Now at Big Cat Rescue Feb 19 2014

http://youtu.be/2eIuxWSYmu4 In this Keeper Walkabout the first 20 minutes are: Armani the leopard going from the Cat Hospital back out to be reunited with her sister Jade. We rescued 5 newborn kittens and Jamie gives them a health check and makes sure they are all nursing well before handing off to the interns to raise. Jamie and Jo take the afternoon shift feeding kittens because Jamie wants to see if syringes will work better than bottles. Gale builds a rolling metal cabinet. Cleo the Serval is doing that weird neck arching Read More

Male Binturong Born 1991 Rescued 6/15/95 Died 2/11/14 Banjo was used in classroom presentations by Wildlife Educators of America in Castaic, CA and was sent here when it was discovered that he was a he and not a she.

His unusual appearance and even more unusual scent of popcorn amazes the crowd. Even though Banjo has an enormous enclosure, he always hangs out in the Read More

Cages

http://youtu.be/KrF0rRL5DHA   Big Cat Caging No big cat belongs in a cage, but until we have better laws to protect exotic cats from being bred for lives of captivity and deprivation, we need to give them as much space and privacy as possible.  In their wild their territories would measure in square miles, not square feet, so even at its best a cage is nothing more than a jail cell. 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 Read More

Cypress

Update:  3/11/14:  Thanks to our wonderful SkipAHolics, who keep a constant eye on our hospitalized cats, we were able to detect that Cypress the bobcat was straining to defecate again.  She went in to Ehrlich Road Animal Hospital to be examined and it was clear that she is never going to heal properly and be able to pass food; not even the ground diet she's been getting.  The only humane option was to euthanize her while she was asleep. Tributes to her brief, but inspiring life, are here:  https://sites.google.com/site/bigcattributes/home/cypress-bobcat Video Read More

Natasha

Natasha the lynx was rescued from being turned into a fur coat 20 years ago. Since then she has lived in progressively larger cages, but has never had an unobstructed view of the sky. This may be her last year on this earth. Would you give her the chance to see the stars above and bask in the sun, in an enclosure that measures in acres rather than sq feet? Cougars, bobcats, servals, caracals and other exotic cats are in need of room to run too. We will be using the area that you see in the video, but it needs totally different walls to keep Read More
