Today at Big Cat Rescue Nov 28 2013 Happy Thanksgiving

Check Out All Our Free Thanksgiving Games, Cards, Puzzles and More Fun at BigCatFun.com   Make it Stop!   http://youtu.be/qBZ8OA2nZp4   Our neighbor's kids began shooting paintballs at our cats when they were 12.  With your help we spent thousands of dollars to put up a wall to protect the cats.  Now they shoot shotguns and rifles next to the cats for hours at a time, almost every day.  Surely there is some sort of noise abatement law in Hillsborough County that can make them stop.  Your donations can help us Read More

Jade

  JADE Female Leopard DOB 6/17/97   Jade arrived at Big Cat Rescue with her sister, Armani. Jade is definitely the more mischievous one of the two. Like all leopards, she loves to jump up in the branches of the tree that is in her cat-a-tat. Most people have a very hard time telling the two sisters apart, they look so much alike.  But, if you look closely, you can tell Jade from Armani by the V-shaped row of spots on her forehead that look like a tiara. These two are so beautiful that some of the volunteers refer Read More

Cheetaro

  CHEETARO Male Leopard DOB 7/19/98 Rescued 11/2003   Cheetaro arrived at Big Cat Rescue in November 2003 from a roadside zoo. Cheetaro was confined to a corn crib with his mate and bred constantly so that his cubs could be sold.  They braved the New England winters together where a chill factor of -18 degrees wasn’t unusual.  They had no way to escape the sleet and snow.  They had only the shelter of the corn crib's tin roof and a box.  They had no choice but to  survive by enduring their fate together.  Read More

Simba

  SIMBA Male Leopard DOB 6/6/94 Rescued 8/4/94 Simba is a male Asian spotted leopard born on 6/6/94. He came to Big Cat Rescue on 8/4/94 with his sister, Nyla, as a bottle fed baby. Simba had the misfortune of being born the wrong sex.  Backyard breeders always want more females than males.  Since his sister Nyla was cross eyed, he was not a good candidate for breeding and was unwanted. Seeing what a beautiful leopard he has grown up to be, we are fortunate that we were able to take him in to save him from a long life Read More

Reno

  RENO Male Leopard DOB 1995 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 1/1/02 Reno is a very agile, golden spotted leopard who arrived at Big Cat Rescue in 2002 at the age of 7. Reno was a circus performer trained to ride around the ring in a chariot behind a horse. When the act was cancelled, he found himself unemployed. With no hunting skills and no idea of how to even climb a tree, he had zero chance of being released to the wild. Fortunately, instead of being sold to a canned hunt or roadside zoo like many out-of-work circus animals, Read More

Cat Chat 31

  http://youtu.be/aSUAe65GVEQ   Justine Mikolaitis talks with Carole Baskin about about what “Animal Law” means to her.  We will discuss the very first case that she filed, currently pending in Miami-Dade Circuit Court which is a “gross negligence” case, seeking non-economic damages as a result of the loss of a companion canine (i.e., dog). We will discuss “why “gross negligence,” as opposed to “veterinary negligence”, what non economic damages are and the topic of property law and dogs.   We will also Read More

Sassy

  SASSY Female Caracal DOB 12/6/94 Sassy and Rusty share a large cat-a-tat and can usually be found napping nestled together. Rusty tends to over groom Sassy, so she ends up looking like she’s wearing a band of short fur around her neck. Though Sassy is the smaller one of the two, she certainly calls the shots at feeding time. Despite living among cat-a-tats of lions, tigers, and leopards, the feeders always make sure Sassy is fed first or she will cause quite a ruckus. The saying, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” Read More

How to Rescue a Big Cat

Maybe the best way to start out is to talk about   How NOT to Rescue a Big Cat   About once a month some film producer calls me and makes some variation on this pitch:   "We want to find cases where we can bust down the door, like Dog The Bounty Hunter, and save these animals from their current situations. We'd like to find enough cases to sustain several episodes."   It just doesn't work that way.   Our response is typically, "The only time animals can be seized by USDA is usually at the end of a Read More
