Happy, happy 21st Birthday to our dearest Queeny

Sacred Birman cat Queeny reached the respectable age of 21 today, June27th 2023 and we hope to have her amongst us for many more years to come, in good health and spirit like she still is now.

Queeny and her three other Sacred Birman friends (aged 18, 16 and 15) of the former De Jonge WildCats Cattery are the fortunate cats living comfortably at the Wild Cats World home and office. Queeny with her age and personality truly is the Matriarch of the extended family of cats and other animals in our care in the Netherlands and South Africa. We provide the best of care to big groups of rescued feral cats, wildcats, domestic cats and big cats such as leopards, cheetahs but also to the medium-sized servals, caracals and smaller African wildcats and Black-footed cats

Welcome servals from Belgium to our Sanctuary

On Wednesday May 4, 2023, 3 servals named Luik (Stica), Wondelgem and Gent (named after the cities where they were found), flew on the direct Air Belgium flight from Brussels airport to Johannesburg.

Luik was confiscated by authorities, Wondelgem and Gent were caught after they escaped from their home where they were kept as illegal pets. They were brought to the Natuurhulpcentrum were they stayed until they found their forever home in South Africa. They will now live a happy life in the Wild Cats World Sanctuary in an environment and climate where they belong.

See the three video’s of their release at the Sanctuary at the end of this page.

We want to thank Air Belgium for the comfortable flight and smooth cooperation and Animal Care & Inspection Center for the excellent care in the last hours before departure. As the ACIC is a state of the art animal facility, the servals could stay there in the best conditions and with the least possible stress.

The boys quickly left the crate to start exploring and are doing well. They are and are looking relaxed so without doubt they approve of
their new living conditions.

One way ticket from Belgium to South Africa

Three male servals, currently named “Luik”, “Gent” and “Wondelgem” after the cities where they were found or confiscated, are being prepared for their big journey from Belgium to South Africa on 22 March 2023.

At Wild Cats World Sanctuary we are happy to welcome them and give them a wonderful forever home……living like a serval and not as a pet.

We will update you after they have arrived and settled in again.
