Tobi

Female Cougar DOB 3/1/91 Rescued 8/18/95   She is the perfect example of why it never works out to make a pet of a wild cat.  In her case there was a husband and wife who had lots of money, larger than usual cages and who fed their cats a decent diet. But all in the same month the wife became pregnant and the husband discovered that he was terminally ill.  With two tigers and eight cougars as pets, where were they going to find forever homes for their animals?  We were able to take one tiger and all 8 cougars, but big Read More

Orion

Male Cougar DOB 10/1/05   Orion is the goofy one in the group, he is always up to something and puts a smile on our faces with his silly antics. The three cubs can be hard to tell apart at times, but if you look in their eyes, you will be able to pick out his mischievous gaze and know right away which one is Orion. Orion loves dinner time and can change abruptly from cute goofball to serious cougar with an appetite. Orion also loves to climb the trees in his enclosures and is constantly testing the limits of the tinier branches. A Read More

Mac

  Male Cougar DOB 9/2/96 Rescued 1/9/98   Mac was brought here by his owner to be boarded because of zoning laws changing in his owner’s home town, but that was many years ago. He now has a permanent home at Big Cat Rescue and enjoys a 1200 square foot lush Cat.a.tat with a large cave den.   Mac has a particular penchant for small children, as do most big cats. Big cats see children as potential prey and having a big cat as a pet is a recipe for disaster. When a group comes by on a guided tour, Mac always picks out Read More

Aspen Echo

  Female Cougar DOB 8/30/97   Aspen sports the kinked tail and mid-back cowlick that are common to the Florida Panther. She also has a very reddish hue to her coat. Aspen is definately one of the more hyper active cougars at Big Cat Rescue. She has no trouble at all entertaining herself by crashing through the thick palmettos in her enclosure chasing after lizards, squirrels, and anything else that moves. She even likes to stalk Keepers as they clean her enclosure in the mornings. Quite the character, Aspen is very silly Read More

Artemis

  Female Cougar DOB 10/1/05 Artemis is the serious sister and the more aloof of the three cubs. She is very sweet and loves her brothers, but she tends to be a bit of a loner at times. Artemis also goes by the nickname of "Baby" among the Keeper Volunteers. A mother mountain lion had been shot by a hunter leaving her three newborn kittens orphans. A rehabber had been given temporary custody of three cougar cubs by Idaho's Fish and Game Department and three weeks to find them a home in a zoo or to euthanize them. The idea of these magnificent Read More
