This fine fella is Lionel resident big cat of the Los Angeles Zoo. He's about 23 years old now, a former pet confiscated from his "loving" owners who'd had him declawed, pretty much crippling the big guy for life. Along with his mate Cookie, he makes for one of the grandest attractions of the collection and always ready for a picture! 4/26/2011 Just heard ol' Lionel passed away 3 days after I took this picture...as said, he was very old and had been suffering complications from his declawing and other assorted health problems for quite some time. His quality of life had taken a major turn for the worse the day after I'd taken this shot and he was put down on Saturday. Poor old boy...as said, he was a grand fellow and much loved...he will be missed.
