Ten-week-old Emmett's had a rough life so far, being treated for pneumonia. Upon transfer to Columbus Zoo, he picked out Cullen, a seven-week-old puppy, who's expected to help the little big cat learn to be more confident.

Both are named after a character from vampire book and movie series Twilight - Emmett Cullen.
