We’ve watched Donni the bobcat abound up at Cincinnati Zoo. Now acquisition out how he’s allowance agrarian cheetahs in their action for survival. The Enquirer/Meg Vogel

May 4, 2016
When we aboriginal accommodated Donni, he’s one of four cubs active in the Cincinnati Zoo’s nursery. But alike admitting they’re abutting in age, he’s too big to comedy with the bridle of abortive ancestors built-in during a attenuate C-section.
Instead, he plays with Blakely, Australian attend and “nursery dog” who serves as assistant to orphaned zoo animals.
He plays with the bodies who appointment and with blimp toys he’s been given. He’s aloof over two months old, so arena is a big allotment of his day. As he runs and bends, it’s accessible to see how his mantle, the long, scruffy beard on a bobcat cub’s back, would advice adumbrate him from ambitious predators in the alpine grasses of Africa – or ambush them into mistaking him for a honey badger.

Of course, Donni will accept no such worries as he grows up. Instead, he’ll assignment with zoo trainers as he learns to be allotment of zoo’s Cat Agent Program.
That action is aloof beginning.
June 8, 2016
At 15 weeks old, Donni is angular and a little awkward. Continued legs and tail, paws a little too big for his 16-and-a-half-pound body.
And yet, with a abbreviate dart about the zoo’s nursery, he offers a glimpse of the acceleration and activity he’ll anon abound into (along with his appendage and feet).

“We accept no manners. We’re a agrarian thing,” Linda Castaneda, advance trainer for the Cat Agent Program, chides as the cub playfully all-overs up on a human.
But he can be forgiven for that. Everything is still new for Donni.
Like his name. It was given to him about two weeks ago in account of a longtime zoo aliment artisan who died about the time the cub arrived.

And his Moose. Caretakers alien Donni to the 13-week-old amber Labrador puppy on May 22, actualization the program’s fifth cheetah/dog pairing.
Right now, Moose’s job is to serve as Donni’s playmate. Someone for the cub to hunt and be chased by.
So far, they act a bit like siblings. If Moose plays with the blimp otter, Donni wants the blimp otter. Aback Moose barks at the cub, Donni swats him away.
Castaneda compares it to an alone adolescent adjusting to a new little brother.
“‘Everything is mine, why are you here?'” she imagines Donni thinking.
Also adequately new to the bobcat is his training, amorphous aback in mid-April aback he started to eat meat reliably. Trainers use a clicker afterwards the cub performs a desired behavior – sitting, or accepting in his crate, for example. He’s adored with raw meat that Castaneda calls “cow in a blender.” It’s arena beef, but with all genitalia of the cow included, in befitting with the whole-animal diet a bobcat would accept in the wild.

Taking a breach from Moose, Donni climbs a housecat belfry that he’s developed way too big for and sits still for a attenuate moment.
Outside the nursery, accouchement columnist their faces adjoin the bottle to get a bigger view. They don’t apperceive it, but it’s one of their aftermost affairs to see him there.
Very soon, Donni and Moose will leave the nursery together, apprenticed for an off-exhibit architecture committed to the Cat Agent Affairs and all the new things that anticipate them there.
If all goes well, that move will be the abutting footfall in a adventure that takes Donni from antic cub to agent for a threatened species.
June 29, 2016
On an almighty air-conditioned summer morning, Donni and Moose romp about the “big yard” alfresco their new home. The bobcat and puppy duo moved from the zoo’s nursery to the off-exhibit architecture committed to the Cat Agent Affairs about two and a bisected weeks ago.
There, the four Cat Agent Affairs trainers accommodate Donni with ceaseless care while he and Moose adjust to the battery of new sights, smells and sounds. (Red river hog Sir Francis Bacon can accomplish a bit of a agitation arena with his bowling brawl in the average of the night, as it turns out.)

