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

Cleo-cat-tra

CLEO-CAT-TRA Female Serval DOB 8/11/1997 DOD 2/25/2014 Cleo arrived at Big Cat Rescue when her former owners no longer wanted her. People almost always discover within the first year or two that exotic cats don’t make good pets. Cleo is smaller than most of our servals. She also has very dark brown eyes. Most servals have golden colored eyes. Cleo has a very sweet disposition and loves extra attention. Most of our servals were rescued from people who got them as pets and were not prepared for the fact that male or female, altered Read More

Bongo

BONGO Male Serval DOB 3/1/91 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue  4/4/95 Bongo came to Big Cat Rescue from an auction on 4/4/95. He had been raised as a house pet, but his owner could no longer afford to feed and care for him. She warned us that he doesn’t like people in dark pants or uniforms. He has the most beautiful, big brown eyes ever to grace a Serval face. He gets very aggressive over food, but is otherwise gentle. He is also a favorite of one of the Senior Keepers and will turn into a chirping little kitten vying for Read More

Arizona

ARIZONA Female Serval DOB 4/1/89 Rescued  6/17/97   Arizona arrived at Big Cat Rescue 6/17/97 and is thought to be quite old. She is fully clawed and very aggressive at feeding time. Arizona loves enrichment time, her favorite thing is a food puzzle made out of a cardboard tube stuffed with treats and feathers. Other than when she is being fed Arizona keeps to her self hidden in the thick foliage provided by several palmetto bushes. Arizona is the oldest serval living at Big Cat Rescue and probably in the world.   http://youtu.be/w-c-TsGxPSs     Sponsor Read More

Today at Big Cat Rescue May 7 2013

National Geographic Moment   I was talking to a reporter about the new arrivals and noticed that a baby Cardinal had fallen out of the tree and onto Mary Ann the bobcat's jungle gym perch. The mother and father Cardinals were working desperately to lure Mary Ann away from the baby, so it could hop down to the ground outside her cage, but the baby was confused.     The baby wanted to watch the show from his perch on Mary Ann's platform. Mary Ann was so intrigued with these crazy Cardinals, who were just taunting her 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://www.bigcatrescue.biz/servlet/the-1166/Serval-Sponsorship/Detail   Read More

Desiree

DESIREE Female Serval DOB unknown Rescued  10/11/2009   Serval Rescue! An African Serval was limping along in the Arizona desert until she collapsed alongside a road.   She had almost completely given up the will to live. She was probably a pet or perhaps used in the hybrid breeding scheme that has become all the rage where Servals are bred to domestic house cats to produce Savannah Cat hybrids. The domestic cats are often killed in the process. The kittens sell for thousands of dollars, but when they mature they Read More
