African Serval cat

TUTTLE, Okla. – You never know what’s going to happen to you visit Tiger Safari in Tuttle.

Visitors may feel a snake around their neck or get a chance to hold a kangaroo.

Now they’ll also get a better look at this beautiful cat, an African Serval.

It looks like a cheetah but is much smaller.

The cat is the newest member of the Tiger Safari.

It was rescued from a home that was not suitable for it.

OSU students helped design the landscaping for the cats habitat.

“We had a bunch of people from the community help erect this cage, along with precare nursery donated plants in this cage, as well as employees who took their time to spruce up the cage for the enjoyment of everyone this Easter weekend,” Tiger Safari’s Bill Meadows said.

The cat has been domesticated so it will likely be an ambassador animal visitors will be able to see up close.