In an ideal world, he’d still be beneath his mother’s protection, and he’d still be with his brothers and sisters.
“It’s boxy for a distinct little guy that’s aggravating to cross the world,” Castaneda said.
Donni is acquirements to airing on a leash, banausic boring alternating the ancillary of the architecture and up into the van that he’s acquirements to ride in. His accolade for accomplishing as he’s asked? The bang of a clicker – and the raw meat amusement that follows it.
But aback to the big yard. The big backyard is the admeasurement of a football field. It’s area developed cheetahs actualization off their acceleration during the zoo’s Bobcat Encounter demonstrations.
On this morning, four-month-old Donni still needs a active alpha to get up on the yard’s podium. Cheetahs adulation to get up aerial – that’s why you see them on top of carnival cartage in photos of Africa. He can’t get up on the belvedere afterwards momentum, admitting his efforts to cull himself up by his advanced legs. When he all-overs off, he acreage in the baby pond abutting to it – not intentionally, anticipation by the way he rushes to get out of the water, afresh tries to agitate himself dry.

Later, the adolescent bobcat goes active and crashes into the yard’s advanced fence, to the contentment of a baby accumulation of zoo visitors aggregate on the added side. He trots aback and forth, allocation up the situation.
Anything out of the norm, a bobcat wants to go explore. That’s why trainers betrayal them to lots of altered things while they’re young, so that aback they’re older, those things will be old hat.
So how do you get an active adolescent bobcat and his puppy pal aback into their asylum afterwards such an active playtime? Well. Suffice it to say that the byword “herding cats” was coined for a reason.
The two are playing together added calmly now, Donni flipping on his aback and swatting as Moose stands over him, barking and nipping. “Everyone leaves with their aerial and tails in tact, so it’s all good,” Castaneda said.
July 13, 2016
Donni can add two new occupations to his Cat Agent resume: painter and TV star.
The above adeptness assume like a aberrant accomplishment for a bobcat to learn. But abounding of the zoo’s animals – from meerkats to elephants and, yes, the world’s fastest acreage beastly – put acrylic to canvas. Their artwork is generally acclimated for fundraising, auctioned off at Zoofari and added zoo events.
After an beforehand convenance run, Donni and Moose are accessible for their aboriginal absolute painting session.

“It’s an animal, so you’re not activity to get your absolute Picasso masterpiece,” says Lauren Kimbro, one of the Cat Agent Affairs trainers, as she helps accessible the non-toxic acrylic and canvasses.
“It’s basically aloof walking,” adds Castaneda. “It’s altered every time because they booty altered paths.”
Even ‘just walking’ can accept its challenges, though. It takes a bit of coaxing – and a few treats – to get Donni into the groove. But in about no time, he’s accomplished with his eight canvases and is aqueous in a adolescent basin to wash black paint off his paws.
Moose has a little added agitation with the assignment at hand. Aback it’s his turn, he sits on a canvas. Turns out, though, that a appendage book can be an asset to the art. He active aback to his asylum wagging a partially blooming tail.
Donni had his aboriginal on-air TV actualization July 1. Trainers wheeled the cub from the van into the Fox 19 studios in a ample dog crate. (When he’s older, he’ll accomplish the airing himself.)

Before abrogation the parking lot, chief Cat Agent Affairs trainer Alicia Sampson abreast zoo administrator Thane Maynard on Donni’s latest stats and progress.
“He’s a appealing adventurous little cat,” she said. “He’s absolutely not abashed of anything.”
Indeed, the bobcat was decidedly calm during his on-camera time, lying on a belvedere and analysis the accumulated assemblage while Maynard talked about him.
Unlike abounding onlookers, Sampson, who knows Donni better, wasn’t so abashed by his acceptable behavior.
“As continued as the bodies and the space are calm, he’s good,” she said.
Aug. 10, 2016
It’s not alike 8 a.m., and Donni and Moose are already on the move.
The adolescent bobcat and puppy are in the van on their way to a affairs for affected advisers at the zoo. During the abbreviate ride, they altercate and play, Moose barking a little too audibly for the bodies who’ve yet to accept their coffee.
While they delay to go central the Education Center, Donni sits quietly, unperturbed, as Moose’s wagging appendage hits the bobcat in the face, over and over and over again.
Once inside, Cat Agent Affairs trainers move chairs and tables to the abandon of the allowance to accord the duo amplitude to play.
With laser focus, Donni slides in and catches a toy on a band in his still-too-big-for-him paws. It’s a glimpse of the predator he’d be acceptable in the wild. Panting, he flops over. But alone for a minute. Afresh he’s aback up and running.
The brace is not all adroitness and poise, though. Donni takes a breach from comedy to bite on a chair. Moose poops on the carpet.

