Now at Big Cat Rescue Oct 3 2014

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

Kimba Tiger Update On June 8, 2014 both of our vets came out to re evaluate Kimba the tigress, as she just isn't eating as well as Zeus and Keisha.  They were deliberating over what would be the best and safest course of action for Kimba because she is 20 years old and extremely frail.  We didn't think she would even make it through the rescue and transport to FL as she was so starved and depleted.  Kimba would only eat a few morsels of food and then stop, so they decided to try and feed her several times a day to try and build her strength Read More

Bobcat Killed by "Kindness" A Story That Breaks My Heart On Dec 27, 2013 I got a call from Scott C.  He said he had been camping with his family, including a five year old daughter, at the Saint Sebastian River Preserve State Park at 1000 Buffer Preserve Dr in Fellsmere, FL and had been approached by a young, starving, female bobcat kitten.  I asked him to send photos and he sent these.  It would be a three hour drive for me to go see if I could find her, so I immediately contacted Sherrie Wentworth of www.eastcoastwildliferehab.com and Read More
