It's only been a few short months since Guero arrived, but the regal big cat has already begun to settle in at his sprawling new home - seeming to relish in the companionship of the sanctuary's other animal residents. Amazingly, despite the cruelty he was made to endure, Guero's heart is still full of love.
The lion has struck up a sweet little friendship with the most unlikely critter - a squirrel with whom he is happy to share his food.
"Every day Güero loves to get a little whipping cream after he finishes his meat, and the squirrel has decided he likes the whipping cream just as much!" the sanctuary wrote on Facebook. "It's been a scene we see repeated more and more often, and we wanted to share the 'sweet' bond they have with you!"
