At least it's a big step up from what she had; and she has company.

From one cage to another--only this one actually sounds like a much improved version. Poor animals. Thanks

I'm glad that Sheba is in a place where there are other Tigers, she will not be lonely anymore, its not great because like Natasha says "Its one cage to another", its not like being free, but, better then where she was.
