing it. The farmer kept Rocket for a week and tried to get a permit to keep him but MEFT denied the request. Rocket was paired with Jaya who arrived shortly before he did. They became adoptive siblings and are very close now. They love playing together and used to take turns chasing each other around their nursery enclosure.

In 2020 the pair became friends with Hans and they can usually all be found snuggling together in their enclosure.
