Meet Lambert! Lambert is a lion who was rescued by In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue And Education Center after the family who owned him in West Texas decided to give him up.
“They purchased him as a pet for their children, but soon realized that Lambert was getting to be too much for them. They contacted us, and chose to donate him to In-Sync Exotics,” Vicky Keahey, In-Sync Exotics founder, wrote on Facebook.

In-Sync Exotics is located in Texas and is dedicated to the rescue of neglected, abused and unwanted exotic felines. They have tigers, cougars, lions, leopards and other big cats that can’t be reintroduced into the wild. They come from all kinds of places – inhumane breeding facilities, entertainment facilities, closed exotic animal sanctuaries, and from private owners who could no longer care for them.
“We are very grateful that they made the decision to place Lambert in a home where he can live with others of his kind, and receive the care that a lion needs,” Vicky said at the time they saved Lambert.

He was only a cub when they picked him up back in 2014. He was raised in a house for his first few months of life so was a little bit overwhelmed by the sounds of all the other rescue cats at In-Sync at first.
They soon discovered that blankets would comfort him when he was distressed.
Lambert loves his blankies!

He doesn’t only like to sleep with blankets, he likes to play with them too. “Little Lambert really doesn’t like the sound of all the rain, so Vicky tossed him a fresh blanky to play with, he’s now a very happy little boy!”
Lambert likes to lounge, like any cat. Here he strikes a funny pose.

He tucks himself in at night. “Lambert has a den, but he prefers making a little cuddle-corner in his inside area every night…”
It's going to be COOL tonight, stay warm everyone! Lambert has a den, but he prefers making a little cuddle-corner in his inside area every night…
Even as he was growing bigger, he still loves blankies.
Blankie fort FAIL….guess I'll just sleep ON my blankie! ("They all stand around taking pictures of me….you would…
He’ll wrap himself up in one, all “burrito” like.
Your Lambert "fix" for the day!

Lambert doesn’t lounge around the whole day. He likes to play with all kinds of things including a skateboard…yes skateboard!
But when it’s time for a nap, Lambert looks forward to rolling himself up in a cozy blanket. Mama Vicky shared this cute video of the lion covering himself up.
With the blanket on him, he patiently waits for Vicky to make her rounds and wish him a goodnight.
G'night sweetheart…….Lambert waits patiently for Mama Vicky to make her rounds and tell him "night-night!"
G’Night sweet Lambert!
I have had some comments wondering if Lambert still slept with his blankie…….check it out! G'night sweet Lambert!
Share this sweet lion with your friends and family.
