Caging Big Cats

CAGING See more photos and explanation of Big Cat Cages   Since all exotic cats, no matter how early they are neutered or spayed, spray bucket loads of urine all day you will want to provide an outdoor cage.

Film a Rescue

How Can I Film a Rescue? Before you contact Big Cat Rescue and ask if you can film a rescue, or film a few days of yourself working here, please consider the following: Wild cats are as emotionally complex as humans; maybe even more so. A mother cat will kill her young rather than let them suffer, if they are born into a situation that is too unfavorable to their happy existence. Yet we use the term "tiger mom" to convey the fact that a tiger will fight to the death and sacrifice herself to protect her young, as will any other cat. Read More

Liger Facts

Hear this page: Where do Ligers Come From? http://youtu.be/txcbe4EtuUw Irresponsible breeders is the short answer. A liger is the result of breeding a male lion to a tigress. A tigon is the result of breeding a male tiger to a lioness. Since lions and tigers do not exist in the same areas, this is not something that happens in the wild. It is done in captivity by disreputable carnies to produce a freak that ignorant people will pay to see. These cats suffer from many birth defects and usually die young. Because ligers are usually Read More
