Meet Luna The Pantera: Perhaps The Fiercest Rescue Ever

ADVERTISEMENT

In the heart of Siberia, a tiny panther named Luna faced the odds from the beginning. Born in a zoo, her mother inexplicably rejected her, depriving Luna of the necessary care and nourishment to thrive. Luna’s chances of survival seemed bleak, but fate had a different plan.

Victoria, well-versed in nurturing big cats, stepped in to be Luna’s savior. With a carefully curated diet brimming with essential vitamins, Luna’s newfound champion worked tirelessly to give her the fighting chance she deserved.

A profound bond blossomed between Luna and her caregiver as the days passed. Recognizing the depth of Luna’s needs and the love she had to offer, the woman made a life-changing decision: she would give Luna a forever home. This act of kindness wasn’t taken lightly; it was a pledge to give Luna the life she deserved.

Luna the Panther seamlessly integrated into the woman’s family, encountering a Rottweiler friend named Venza. Though their introduction required patience and care, a captivating friendship emerged. Luna and Venza are now inseparable, embarking on adventures, playing, and providing the world with tons of cute animal pictures.

Their companionship is a testament to the enduring power of friendship and a sight to behold. Together, Luna and Venza are an absolute delight, showcasing the boundless joy from true camaraderie. Share this phenomenon with your friends and family!

Lovely photos, but this is not okay. Even if the owner is experienced with big cats, exotic pets are a bad idea. This is not a domesticated animal, it should not be in a house, or a car, or used for pretty photos. It should have been rehabilitated for release in its natural habitat, or if this was not possible, a nature reserve, or big-cat sanctuary. Buying an exotic animal to keep it as a pet is not saving it, it's selfish, and even if the woman is well-meaning, it's dangerous, and possibly cruel, if she isn't as expert in caring for big cats as she claims.

I have to agree with you. Although Luna is beautiful, keeping a wild animal as a pet is never a good idea, because you can never fully domesticate them. I feel sorry for Luna.
