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
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 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.

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
Most Daring Rescue Ever!
Nine exotic cats and two other wild animals were confiscated from a dilapidated Atchison, Kansas, property yesterday after authorities discovered that the animals had been abandoned in their enclosures without access to food or clean water. The Atchison County Sheriff’s Office seized one tiger, two cougars, three bobcats, two lynx, a serval and two skunks under the state’s Dangerous Regulated Animals Act and the animal cruelty code.

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.

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

The Osceola County Fair in Kissimmee, FL will run from Feb. 8-17. The fair is scheduled to have an "exotic petting zoo" where visitors can pet animals, include servals. There is also a "Great Little Bear Show" during which an adult bear is forced to perform. Would you please contact the fair's General Manager, Dawn Rowe, to let her know that animal lovers do NOT want to see exotic cats and bears exploited as entertainment and used to make money!
