The Cincinnati Zoo has taken in an African serval cat after the animal was recovered from a wild adventure.

The cat named Amiry was found with cocaine in its system after local animal control officials captured the cat in January from a tree.

Animal experts say the cats should not be treated as normal house cats and that they require more specialized attention.

Amiry escaped from his owner during a traffic stop, when the cat jumped from the car and into a tree.

The cat’s story has gained attention online with social media users dubbing the cat “cocaine cat.”
