Cheetah Update: Gryffindor Cubs

The Gryffindor Cubs have not yet been at CCF for 6 months, so no update is available yet.

Ron is named after one of the characters in the popular books by J.K. Rowling and although he appears to be the most aggressive, he is the most gentle of the three siblings, so long as there is a meat treat involved. He is the most dominant, and often chases his sisters around the pen for play, preferring to chase them than chasing lures. He is highly food-motivated and will approach anyone with treats. Ron is the most gentle during feedings and loves to lick your hand for a while after the food is gone. He is the largest of the three and the lightest in colour. Ron's distinguishing marks are his kinked tail and almond-shaped eyes, which are a very light amber colour. He has a very laid-back personality and is very well behaved. He tends to be the favourite of visitors because of his gentle nature and likes to have his ears scratched.

Harry is named after J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter character, because when “she” arrived she had a small lightning-bolt-shaped scratch under her right eye. She is very shy around people and will wait until her siblings, Ron and Hermione, approach people before joining in the fun. Her favourite toy is an old t-shirt tied to a string and she is the fastest of the three siblings when playing. Harry is very golden in colour with dark eyes and is only slightly smaller than her brother, Ron. She is incredibly observant, and will watch you as you walk around the pen. When an animal such as a mouse, tortoise or lizard, etc. is found in the pen, she will be the first to investigate.

Hermione is named after one of the characters in the popular books by J.K. Rowling and is the smallest and darkest of the three siblings...and the most playful. She has a small teddy bear face and big dark eyes, by far the cutest of the three. She is very gentle by nature, but not as much as her brother Ron. She tends to follow Ron's lead during feeding. Hermione is the most social and will chase her brother and sister around the pen even though she is much smaller. She is an instigator, but able to hold her own. Hermione is also very food-motivated and will lie in your lap during feeding. She also loves to lick your fingers after feeding. Her favourite scratch spot is behind her ears and neck.
