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 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 Read More

Pharaoh

PHARAOH Male White Serval DOB 4/22/99   Pharaoh’s coat is snow white and his spots are a silvery gray, just like his brother Tonga, although he has two unusual dark yellow spots and one black spot on his shoulder and his hind leg. There was a time when we believed that breeding exotic cats would save them from extinction and while that may be true we later concluded that it was not our right to impose captivity upon another creature to ensure that it would be here for the benefit of man. We ceased intentional breeding of all Read More

Kalahari

KALAHARI Female Serval DOB 9/16/96   Kalahari and Serengeti were pets that became unwanted after a divorce. Even people with the best intentions are not usually prepared for the life time commitment involved in owning an exotic cat. Kalahari is smaller than her sister Serengeti, and she has a chronic heart condition for which she must be given medication every day. Several of the cats at Big Cat Rescue have chronic conditions that require medications on an ongoing basis. Sometimes it can be quite difficult to get a wild cat Read More

Frosty

  FROSTY Male White Footed Serval DOB 1/1/95   Frosty  is the father of the only two white servals in the world, which were born here at the sanctuary. Big Cat Rescue stopped breeding in the mid 1990’s because there is no reason to breed an exotic cat for a life in a cage. Frosty loves when you toss him a snack and will jump as high in the air as he can to catch it before it falls. Frosty is quite acrobatic and if a keeper tosses him a treat, he will jump high into the air to try to catch it before it hits the ground. Read More

Cybil

  CYBIL Female Serval DOB 5/22/96   Cybil had a back leg that was fractured beyond repair and it healed very crooked. It was thought that someday we would have the leg removed, but she hops around just fine and the leg has not atrophied as expected. Cybil was born into the pet trade in 1996. She is probably one of the meanest Servals that lives at Big Cat Rescue. She always greets with a hiss (as shown in this photo). Because Cybil does not like people very much she is not on the regular tour path. That way she will Read More
