Cat Care

Big Cat Care   Big Cat Rescue has evolved since its inception in 1992. By 1997 we had seen enough of the abuse and abandonment caused by the pet trade that we had previously engaged in to know that there was no reason to breed exotic animals for lives in cages. As a result we increased our efforts through spaying, neutering and cage building to ensure that we would no longer be a part of the problem. As we have continued to learn about the causes of so much suffering we have become active in stopping the exotic pet trade through education Read More

Acquisitions

Big Cat Rescue’s Animal Acquisition Policy Our board asks the following list of questions when considering a rescue situation: • Is it a cat? • Has this cat been with us before? • Are we financially able and staff stable enough to take on this commitment? • Will the owner surrender the permits and sign a contract not to own or use another exotic cat? • Is this acquisition a governmental seizure? • What are the legal ramifications? • Is ownership un-contested? • Is transport possible?  (we can only receive Read More

Now at Big Cat Rescue March 18 2014

The REAL Money is in Bequests   If you are operating an animal rescue shelter or sanctuary then you know that the real money is in bequests. What is harder to determine is how to receive bequests. In part it is a numbers game and the more people who know about your wonderful work then the greater the chances that you will be remembered in their wills, but there is a way to maximize your potential for being the beneficiary of an estate:   Make a Difference   The shelter or sanctuary has probably figured out that Read More

Restraint

RESTRAINT You will find many times when it is necessary to pick up and restrain an exotic cat, and hopefully, you will have started acclimating the cat to this behavior early in life. If the cat is small and can be picked up from behind, it is better than taking on the cat face to face. With a tame cat, you can place one hand around the middle of his body, then reach your fingers up from under the chest to cross and hold the front paws. This is critical if he has claws and just cuts down on the squirming if he does not. Keep your index finger between Read More

Pills

Giving an Exotic Cat a Pill   http://youtu.be/OmvlFPXwSnw   Giving a cat a pill can be a harrowing experience for both you and the cat. Exotic cats are worse because they are not as trusting, have a keener sense of smell and are more powerful. As with any aspect of exotic cat ownership, you must rely on your higher intelligence rather than brute force if you are to succeed. While it may be physically possible for you and all of your closest friends to tackle the cat and force a pill down his throat, this sort of force destroys Read More

Cages

http://youtu.be/KrF0rRL5DHA   Big Cat Caging No big cat belongs in a cage, but until we have better laws to protect exotic cats from being bred for lives of captivity and deprivation, we need to give them as much space and privacy as possible.  In their wild their territories would measure in square miles, not square feet, so even at its best a cage is nothing more than a jail cell. Since all exotic cats, no matter how early they are neutered or spayed, spray bucket loads of urine all day you will want to provide an outdoor Read More
