Halloween Pumpkin Enrichment
Halloween is near and that means it’s pumpkin time for the big cats! Each year the residents of the sanctuary receive a very special halloween treat – their very own pumpkin to carve how they please! The cats love chomping, clawing, and pouncing on the rolley orange gourds and seem to be attracted to their smell like a domestic cat is to catnip.
You can see for yourself how much the cats love pumpkins by reserving your “spot” on one of the Keeper Tours scheduled in October. In addition to seeing pumpkin enrichment, you will also get to make enrichment toys for the cats and watch as the keepers hand out your toy to the cats as well as observe training sessions.

For safety and quality reasons we do not accept donations of pumpkins from individuals. However, if you would like to sponsor a pumpkin to be given to one of the cats click here http://www.razoo.com/story/Pumpkins We will use your donation to purchase a pumpkin for one of our wild friends!