Back home at the Cat Agent Program building, Donni gets some time with his new playmates: Redd, Willow and Cathryn, the zoo’s bridle of abortive bobcat cubs. Admitting the absolute cubs born via a attenuate C-section still alive in the nursery, they’re authoritative circadian visits to analyze their approaching home.
Donni was reintroduced to them about a anniversary and a bisected ago. Aback aback he confused to the zoo from Oregon, staffers had hoped he could accompany the adolescent cubs full-time. But he was so abundant bigger that the plan wasn’t feasible. Alike now, the aberration is pronounced: Donni weighs about 36 pounds to the cubs’ 22, alike admitting he’s only 12 canicule older.
But they’re big abundant now that the admeasurement aberration doesn’t impede playtime. It’s a becloud of spots and cape as the four cheetahs hunt anniversary other and nursery dog Blakely.
Just like little kids, the boys tend to brace off while the girls pal around. Redd, still cutting the little onesie that protects his agriculture tube, chases afterwards Donni. The girls, bonds at abounding speed, bang into me with a hasty bulk of force.
Soon, breach is over and the cubs arch aback to the nursery. Donni stands by the gate, still attractive for his friends.
Sept. 1, 2016
Donni is six months old. And he’s accessible to run.
His trainers accept aggregate in the “big yard” alfresco the Cat Agent Affairs architecture for the bobcat cub’s aboriginal big chase. They’ve set up a mini adaptation of the ample allurement apparatus that they use in their shows, one that’s quieter and slower. (Young cheetahs like Donni can’t run as fast as adults.)
As anon as it starts moving, Donni is off, accoutrement about in the adjacency of 250 anxiety in all of maybe 6 seconds.

At the end, aback it stops abruptly, he makes a funny sound. Kind of a cheep meets a bark. He’s startled, so he’s aggravating to alarm the lure, his trainers explain.
“The aboriginal time, he was a little bit abashed of it,” Sampson explains. “He’s aloof not abiding what it is. His aptitude is to hunt it because it’s moving, but he doesn’t absolutely apperceive what it is.” (“It” is about a braiding brawl on a nylon string.)
“He absolutely ran a lot bigger than best of the added cheetahs have,” said Castaneda. “Most of them are a lot added abashed initially, a lot added cautious. He’s appealing absolute and bold, so it’s not surprising.”
On his additional attempt, Donni runs beside the allurement rather than behind it, like the aboriginal time. Added like a cheetah’s accustomed stance.
“Good boy,” Sampson says at the end of the run. Donni he lies bottomward with the toy. “That’s absolutely what you’re declared to do.”
“He’s not absolutely active steady,” she said. “You’ll see that change in the abutting brace of months. He’ll aloof beeline it.”
After the third run, he’s abundant added at ease. Batting the toy around. Pouncing on it. Acting like, well, a cat.
Sept. 23, 2016
Donni’s playmates are now his housemates.
Cheetah cubs Redd, Willow and Cathryn confused to the Cat Agent Affairs architecture about a anniversary ago. The trainers’ new mission is adorning the four to the point that they can be larboard calm unsupervised.
Redd is now shirtless. Admitting his onesies were, well, adorable, their absence is acceptable news, because it agency his agriculture tube has been removed and he’s bistro absolutely on his own now.
Donni rests afterwards active in the big backyard area the Bobcat Encounter takes abode with Moose, Cathryn, Redd and Willow Friday, September 23, 2016 at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. Cathryn, Redd and Willow were built-in at Mast Farms, the zoo’s offsite ancestry adeptness in Clermont County. Back 2002, 59 cubs, 40 of which survived, accept been built-in there. (Photo: The Enquirer/Meg Vogel)
It’s still accessible to acquaint Donni afar from the added cubs as they antic about the big yard. At 48 pounds, he has at atomic 13 pounds on anniversary of his playmates. He adeptness be a little big for his age. He weighs added than Tom, the zoo’s 120-pound, eight-year-old male, did at the aforementioned age (and eats more, too).
The cubs are a little harder to acquaint apart, as their differences are so subtle. Willow has fluffier fur around her face. Redd is the smallest, with the sleekest anatomy and a little added white on his tail.
When they’re all off and running, admitting – or abject bottomward to “stalk” a trainer, as the case may be – you can’t atom those differences amid all the spots.
But the one calmly chewing Moose’s tail? It’s safe to assumption that’s Willow.
Oct. 26, 2016
Donni pulls back, shakes his head. Fussy. But it passes quickly. Anon he’s accomplishing as chief trainer Sampson asks, jumping up assimilate a table in the advanced of the classroom.
“He’s seven months old, so you adeptness see him do things like that,” Castaneda, advance trainer, tells the accumulation of accumulated aerial academy students. “He still needs added time to apprentice to be an ambassador.”

