Her owner was willing Read More

Tonga

Tonga Male White Serval DOB 5/21/97 Sponsor Tonga http://big-cat-rescue.myshopify.com/products/serval-sponsorship   To our knowledge, only two white servals exist in the world:  Tonga and his brother Pharaoh.  The white coat is just the outward indication of the deleterious effects of inbreeding.  Tonga was 15 years old when he was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. Although most arise without antecedent cause, in many species, especially in white cats, prolonged exposure to sunlight is a major predisposing factor.  Being Read More

Servie

Servie Female Serval DOB 1/1/00 Rescued  5/25/10   A  pet Serval was confined to a tiny, two room apartment for the past 10 years. She was housed with a domestic cat, presumably for the purpose of breeding Savannah Cats which can fetch as much as $26,000. Her life was about as boring as can be imagined since she had to be kept secreted away from the world, but all of that was about to change.   Her owner was so ill that she needed intensive hospital care, but having no relatives and no one she could turn to, it was up Read More

Purr-sonality

Purr-sonality Female Serval DOB 1/1/95 As with many of the servals we have at Big Cat Rescue, PURRsonality seems to enjoy the daily attention she gets from her volunteer keepers. She eagerly plays with any enrichment items that are given to her to break up the monotony of life in captivity. She can be seen batting spice bags around and rubbing and rubbing them until the scent has completely disappeared. As with most of our servals, this is the type of playful, non-threatening behavior you’ll see from them during the daytime. But, feeding Read More

Nairobi

Nairobi Female Serval DOB 4/1/93 Rescued  7/7/94 Nairobi was the mascot in a pet store window until she came to live at Big Cat Rescue July 7, 1994. The pet store owner was afraid that she would bite the small children who were always taunting her and she was right.   Nairobi spends her days lounging in her huge natural Cat.a.tat and can often be found draped over her favorite log without a care in the world.   http://youtu.be/w-c-TsGxPSs     Sponsor Nairobi http://big-cat-rescue.myshopify.com/products/serval-sponsorship   Read More
