Duke is our Compound Kitty of the week. As you know, only a handful of our bit cats still live in the old compound area right behind the gift shop, awaiting the time when they get their own grassy habitat areas. Duke is one.
Duke was part of the big Mountainburg rescue that took place late in 2012. He is 17 years old and tends to grumble a lot and otherwise be very talkative.
As one person put it, “Duke was not the happiest kitty in the world when he first got here, but as he’s gotten to know us, he has had one of the most improved attitudes of any tiger since he arrived.”
