As 103.5 KISS FM's resident crazy cat person, I feel like it's my duty to let you know...Zoo Boise's tiger has returned.

I haven't been to Zoo Boise in years-- probably 15 of them actually. I had no idea that there was a tiger just miles from my house but now I know and it might be time to go visit.

A fan favorite at Zoo boise, Katarina the Tiger has been off-site since October of 2017 for surgery. She is 14-years old and was having an issue with her hind legs. Zoo Boise officials say that it was a herniated disc that was effecting her hind legs so surgery was in order to remove anything that was compressing her spinal cord.

She's back at the Zoo, but may be in her den healing up and not always visible to visitors.