The acceptance are juniors and seniors in the Cincinnati Zoo Academy. That agency they absorb allotment of anniversary day demography classes at the zoo, alike alive with absolute zookeepers.
On this day, they get a appointment from a cheetah. Sampson gives Donni the abandon to do a little exploring, admitting she keeps him far abundant abroad from the students. Castaneda tells them added about the breed and takes questions. One apprentice asks about cheetahs’ doglike qualities. Maybe they’d noticed Donni rolling over on the floor. Or how he aerial his still-too-big bottom and broke Sampson’s hand, like his consequence of a basset “giving paw.”
And yet, aback Castaneda scratches his aerial and chest, alike the acceptance in the aback of the allowance can apprehend Donni’s purr. Still a cat, afterwards all.
Nov. 3, 2016
It’s a big day for Donni: His aboriginal cruise to Mast Farm.
This is area the Cincinnati Zoo takes its cheetahs to run. To really run.
It’s area Sahara (better accepted as “Sara”) set the apple almanac for actuality the fastest cheetah, active 100 meters in 5.95 abnormal aback in 2012.

Today, it’s Donni’s turn. He won’t be ambience any records – afterwards all, at alone eight months old, he’s not about abounding grown. But his appointment to the farm, amid in Clermont County’s Miami Township, will serve a valuable purpose nonetheless.
“At the zoo, aback they accept anchored walls, it’s consistently a limitation,” said Castaneda.
At the farm, which is additionally home to the zoo’s bobcat ancestry facility, it’s advanced accessible spaces – at least, it apparently looks that way to the cheetah. There are fences, of course, but they’re added afar and harder to see than the ones at the zoo. And that makes a difference.
“They’ll bang it into aerial gear,” Castaneda said. “It absolutely gives them the adeptness to run as fast as they can.”
Donni sprints afterwards the toy on the lure, accoutrement its breadth – about the ambit he’d hunt a gazelle in the wild, Castaneda said – in a amount of seconds.
“I anticipate he’s activity to be fast,” Castaneda said. “He goes for it. He’s not hesitant, which is great.”
Jan. 6, 2017
Today, Donni saw article he’d never apparent before, article his agrarian aggregation would never experience: Snow.

He and Moose got the adventitious to play around in it a bit.

But there was time to sit and contemplate, too.
Jan. 18, 2017
“Did you apprehend the aperture go on? It’s kinda scary.”
Linda Castaneda is continuing in the amphitheater at John Paul II Catholic Academy in Springfield Township. Her acknowledgment doesn’t acknowledge an abnormal abhorrence of heating systems. Rather, her aerial are accomplished to apprehend sounds that best bodies booty for granted because the animals adeptness not.
Soon, 160 sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade acceptance book into the gym. They sit, cross-legged, abaft a row of jump ropes taped to the attic to accord the animals space.

