Mundi 2015

NAME: Mundi

GENDER: Female

AGE: (2017) 4 years

WEIGHT: (2014) 28.8Kg (2015) 37.6Kg (2016) 35.2Kg

ORIGIN: Swakopmund

COMPANIONS IN ENCLOSURE: Swakop and Dune

REASON FOR CAPTIVITY: To be released. Mundi, Swakop and Dune - will remain in AfriCat's care until space opens in the Okonjima Nature Reserve for their rehabilitation to start.

 

Mundi is one of our cheetahs at AfriCat's Rehabilitation Centre.

Mundi and her brother Swakop came to AfriCat when they were about 6 - 7 months old. At the end of November 2013 Dr. H. Winterbach and Dr. D. Rodenwoldt from Swakopmund Veterinary Clinic, received a phone call about two cheetah cubs that were found near the salt works on the outskirts of Swakopmund. Employees had found them on their way home from work.

When the vet team arrived, both cubs were darted instantly. Weakened from severe dehydration and malnourishment they didn't even put up a fight. AfriCat was contacted for help and on the Friday we sent a team to Swakopmund to check on the cats. Their age was estimated between 6 and 7 months, both weighing only around 11 kilogram. After 24 hours of observations they were back on their feet, eating and drinking on their own.

Three days later the cheetah siblings were collected by Team AfriCat and brought back to Okonjima where they were released into a small hold-over enclosure for the first few days for close-up monitoring. After a week the cats were relocated into a larger camp with natural vegetation providing a safe and stress-free environment.

Swakop and Mundi - who evidently were named after their origin - have grown into two beautiful cats, who enjoy each other’s company the most. In July 2015 Dune, who was also found orphaned in the Namib Desert in May 2015, was placed together with Swakop and Mundi after she lost her companion Nyx. Not bonding quite yet, we are hoping to release our three desert cheetahs into the 20 000 ha Okonjima Nature Reserve as soon as possible.
