During a recent trip to Africa, Eric and Faye happened to visit the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre which focuses on the conservation of rare, vulnerable or endangered animals.

Sharing a lifetime love of animals and the wild, it didn’t take long to lose their hearts to the new king cheetah cubs that were frolicking with their mother. The cubs were bred and born at the Hoedspruit Centre, and will be released to the wild with captive-bred establishment when they are ready.

Eric and Faye were greatly moved and inspired by this important work being done, and decided to adopt one of the cubs on behalf of the The Ivy Day Spa, naming her Fayliss. We will be sure to post updates on Fayliss and her progress as we receive them.

Here is a photo of Fayliss with her mom. Isn’t she sweet!
