Heather Tookey lives in Becknehemen, England. And her family has an unusual pet.
This story began several years ago. Heather went to South Africa as a seasonal volunteer.
She ended up in the Cheetah Reservation organization.
The duties of the employees of the society included caring for orphaned cheetahs.
The volunteers also looked after the adults.
The animals were to be trophies for wealthy clients. Then the thought came to Heather’s head: she must save the cheetahs. At least one.
Heather launched a promotion through social media. She needed to collect a certain amount of money.
The girl’s efforts paid off in full. All cheetahs were bought and transported to reserves.
Heather put in her own £ 5,000 and took one tiny cheetah kitten home. So she had a new friend named Slezinka.
The girl’s efforts are not enough to completely shut down the business of breeding cheetahs for hunting for trophies, because a lot of money is spinning in this area.
But Heather could not just close her eyes to this cruel activity.
A Slezinka is comfortable in the company of its savior. The spotted pet is very affectionate and kind. Heather and Slezinka have charming selfies. Now the girl is not afraid, because next to her is a devoted cheetah friend!
