Squeaky the house cat gets playful with Gelhak the cheetah. The cheetah, about 2 years old, is a pet at the
Kailua home of Bishop Museum entomologist Lawrence W. Quate and his family. Hawaii’s only privately
owned cheetah was found by Quate in Sudan in 1963, tied to a bed in a mud hut, starving and near death.
Gelhak is now 90 pounds but is gentle and affectionate, with a “funny little squeak,” Quate says. Neighborhood
curiosity and concern have died down, and the only trouble is that family dog Aki sometimes pesters
Gelhak and the cheetah has put on a bit too much weight on its diet of three pounds of raw meat a day.
