” It was within seconds he had jumped into the water completely up to his neck, and man, was he having a good time?”.
Years of being confined to a small cage on a hard surface were incredibly hazardous to his joints and spine.

The Wildcat Shelter was informed that he and Winona went for a long time without adequate security from the elements. Marcus had no place to run, jump, or climb on any platforms, grass, or hills. His physique would have been strengthened by such activities.
” He patrolled the whole habitat. He smelled everything. He took place every perch he came to be the tiger. He was meant to be.”.
” Marcus was a former pet, and they were breeding him to sell cubs on the internet into roadside zoos and as pets. So to see him find his own tiger abilities simply brought us much more joy than we can imagine that face.”.

” We felt Marcus deserves a truly fantastic reward. And what much better for Marcus than to provide him his biggest tiger popsicle ever before with all his favorite flavors and allow him enjoy it in his yard.”.
” Marcus is among one of the most incredible, mild, happy tigers that we have rescued.”.
