Levi

LEVI Male Bobcat DOB 4/30/95 Rescued 6/6/95   Levi came to live at Big Cat Rescue in 1995 along with 10 other Bobcats who were destined to be the next year’s fur coat harvest. Our Co-Founder had stumbled upon a facility in Omaha Nebraska that was raising Bobcats and Canadian Lynx for the purpose of harvesting the cats for their fur.   In order to spare these cats, all of them were purchased from the breeder and brought to live at the sanctuary.   Levi was neutered and now lives with Tiger Lilly.   Levi Read More

Apache

APACHE Male Bobcat Date of Birth: 5/5/95 Rescued  6/6/95   Apache came to Big Cat Rescue on June 6,1995. His previous owner saw him urinate on the carpet and decided that having a bobcat as a pet was not the best idea. Apache shares a large Cat.a.tat with Divinity.   He is one of the shyest in the bunch and is always leery of Keepers that approach his enclosure. He can be quickly won over however with a few tasty treats.   Apache looks very different from the other bobcats he lives with, his coat is Read More

Divinity

  DIVINITY Female Bobcat DOB 5/30/95 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 7/6/95   Divinity was sold from a fur farmer to an individual, along with an unrelated mate, Takoma, when she was only a few days old. She was bottle raised for three weeks before the new owner had a heart attack and could no longer care for the kitten. The woman had seen our video and knew that Big Cat Rescue could love and care for her little ones and we have. Divinity’s color is almost silver and her disposition is pure gold. She was so tiny Read More

Little Feather

  LITTLE FEATHER Female Bobcat DOB 5/3/93 Rescued 5/8/93   Little Feather was five days old when she came to Big Cat Rescue. She had been bred at a game farm that bred bobcats and cougars. Game farms often breed wild animals to be shot as game, or to be exploited in other awful ways.  One of the most common is one that you have probably seen. If you have ever seen bobcat or lynx mothers with their kittens in a field of flowers, you have probably seen game farm cats.  Photographers will pay a lot for images they Read More

Bearing Witness When It Is Unbearable

I was up most of the night after seeing the image at the bottom of this page, so stop at the big Red Warning label below if you don't want to see something you can never un-see.  I leave a lot of room after the warning so you won't accidentally see that awful image, so please read this through and just stop at the huge red letters. Bobcat rehab is the most rewarding, most challenging and most gut wrenching part of our work at Big Cat Rescue. The moment a call comes in about a bobcat in distress the tension starts to mount.  Is it really Read More

 Cypress the Rehab Bobcat Update Cypress the bobcat was rescued on January 4, 2014 and has been recovering in the West - Boensch Cat Hospital for these past 7 weeks.  She had been resisting eating whole prey items, such as rats and chicks, so we were getting worried that she would never switch off the ground diet we have been giving her to the real prey items that she would have to eat in the wild. We couldn't let her lose her ability to recognize prey and insisted that she eat what wild bobcats eat, but maybe Cypress knew best because Read More
