No matter where you are, you always feel safe and comforted in blanket. Everyone feel comfort in a childhood blanket. Even the biggest and scariest of animals need some love and can turn into the sweetest creatures when taken back to younger days through the memory of a stuffed toy. A lion who never lost the love he has for his blanket that he first got as a beginner. Similarly many people have their favorite blanket or stuffed animal that they’ve had since they were little, maybe even since the day they were born Rescued Lion Sleeps With Blanket Every Night.

Lambert was brought to his new enclosure, he seemed anxious.

Vicky remembered being told that Lambert liked to sleep in bed with the grandfather.




In June 2014, In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Educational Center in Texas received a phone call. Vicky Keahey, their founder, went to a home where she found an illegally purchased lion cub named Lambert.

When Vicky met the cub, she noticed how he acted more like a dog, lazing about in the sunlight in the yard.




A father had bought Lambert for his two- and three-year-old children after seeing The Lion King. The children said they wanted a “Simba” so their father got them one.

After a short while, they decided not to keep the lion any more, so the three-month-old cub was looking for a new home already.

As Lambert has grown up, he has learned to love many other things. He can skateboard like a pro, for one thing.

He used to play with plastic supply tubs as a cub and this transitioned into skateboarding, “He would put his feet in it and scoot it along the ground like he was skateboarding. So one of the volunteers at the rescue built him an actual skateboard. Sure enough he put both of his feet on it and started skating around on it.”

 “I started thinking… ‘Okay, he’s used to being in a house, he’s used to sleeping in the bed with grandpa.’ So I got him a blanket, she said.

Vicky says she “went into the enclosure and put the blanket in one of the corners… He curled up on that blanket and he went right to sleep. Ever since then, I always give him a blanket.”


He was showered with gifts on his second birthday, which was March 22, 2016.

He received two trash cans to destroy, a wad of paper to shred, whipped cream, and a blanket. But don’t be fooled by his playfulness, Lambert still has quite the attitude.



Lambert has stolen the hearts of those around him, and his love for his blanket makes him so much cuter.

Now two years old, that blanket he had as a cub is still something he holds close – literally. Because Lambert was born and raised in captivity, he will never be released into the wild.

Vicky had to teach him how to like and eat raw meat, something he never had before coming to the center.


“If he likes you, you know it and if he doesn’t like you, you know it.”

“With me though, he’s my baby. He’s my child.”
