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. Frosty is much more stocky Read More

Cybil

Cybil Female Serval DOB 5/22/96 - 3/20/2015   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. 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 not be upset by visitors. Cybil is the perfect example 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 of Read More

Big Cat Rescue Wants to be the Only Big Cat Sanctuary

That is the lie that animal abusers tell everyone to try and change the subject from protecting exotic cats to a message of mere competition.   They trot out their modified version of our 20 year plan to back up their ridiculous claims, but they leave out the most important part of the plan, which is that there no longer be big cats suffering in captivity, and thus no longer a need for sanctuaries, including Big Cat Rescue's sanctuary. As the public becomes better educated about why it is so wrong to breed wild cats for life in Read More

Genie the Sandcat is rushed to the vet when her keepers note that she is acting weird. Genie Sandcat was sedated in a glass box used for domestic cats.   This was to make sedation easier on her since she is only 3.3 pounds and 14 years old.   Dr. Wynn keeps a close eye on her vitals.   The monitors are just all over the place, so she has to rely on feel, sound and instincts.   For such an old and tiny cat, Genie Sandcat has some fearsome teeth!   The tiniest mask straps Read More
