Now at Big Cat Rescue Oct 3 2014

Shaniqua

SHANIQUA Female Jungle Cat DOB 5/1/94 Rescued 9/19/94 Died 10/3/13  Read her tributes here. Shaniqua came from an exotic animal auction where all sorts of wild animals are sold to the highest bidder with no thought as to their well being. From the first day she arrived here it became apparent why Shaniqua or any Jungle Cat would never make a good pet.   She was so hyperactive she was bouncing off the walls, literally. She even jumped into a ceiling fan or two and did not seem to learn anything from the experience, Read More
