When China Doll's owners discovered that they were going to have a baby and be dealing with terminal illness in their family, they asked Big Cat Rescue to take their tiger and 8 cougars and we did.
Even people who could afford to give proper care to these cats in large cages, good food and vitamins and love, were not prepared to Read More
Common Name: Leopard Cat
Phylum: Chordata (Vertebrata)
Genus: Felinae (Prionailurus) P.b. euptilura Amur Leopard Cat

USA TROPHY HUNTERS IN AFRICA –
MONSTERS OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION
They call themselves conservationists. But all they conserve are their sordid commercial interests and their sick hunting culture.
Spreading out like a deadly cancer from their HQ at Safari Club International, these insidious weapons of mass destruction infect the vulnerable third world conservation structures in Africa.
The strategy of all Big Business is to seize control of their own regulatory authorities, and Big Hunting is no exception. Using stalking horses Read More

Male Jungle Cat
Rambo came to Big Cat Rescue on 12/5/99. He was bred for the pet trade. His owner had sent him to live with her daughter who died unexpectedly and his primary caregiver became the 12 year old grand daughter. She and her relatives agreed that they did not want to see Rambo exploited as part of a hybridization breeding plan for profit and asked if he could come live at Big Cat Rescue.
He is very talkative and loves to carry on conversations with his keepers.

Male Leopard Cat
DOB 6/30/00 - 5/27/14
We quit breeding cats in 1997 when our Co-Founder disappeared. We spent the next 3 years building better Cat-A-Tats for our 200 residents. We neutered and spayed all of the bobcats, cougars and lynx first.
We had a pair of Amur Leopard Cats who had lived together since 1995. In the Spring of 2000 the Leopard Cats moved into their new 1000 square foot Cat-A-Tat with it’s bushes, trees and underground dens. It must have been very romantic.
Much to our amazement, Shalimar Read More
