TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Tulsa Zoo is sharing some great news.

They're welcoming a new feline, a Malaysian tiger named Jin.  Jin moved to Tulsa from the San Diego Zoo to mate with Gahara, our other Malaysian tiger.

If they hit it off, the tiger twosome could see cubs after about 100 days of pregnancy.

The zoo is saying goodbye to some other big cats.

Snow leopard cub Ateri and African Lion cub Thabo are heading to the Memphis Zoo early next month for mating. Another snow leopard cub, Henry James, is heading to a zoo in Canada.
