This is Neelam (Kashmiri Blue Sapphire) MPKTR T-65. about 8, 9 years old. Currently raising her third litter, 4 cubs of about 7, 8 months. Way over in the grass, moving, hiding in the grass, then sneakily crossed under the bridge where one Gypsy was parked! Appeared close by on the other side of the road, growled, jumped. Moved on. We were back later, and suddenly saw her in a clearing! Watched, waited, but no more. Beautiful Neelam!
