Zeus, formerly Deucey, and his mate, Danka, were first rescued with a few other big cats from a roadside attraction called the 2 by 2 Petting Zoo when it was closed down. The enclosure for the lions had no stimulatory toys and was entirely too small for the three lions it held. Their main food source was out-of-date chicken and beef from the local stores as well as processed deli meat and bacon which often they would not eat. Although Danka has crossed to the Rainbow Bridge, Zeus remains a happy and healthy boy who loves laying around and being lazy. He is our most vocal cat, and his deep, beautiful voice can be heard from miles around the sanctuary.
