Tobi

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

Raindance

Raindance Female Bobcat DOB 5/8/93 Rescued 5/27/93   Raindance came to Big Cat Rescue from a fur farm in Minnesota. We had ordered six Bobcat kittens by phone, but were told that we must pick them up in person. We traveled to Minnesota, and when we arrived, we saw a sign out front that said "Fur Farm". We thought that the sign probably only applied to the mink and foxes being raised there (although that is bad enough). We asked what they do with the Bobcats, Canadian, and Siberian Lynx kittens that aren't sold to pet homes, Read More

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
