This 9-month-old tiger was so sick, she weighed 30 pounds when she was supposed to weigh around 120
When she was rescued from circus, her “bald spots covered almost her entire body and her skin was dry [with] cracked, darken areas and bleeding”
“Every day, twice a day, I would go in and give Aasha medications and spend time with her,” told Keahey
At first, Keahey would have to chase Aasha to get her into medicated baths… but the cub soon started to like them and her condition improved drastically!
“Within eight months she looked like a real tiger”
Aasha was then introduced to a bigger tiger named Smuggler who “went crazy for her and was always showing off for her”
Now the two live in the same enclosure together and Aasha is a healthy and very much loved tigress!
And she just can’t get enough of baths!
