Lovey is approximately five years old and was Mr. Howell's mate. She is declawed on all four paws and is missing her top right canine.
The two of them shared a cramped cage about 5'x13'. Their only shelter was a small plastic dog house that they managed to cram themselves into to escape the cold weather. The also had a tiny child's play table to perch on.
Lovey and Mr. Howell were both intact, so Lovey was spayed shortly after being rescued so that they can live together.

Rescued on 5/5/2013
Ginger is approximately four years old and was bottle raised from a kitten. She did not have a name, so in keeping with the Gilligan's Island theme she was named Ginger. Ginger was kept in a cage about 9' x 12'. On one side of her two cougars were housed and on the other was an empty cage about half the size of hers.
That empty cage housed another serval who died a few months before the rescue. Sadly the serval had become wedged in between the door panels and died. Read More
TAMPA - Big Cat Rescue staffers flew into town Tuesday with a 9-month-old bobcat kitten rescued from Rhode Island.
The kitten was at the center of a months-long legal battle that touched off after a Rhode Island vet seized him from someone who bought him from a backyard breeder.
It is illegal to have bobcats as pets in Rhode Island.
The cat's owner went to court to get the cat back, but the state won. Now the bobcat will live at Big Cat Rescue for the rest of his life.

He also has kidney disease, which may be the culprit for his urinary tract infection. His Read More

Reviews of Big Cat Rescue
People who exploit big cats hate us and post negative and false reviews to try and discourage people from finding out what really happens to lion and tiger cubs after they can no longer be used as pay-to-play props. That is why we need real four and five stars reviews from people who have been here or done business with Big Cat Rescue.
