Rescued Baby Lion Can’t Sleep Without A Blanket Even Though He’s All Grown Up

When Lambert’s rescuer Vicky Keahey first saw him, he looked more like a puppy dog than a mighty lion

Illegally purchased by a family who didn’t want him anymore, he desperately needed help.

“We had heard from the previous owners that he slept in the bed with the grandfather,” said Keahey

“So I got him a blanket.  He curled up on that blanket and he went right to sleep”

“Ever since then, I always give him a blanket” Keahey also had to teach Lambert how to like and eat raw meat, something he had never been exposed to before arriving at the rescue.

“With me though, he’s my baby. He’s my child”

We are getting a LOT of rain today! Some of the tigers seem to enjoy playing in it, but the lions primarily stay tucked in their cozy dens during wet weather. Little Lambert really doesn't like the sound of all the rain, so Vicky tossed him a fresh blanky to play with, he's now a very happy little boy!
