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.

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.

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

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.

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!

Santino Serval Goes to Vet
Santino Serval has been on Marin for the past year and eagerly takes his meds in meat each night, so when he didn't want to get up for Angie last night, she called Gale, who called Dr Wynn, resulting in a request to bring him in to Ehrlich Animal Hospital. Gale easily netted him as he felt to bad to put up a fight and she and Chris scooted him into the squeeze cage.
Upon arrival, Santino was sedated by Dr Danielson so that all would be ready to roll as Dr Wynn Read More
