    I am very sad but I know that China Doll and Mr. E had the best in the world the years they were at BCR. Nothing will change that and I am proud that going to BCR the times I did helped these cats and others. I love BCR and every time we travel to Tampa from the Northeast we go to BCR. My support to all through this hard time just know that you have made changes in many lives. Cat and human alike.

    So sorry for your loss…the only comfort is the memories of how much she was loved by so many including yourself…I am sure she had a good life. Thanks for taking care of her for so long, bless your heart.

    I feel such sadness at the loss of China Doll. She was what sparked my interest in Big Cat Rescue. I can only thank her for bringing me to BCR and comfort those who cared for her with the thought of how she stood as an ambassador for all the cats you work so tirelessly for each and everyday. She runs free now, without pain or fear in a place where no one can do her harm. She is with Love.

    I am devastated by the loss of our beautiful China Doll. She was truly one of a kind. I am so sad for Shere Khan. He will be lost without her.

    The branded search engine is easy to use, and I will be using your amazon link in the near future.

    All the big cats have a wonderful life at BCR, but it is always very sad to see one pass on.

    I'm HEARTBROKEN to hear about China Doll and Mr. E., and now that Shere Khan is so frail, I'm afraid he may soon follow his beloved across the Rainbow Bridge. This is has been a most terrible year for BCR; a lot of very painful losses this year and they keep coming. I know that many of the cats are older at BCR and our treasured friends don't live forever. But this is HARD, SO HARD. My most sincere and heartfelt condolences to all there.

    So sorry to hear about China Doll and Shere Khan will be heart broken just like one of my cats was after her BFF of 16 years passed away from cancer.

    I am shocked and heartbroken over the loss of China Doll. My husband and I went on the keeper tour in March. Our guide Becky took the two of us out to see Khan and China after the tour was over. I am a Skipaholic and follow what is going on at the sanctuary constantly. I knew Khan had not been doing good and inquired. She took a golf cart and we went to see them. I am disabled and walk with a cane so this was an easier way to get there. China Doll was fine and was the one to draw Shere Khan out into the open from their jungle cat-a-tat. I am so beyond grateful to Becky for giving me a chance to see them. I never would have expected it would be the last time I saw sweet China Doll. I am so sorry for all of you at BCR. I feel an attachment to these beautiful cats and I am only a visitor. I cry every time you lose one. I can't imagine what you are going through. :'(

    As soon as I got a prompt about Amazon Smile, I picked you guys, and that happened mere days before I made a HUGE order on Amazon, so you guys are getting a slice of that. I’m glad that my frequent Amazon habit is going to help you guys so much.

    SO SAD to hear about China Doll, she was probably my favorite, she had such distinctive face markings and was always one I recognized immediately. Poor Shere Khan must be so sad without his friend. :-/

    I’ll have to redouble my efforts to make it down to Tampa before more of my favorites are gone.

    Since I have been to BCR several times, I feel all the cats I have visited all those times are very special to me. Every time one passes away, I cannot explain how sad it makes me. It's always hard to lose a wonderful animal, no matter what species they are.
