Nip and her sister Savanna and her two brothers, Tuc and Scamp were found on the perimeter fenceline of the Okonjima Nature Reserve (2010). They were observed for a few days until it was obvious there was no mother around and attempts were made to catch them. They were around three months old when they came to AfriCat.
