South Chinese Tigers, critically endangered, have not been seen in the wild for at least 25 years. They were hunted as "pests" under Mao Zedong. Now they are given special protection by China. A re-wilding program is ongoing there and in South Africa.
these kitties actually require baths weekly to keep the oils from the skin from building up and causing health problems (clogged pores etc end up causing infection) Sad for kitties who have to adapt to the baths, it is not easy for the owners either.
