was previously owned by Valerre Wurst, the trainer/handler from whom Max
first received training with big cats. Valerre moved to CA and could not
keep Meira and Leo there. Since we knew the cats previously, we were
excited about giving them a home here at Project Noah.
This photo on the left is a
very special picture. Max's dad (who passed away in 1998) is petting
baby Meira in 1995 when we lived in NC.
