The Most Important Thing YOU Can Do to Save Big Cats

Most-ImportantThis bill called the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act is the most important piece of legislation to ever be introduced to protect lions, tigers and other exotic wild cats from being kept as pets and in miserable roadside zoos. It ended the 113th Congressional session with more than 120 co sponsors.  Now we are working to re introduce the bill in early 2015.

Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats, is a leading advocate in ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction.  We are home to about 80 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougarsservals and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts.

Big Cat RescueShe wasn't responding well, so today we did Xrays again, more blood work and are doubling her sub q fluids to twice a day. She still won't eat, without being force fed from a syringe. She was calm enough that we were able to do the diagnostics today without further sedation. She peed a lot and is passing some gas, so we are cautiously optimistic. You can check in on her at www.ustream.tv/channel/bigcathospital1 hour ago   ·  11

Mary Lou MaxwellThe audio was hard to hear on this but the surgery was facinating. Now did I hear you say that you were also giving her a ovo-hysterectomy since you were in her abdomen and she was under anesthesia? This makes a lot of sense to do to try to avoid some issues down the line. I think I remember one of your tigers had pyometra and I was surprised to hear that most of your cats were not neutered or spayed as soon as they got to your facility. I did get a great response that told me that you try to not anesthetize them unnecessarily, and that some of the males just have a vasectomy. I always learn so much from your videos you all do such a great job.58 minutes ago
