TACOMA, Washington -

We got an exclusive look at a Tulsa tiger cub's a new home Thursday.

Rejected by his mother at birth, Berani is headed west to meet his new family.

He'll join another abandoned cub in Washington to learn how to be a tiger.

Thanks to a special donor, Berani was able to fly to Tacoma on a private jet Wednesday.

Tulsa Zoo veterinarian Jen Kilburn accompanied the six-week-old cub on the three-and-a-half hour flight.

"He slept most of the way. He had his stuffed animal toy that he slept on and he was very quiet," Kilburn said. "He woke up a little closer to landing, which was to be expected with all the change in pressure and stuff. But he seemed really relaxed and very happy on the flight."

News On 6 Anchor LeAnne Taylor was there as Berani met his new brother.

Tag along, as we follow "A Cub's Journey" Friday on Six in the Morning.
