Cheetah Keeper's Notes

It’s easy to see why Cruise is so well loved with his never-ending range of vocalizations.  I love listening to Cruise and Omdillo converse through the fence line, they sound like big house cats… until they realize a human is listening then it is back to growling and slapping the fence!

Since the other four boys have been running for their food, Cruise has also started his own tradition of ‘trotting’ for his.  He doesn’t quite chase the car the entire length of the pen, but for an old man, he sure does move fairly well.  One of his favourite things to do is run half way down the fence line before making a quick detour over to a tree that he marks while watching the car continue along the other side of the pen.  He has his timing down almost perfectly!  By the time the car has come to its stop, Cruise has already beat us to the gate and continues to mew for his food!  Although, there are the times when his favourite spot to mark is a pole right by the entrance gate, and if you are not careful, ‘The Cruise Man’ could also mark you.

    I fell in love with Cruise when I was at CCF in Nov'07. But then I've always had a thing for older men. Happy to hear he's doing well.
