Meet Lambert, a beautiful lion, whose owner refused to take care of him anymore.
Lambert is an African lion, who was kept at his owner’s home as a pet.
The family bought him illegally, but one day, they refused to have him at their home, and he was given to the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.
So, recently, the founder of Texas’ In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue, Vicky, was asked from GFAS to take the refused animal.
She was told that Lambert’s owner bought illegally the little cub, after his children watched the famous movie “The Lion King”.
Impressed by the movie, the kids wanted to have a little baby lion, like Simba, so their daddy purchased one immediately for them.
Unfortunately, after three months of care at home as a pet, they changed their mind to continue to keep him and, so he appeared at the rescue center.
Vicky also was told, that the former pet used to sleep in the bed with a blanket. So, Vicky decided to provide a comfortable sleep conveniences for the lion cub, so he will not be stressed.
She entered into his enclosure and put a blanket on the floor in the corner. Lambert immediately wrapped on that blanket, as he was waiting exactly for this warm and soft piece of cloth to nap.
From that day on, Vicky always gives a blanket to Lambert for his sweet nap.
Even now, when he is already 2 years old, he again sleeps with a blanket.
He still lives with Vicky, as he couldn’t be released to the wildlife, because he is too domestic to be able to live there. He enjoys his life in the center, where he can run and live in the big playground and den area of 7,000 sq.
Lambert is very playful, active, full of energy, and he likes not only his cozy blanket, but cuddling, as well.
