Blondie Serval is one of four girls that came to us from British Columbia in November of 2019. Blondie has a big personality and is not afraid to make sure all the servals know it. She loves to sit on top of boxes, denboxes, and really anything that will elevate her above the others.

How Blondie Came to the Sanctuary

Blondie came to call Carolina Tiger Rescue home on November 26, 2019. She, along with 12 other servals, was rescued from a backyard breeder in British Columbia, Canada. The servals were kept in RVs with no ventilation, no natural light, and unsanitary conditions. The cats were confiscated by the SPCA of British Columbia and taken to a holding facility until they were able to be rehomed to accredited sanctuaries in the United States. 

Personality

According to her keepers, Blondie is the boss of the four female servals from British Columbia. She rules the roost and makes sure the others know it. Blondie is curious and is quick to come to the fence to see if there is any food for her. She is the most aggressive about food and has to be separated from the others when it is time to eat.

Description

Blondie's coat is more pale yellow than the other servals that she lives with. She is distinguishable from her enclosure mates by the thick pink strip down the middle of her otherwise black nose.

Where in Sanctuary

Blondie currently lives off tour on Mimosa Point, sharing an enclosure with the three other female servals she was rescued with, Stevie, Cher, and Queen. Blondie and the girls live in an enclosure next to Daxon Serval.

Backyard Breeders

Blondie and the 12 other servals she was rescued with lived in rough conditions before finding their forever homes in accredited sanctuaries. The backyard breeder they were rescued from was selling their kittens for thousands of dollars and confining the adults in horrific and unsafe conditions. All of the servals were declawed at some point and some show healed fractures on X-rays that are likely a result of metabolic bone disease due to improper diets. The goal of the breeder is to make as much money as possible off of these cats by selling their kittens for as much as possible. Carolina Tiger Rescue asks that you remember these are wild animals that deserve the best life possible. They are predators, not pets, and deserve to be treated as such.
