Amara was born at Cat Tales. She was part of a litter of three. A facility in the state of California asked if we would provider a pair of cubs for them. They knew we had taken in Sampson & Deliah and they had obtained a pair of their cubs seveal years prior. Amura was a bonus baby as we had a space for her due to an older animal passing away. As a Young cub, she grew up with a rescue dog named Sage. Now they are still "BFF" but she has really started to flirt with Tigger and Zorro. Amura is a Siberian Tiger.
