She was born at the Zoo’s regional cheetah breeding facility in Clermont County on June 22, but she had to be moved to the Zoo’s Nursery after her mother, Lucy, (this is her first litter) could not provide adequate care. In an effort to get the cub back up to speed, Zoo Nursery keepers are bottle feeding the cub six times a day, every 2.5 hours
