Meet Cameron the lion and Zabu the white tigress, who are head over heels in love.
Life hasn’t always been kind to the two of them; they were bred in a New England zoo only for the purpose of producing ligers.
Cameron was 200 pounds underweight at the time, while Zabu had genetic defects due to breeding. They were both recovered a few years later, thankfully.
“We built a large natural cage for Zabu and Cameron to share when they were rescued because they are truly attached as a couple.”
Big Cat Rescue
Once they were rescued, they were moved to a new sanctuary and were kept together.
Cameron, on the other hand, became very possessive of Zabu after a while, posing a threat to his guardians.
“We only had two options: permanently separate him from Zabu or neuter him.”
So they decided to neuter him, which meant he lost his magnificent mane, but it was a tiny price to pay to be reunited with his true love.
Running around, nuzzling, and enjoying calm naps, the two love each other’s company.

Unfortunately, a few years ago, they both passed away.
