What should I do with an old fur coat

Just about every day I am giving a tour, or overhearing a tour, or responding to a reporter and discussing the way that Big Cat Rescue started; which was in buying all of the cats off U.S. fur farms to end that trade. Since I am thinking about cats being killed for their coats almost every day, I forget sometimes that there are people out there who don't realize the cruelty involved in all fur products, until I hear from someone like Leigh. She wrote to me recently and said, "In going through many belongings, I came across something I’d almost Read More

Jade

Female Leopard DOB 6/17/97   Jade arrived at Big Cat Rescue with her sister, Armani. Jade is definitely the more mischievous one of the two. Like all leopards, she loves to jump up in the branches of the tree that is in her cat-a-tat. Most people have a very hard time telling the two sisters apart, they look so much alike.  But, if you look closely, you can tell Jade from Armani by the V-shaped row of spots on her forehead that look like a tiara. These two are so beautiful that some of the volunteers refer to them as the “Hilton Read More

Sabre

Male Leopard DOB 3/1/92 Rescued 7/20/95 Sabre was 3 years old when he arrived at Big Cat Rescue on 7/20/95. Though he was only supposed to be here temporarily, his former owner moved and left no forwarding address. This could have been another sad ending as most are in the exotic pet world. Luckily, we had taken Sabre in and he will have a home here for life. He is very playful and fun loving and always has a mischievous look on his face. He loves to act very silly, running about his cat-a-tat and jumping on top of his mountain Read More

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. As the public becomes better educated about why it is so wrong to breed wild cats for life in Read More

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 teeth!   The tiniest mask straps Read More

Jumanji

Male Leopard DOB 2/23/96   Since he is one of the first black leopards you see at the sanctuary, Jumanji is used to quite a bit of attention. Most days, he can be found in the shadiest part of his cat-a-tat lounging on his fern-covered tree log. It is very easy to see how well black leopards camouflage themselves in the jungle since most people walk right by without noticing him there. People magazine certainly noticed Jumanji though.  His photo was featured in an article written about Big Cat Rescue. Jumanji is also known Read More