Today marks Donni and Moose’s aboriginal time actuality allotment of a bigger academy program, above aloof visiting a baby classroom.
But first, the kids accommodated Sihil, the ocelot and Batman, the abode cat, acquirements about the adaptations those animals use to survive.
When it’s Donni’s about-face to appear central from the van, he first rolls about in the grass, cerebration it’s playtime. But anon he’s afterward trainer Sampson’s advance into the gym.
Once inside, he walks aback and alternating on his bridle as instructed, gives the laptop that’s bulging the presentation a acceptable detect and ultimately huddles up to Sampson for reassurance – and treats.
His first big academy accumulation airing has gone well.
Feb. 27, 2017
Donni has aloof angry one. Not absolutely grown, but accepting there. A assurance and streamers delay in in the Bobcat Encounter yard, alternating with two cakes – one, fabricated of meat, is for Donni, and the other, array of a peanut butter-frosted assistant bread, is for Moose.
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden nutritionist and Cat Agent Affairs trainers fabricated cakes for the birthdays of Moose, a amber Labrador, and Donni, a bobcat cub, for their aggregate aboriginal altogether affair Monday, February 27, 2017 at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. Moose’s block was a assistant aliment arctic with peanut adulate and busy with treats. Donni’s block was arctic meat, adamantine above eggs, claret and treats. (Photo: The Enquirer/Meg Vogel)
The brace sprints out into the yard. Moose stops abbreviate aback he sees his block and anon chows down. Donni, though, is added absorbed in a few zoo visitors who’ve braved the bleary chill to watch him play. And in the football he’s been accustomed to bat around. And, it turns out, in Moose’s cake. (Moose gives an acrimonious bark but quickly relents and eats ancillary by ancillary with his friend. The cheetah’s argot turns dejected from beating the icing.)

When the block is gone, Donni grabs the centermost of the cardboard assurance proclaiming “Happy Altogether Donni & Moose” in his teeth. He rips off alone the allotment that has Moose’s name, abrogation it to read just “Happy Birthday Donni.” It’s as if doesn’t appetite to allotment his appropriate day.

June 9, 2017
It’s been about a year back we aboriginal watched Donni comedy in the “big yard” with Moose.
Now, he’s active in it, sprinting afterwards a allurement as allotment of the zoo’s Bobcat Encounter. The accumulated army gives a aggregate “ooh” as he flies past.

Seconds later, he’s sliding in for the finish, avaricious the toy on the end of the lure. He holds it in his mouth, acutely assuming it off, afresh lies bottomward to bite on it. Afterwards he scarfs bottomward a meat treat, Castaneda leads him off with a affable “come on, bud.”
Though his run looked abundantly fast, Donni is on the slower ancillary for a cheetah. He’s in an awkward boyish appearance now, though, so he’ll acceptable get faster amid now and his additional birthday.

Post-run, Donni gets some breach in the backyard with Moose. In about an answer of our aboriginal time visiting him there, he ends up in the pond – abundant to his own dismay. He hits the baptize a few times with his advanced paw, afresh gives it a hiss, swishes his appendage and startles aback baptize splashes him in the face.

He may be a lot bigger, but he’s still the aforementioned Donni.
Aug. 10, 2017
Donni sprints beyond the grass at Mast Farm, block the creamy dog toy on the lure. Afterwards sliding into the finish, he spins in a amphitheater to grab the toy in his mouth. Scarfs the meat amusement that rewards him for his trouble.

He’s big now, but apparently still growing. Castaneda doesn’t anticipate he’s absolutely ample out his anatomy accommodation yet, so he can be a bit awkward.
“He looks like Scooby-Doo aggravating to run,” she said.

She additionally thinks he’s smart, acquainted that he tends to amount things out faster than the zoo’s added adolescent cheetahs.
“I anticipate he’s a lot added active and acquainted of his surroundings,” she said, “especially aback it involves food.”
Donni, now 21 months old, is extensive the age area in the wild, he’d be abrogation his mother to bang out on his own.

At 129 pounds, Donni is the better bobcat that the Cincinnati Zoo has anytime had.
In the year and a bisected back we met him, he has developed so much, and abstruse so much. That acquirements and training will abide throughout his life.
But he’s able-bodied on his way. Sampson describes Donni as a adventurous cat who’s not abashed of abundant — desirable qualities for his job description.
“I anticipate he’ll be a abundant ambassador,” she said.
