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 very light Read More

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 and frail when she arrived 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
