Ginger

Ginger Female serval Appx. DOB 1/1/2009 Rescued on  5/5/2013   Ginger is approximately four years old and was bottle raised from a kitten. She did not have a name, so in keeping with the Gilligan's Island theme she was named Ginger. Ginger was kept in a cage about 9' x 12'. On one side of her two cougars were housed and on the other was an empty cage about half the size of hers. That empty cage housed another serval who died a few months before the rescue. Sadly the serval had become wedged in between the door panels and died. Read More

Tonga

  TONGA Male White Serval DOB 5/21/97 Sponsor Tonga http://www.bigcatrescue.biz/servlet/the-1166/Serval-Sponsorship/Detail   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 Read More

Fluffy

  FLUFFY Female Serval DOB 6/16/93 Rescued  7/20/93 Fluffy came to Big Cat Rescue from Oregon as a result of the pet trade in July of 1993. Fluffy was always been extremely affectionate until she became an adult. Servals are great hunters and fishers and she found much more happiness in a natural enclosure filled with trees, palmetto bushes and logs to investigate.

Nala Serval

  Nala Female Serval DOB appx 1/1/10 Rescued 1/5/13     A man called on Dec. 13 and I called him back the same day and told him we would take his father’s serval if he would contract to never own another exotic cat.
