Jules is our most adorable King Cheetah born in May 2015. She had a rough start when there was a rare strain of Parvovirus that broke out on the farm. Most of the cubs that year did not make it due to the parvovirus. Jules has an extraordinary sweet personality and it just takes one glance from her to melt your heart. She has joined the league of running cats here at the centre, and is running at impressive speeds that continue to make us proud every day.
