an air of importance.

|Charger came into this world tail first as a breech birth.
And if pulling a baby tiger from an un-sedated tigress wasn't remarkable
enough, his first cries made all the cats in the compound sit up and take
notice. Charger was named after the famous Indian tiger who would
charge elephants and their riders for coming onto his territory. Our
little Charger had all of those facets, and spent the first months of his
life displaying all the teeth and claws his legendary namesake possessed.
It took meeting bigger tigers to give Charger a moment's pause, and he
became a very loving cat. And as he grew, his ruff became the stuff of
legend--regally framing his face and adding beauty to his predatory
The wind was whipping, the birds were calling, and the trees bowed as
Charger was being born. It was as if the world around us was
recognizing the presence of a new predator.
