Serengetti

  SERENGETI Female Serval DOB 9/16/96   Serengeti and Kalahari became unwanted pets after their owners divorced. Even people with the best intentions are not usually prepared for the life time commitment involved in owning an exotic cat. Serengeti is distinctively larger than her sister Kalahari. Serengeti is very quite and keeps to herself.

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. She is quite shy and will usually retreat to the cover of foliage when her enclosure is approached by keepers. However, she is a cat and curiosity always gets Read More

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. On the first call he said that his dad was in the hospital and not expected to survive. I told him all of the rules for us taking the cat and he agreed, but then I didn’t hear from him for 20 days. Meanwhile, on Dec 18 we were asked by USDA to take 2 bobcats from a Donna White, but I 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 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
