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.

Remember, YOUR pets can get dehydrated. They depend on YOU to keep them hydrated and cool so why not make it fun? (Video from Cole & Marmalade ) ... See MoreSee Less

Summer's here! … We all know cats love to be warm and they can always be found laying in the sunspot on the floor in your home … BUT extended or extreme heat...

Barbara PriestleyThat's a good idea but despite my cats thick fur he will often sit up on the window sill with the sun warming his fur even more so I don't think the hot weather bothers him and there's always a bowl of fresh water at hand for him3 hours ago   ·  1

Karel KocmanTo je ale práce, lepší je jim naházet granule a je pokoj. Navíc je to zdravé, jak se nám asi 30 let snaží vnuknout výrobci, a my jim to žereme. Ale na blbosti se vždy vydělávalo, že? Divím se, že vůbec nějaké kočky (i psy) vůbec přežili z dob, kdy granule nebyly :) :) :).2 hours ago
