Big Cat Rescue Wants to be the Only Big Cat Sanctuary

Big Cat Rescue Wants to be the Only Big Cat Sanctuary   That is the lie that animal abusers tell everyone to try and change the subject from protecting exotic cats to a message of mere competition.   They trot out their modified version of our 20 year plan to back up their ridiculous claims, but they leave out the most important part of the plan, which is that there no longer be big cats suffering in captivity, and thus no longer a need for sanctuaries, including Big Cat Rescue's sanctuary.

Ares also likes to play with the palmetto stumps in his enclosure and will often rip them out of the ground so he can shred them and bat them around his Cat.a.tat. A mother mountain lion had been shot by a hunter leaving her three newborn kittens orphans. A rehabber Read More

Now at Big Cat Rescue Oct 3 2014   Genie the Sandcat is rushed to the vet when her keepers note that she is acting weird. Genie Sandcat was sedated in a glass box used for domestic cats.   This was to make sedation easier on her since she is only 3.3 pounds and 14 years old.   Dr. Wynn keeps a close eye on her vitals.   The monitors are just all over the place, so she has to rely on feel, sound and instincts.   For such an old and tiny cat, Genie Sandcat has some fearsome Read More
