She Was A Neglected Circus Tiger Who Never Felt Love. Then, She Found Her Soulmate…
After eight weeks of treatment, Aasha’s hair was finally starting to grow back. Aasha learned to love water, so much that Keahey put a small tub in her enclosure for her to swim and splash in. Keahey would also spray her with the hose, which she loved.
Eight months later, she looked like a perfectly healthy tiger. Keahy believed that it was time for her to meet other tigers now. They put her next door to another tiger there, named Smuggler, and he fell in love with her. “He went crazy for her and was always showing off for her,” Keahy told The Dodo.
Keahy saw the connection these two had with each other, so she let them “date.” They had supervised playdates until they were eventually able to move into the same enclosure together. Four years later, the two are still inseparable!
