Servie

  Female Serval DOB 1/1/00 Rescued  5/25/10   A  pet Serval was confined to a tiny, two room apartment for the past 10 years. She was housed with a domestic cat, presumably for the purpose of breeding Savannah Cats which can fetch as much as $26,000. Her life was about as boring as can be imagined since she had to be kept secreted away from the world, but all of that was about to change.   Her owner was so ill that she needed intensive hospital care, but having no relatives and no one she could turn to, it was up Read More

Pharaoh

Male White Serval DOB 4/22/99   Pharaoh’s coat is snow white and his spots are a silvery gray, just like his brother Tonga, although he has two unusual dark yellow spots and one black spot on his shoulder and his hind leg. There was a time when we believed that breeding exotic cats would save them from extinction and while that may be true we later concluded that it was not our right to impose captivity upon another creature to ensure that it would be here for the benefit of man. We ceased intentional breeding of all of our cats Read More

Kalahari

Female Serval DOB 9/16/96   Kalahari and Serengeti were pets that became unwanted after a divorce. Even people with the best intentions are not usually prepared for the life time commitment involved in owning an exotic cat. Kalahari is smaller than her sister Serengeti, and she has a chronic heart condition for which she must be given medication every day. Several of the cats at Big Cat Rescue have chronic conditions that require medications on an ongoing basis. Sometimes it can be quite difficult to get a wild cat to eat their medication. Read More

Frosty

Male White Footed Serval DOB 1/1/95   Frosty  is the father of the only two white servals in the world, which were born here at the sanctuary. Big Cat Rescue stopped breeding in the mid 1990’s because there is no reason to breed an exotic cat for a life in a cage. Frosty loves when you toss him a snack and will jump as high in the air as he can to catch it before it falls. Frosty is quite acrobatic and if a keeper tosses him a treat, he will jump high into the air to try to catch it before it hits the ground. Frosty is much more stocky Read More

Cleo-cat-tra

CLEO-CAT-TRA Female Serval DOB 8/11/1997 DOD 2/25/2014 Cleo arrived at Big Cat Rescue when her former owners no longer wanted her. People almost always discover within the first year or two that exotic cats don’t make good pets. Cleo is smaller than most of our servals. She also has very dark brown eyes. Most servals have golden colored eyes. Cleo has a very sweet disposition and loves extra attention. Most of our servals were rescued from people who got them as pets and were not prepared for the fact that male or female, altered Read More
