Sabre

  Sabre Male Leopard DOB 3/1/92 Rescued 7/20/95 Sabre was 3 years old when he arrived at Big Cat Rescue on 7/20/95. Though he was only supposed to be here temporarily, his former owner moved and left no forwarding address. This could have been another sad ending as most are in the exotic pet world. Luckily, we had taken Sabre in and he will have a home here for life. He is very playful and fun loving and always has a mischievous look on his face. He loves to act very silly, running about his cat-a-tat and jumping on top Read More

Amazing Grace

AMAZING GRACE Female Ocelot DOB 5/1/92 -6/11/2014 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 9/27/96   Amazing Grace was reported to be a three-year-old female ocelot when she arrived on 9/27/96, but appears to be much older. Her ears were very tattered because the place where she lived before had cats with common walls; meaning that one wall of the cage was shared between adjoining cats. When Amazing Grace would rub against the wire, the cat next to her would bite off pieces of her ears trying to get a grip on her. She is safe from harm Read More

When to Euthanize a Tiger

When to Euthanize a Tiger   http://youtu.be/zFvjkR4HpNQ   At Big Cat Rescue we have a general  decision tree that we and our vets use to determine when it is time to euthanize a big cat, but every situation is different. The vast majority of the time we just aren't sure that it is the right decision until we do the necropsy, which is the animal version of an autopsy.  The reason it is so hard to know, if we are doing the right thing, is because cats are hard wired to live the mantra of the wild; "Survival of the fittest." They Read More

Cameron

CAMERON Lion DOB 10/1/00 Rescued 5/3/04   Cameron the Lion and Zabu the White Tiger are Big Cat Rescue's odd couple. They were both born at a run down roadside zoo in 2000 and were rescued in 2004. At the New Hampshire zoo, Cameron had been raised with Zabu, the white tigress, with the hopes of cross breeding them and selling the resulting Liger cubs. People often hybridize lions and tigers because they are either trying to create a novelty that people will pay to come see or trying to avoid the law. Until recently, Read More
