Stealing Images Becomes Harder...Thankfully
Someone asked us on Facebook what kind of cat this was:
We knew it was an altered photo of Nirvana our ocelot. See the original photo below:

Male Jungle Cat
Rambo came to Big Cat Rescue on 12/5/99. He was bred for the pet trade. His owner had sent him to live with her daughter who died unexpectedly and his primary caregiver became the 12 year old grand daughter. She and her relatives agreed that they did not want to see Rambo exploited as part of a hybridization breeding plan for profit and asked if he could come live at Big Cat Rescue.
He is very talkative and loves to carry on conversations with his keepers.

Male Leopard Cat
DOB 6/30/00 - 5/27/14
We quit breeding cats in 1997 when our Co-Founder disappeared. We spent the next 3 years building better Cat-A-Tats for our 200 residents. We neutered and spayed all of the bobcats, cougars and lynx first.
We had a pair of Amur Leopard Cats who had lived together since 1995. In the Spring of 2000 the Leopard Cats moved into their new 1000 square foot Cat-A-Tat with it’s bushes, trees and underground dens. It must have been very romantic.
Much to our amazement, Shalimar Read More
I was up most of the night after seeing the image at the bottom of this page, so stop at the big Red Warning label below if you don't want to see something you can never un-see. I leave a lot of room after the warning so you won't accidentally see that awful image, so please read this through and just stop at the huge red letters.
Bobcat rehab is the most rewarding, most challenging and most gut wrenching part of our work at Big Cat Rescue.
The moment a call comes in about a bobcat in distress the tension starts to mount. Is it really Read More
Tampa March for Lions is a Roaring Success
The Tampa March for Lions may have just seemed like one heck of a party, but thanks to everyone who came and fundraised for the event, we were able to net $10,000 and we wanted to spend it on ways to help lions outside our gates. The movers and shakers behind the Global March for Lions were Chris and Bev Mercer of CannedLion.org. Any time we need the truth on what is happening in Africa regarding lions, we always turn to Chris and Bev. They have been the leading force against lion hunting and Read More
West Virginia Bans Private Possession of Wild Animals!
Gov. Tomblin has signed a bill into law to prohibit the private possession of dangerous wild animals. Introduced by Del. Randy Swartzmiller (D-1), HB 4393 passed the House by a vote of 72 to 23, and the Senate by a 22 to 11 vote. The bill creates a Dangerous Wild Animal Board, whose members will determine which animals to include under the law. The Humane Society of the United States, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the International Fund for Animal Welfare praise Gov. Tomblin’s Read More
This leopard demonstrates, better than most, the fact that you may be able to take the animal out of the wild but you will never take the wild out of the animal. Sundari will watch very closely as groups of people walk through the sanctuary. She immediately sizes up “the herd” from a distance and determines who is the weakest, the youngest or the most infirm. That is the person who gets her utmost attention. She’s even been seen climbing to the top of her enclosure just to get Read More
Nyla came to Big Cat Rescue with her brother, Simba, on 8/4/94. She was a product of the entertainment industry, which only wants perfect looking models. Because she was cross eyed, she was unwanted.
She gets very jealous if her brother Simba is getting any attention and will begin making a nuisance of herself until all the attention is focused on her. All she wants is everyone's undivided affection.
She’s much smaller than her brother, Read More
Este felino, en su fase de color de melanismo, a menudo es llamado confusamente Pantera Negra. Esta especie ha sido (y sigue siendo) cazada ilegalmente en toda su área de distribución por deporte, y por su pelaje.
El leopardo es capaz de correr un poco casi a 64 Kilómetros por hora durante períodos breves. Puede saltar más de 6 metros en horizontal y 3 metros verticalmente. También es un nadador muy hábil.
Tamaño y apariencia : El leopardo es el miembro más pequeño de los 4 " grandes felinos " , y más estrechamente Read More
