Rambo

RAMBO Male Jungle Cat DOB 2/22/99 Rescued 12/5/99   Rambo came to Big Cat Rescue on 12/5/99. He was bred for the pet trade.

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.

Jungle Cat Crystal Faces Down Death

Our little Jungle Cat, Crystal, may be fighting her last battle as she squares off against old age, renal failure and a detached retina. See what Big Cat Rescuers do to give her a better quality of life and maybe even a second chance at living.
