Rob Dicely, of the Wild Cat Education and Conservation Fund in Sonoma County, brought this African cheetah and three other wild cats to the Sequoias retirement community in Portola Valley on Friday, June 17.

The other cats: a Canadian lynx, a rare Geoffroy's cat, and a domestic mountain lion.

He was there with Barbara Dicely, his wife and the founder of the wild feline sanctuary.

The couple care for about 20 wild cats, all born in captivity. None of them get along well with each other, Ms. Dicely said.
