We were saddened this week to hear of the passing of Pomi, a 13-year-old clouded leopard dearly loved by my friend Penny. Pomi is special to all of us. She was the mother of Raja, our handsome boy at Point Defiance, who inspired the formation of the Clouded Leopard Project. So without Pomi and Penny, there would likely be no CLP. Our thoughts are with Penny as she misses her sweet girl, and with Pomi's mate Brutie, who is no doubt lonely after losing his long-term mate.
