Two tiger cubs found near the Gaston and Cleveland county line in January will arrive Tuesday at their new home in Pittsboro, a 55-acre preserve operated by the nonprofit Carnivore Preservation Trust.

Rajah, a male, and Kaela, a female, will join a menagerie of more than 100 catlike creatures in residence at the preserve. Many, like the 9-month-old tigers, came to the trust after they were abandoned by people who had kept them as pets.The big cats, brother and sister, spent several months at the N.C. Zoo after their January capture by authorities. They can now spend the rest of their lives in the Pittsboro sanctuary, dining on dead chickens.
