3 Hours of Loading and Unloading Tigers   http://youtu.be/q4omBZQqFHI   Flavio, age 24, and SARMOTI, age 20, the circus tigers, go on a Trip, when they need to see the vet.  This video makes it look easy, but it took 3 hours to get the tigers off the truck.  The 3 hours of coaxing and no tiger made for pretty dull viewing, so only the action shots were captured here.  While the tigers were on the road, we cleaned and mowed and shift the Texas Tigers and others around so they could enjoy different views, smells and neighbors.

Live Kitten Cam Live streaming by Ustream Florida Shed Movers http://youtu.be/1RSwUHc0RaE Big Cat Rescue's storage shed for gift shop items was on the "cat side" of our fence, so our AdvoCats and Red Shirts could not go out for restocking without an escort. We wanted to move the shed to the Partner / Guest side of the parking lot fence, but were afraid the old shed would just fall to pieces. Rob and crew assured us they could move the shed easily, economically and right away. We need some larger sheds and feel comfortable buying them used Read More

HAPPY EARTH DAY   If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man.

Circus Tigers, Flavio, Bengali & SARMOTI   http://youtu.be/Hml0Vr9a4h4   Circle of Life   Today is Jacquie Norris' birthday...but she doesn't know it.  She is my maternal grandmother, although until the end she would insist that she was my mother because she didn't want people to think she was old enough to BE a grandmother.  She was beautiful and smart but after losing my grandfather in 1997, she was never the same.  Depression took her body and mind over the past 15 years and for the last couple of years she Read More

Andre the Tiger

ANDRE Male Tiger Born 1/1/96 Rescued 9/28/11 Arthur, Andre and Amanda were born in 1996 in New Jersey to be used as pay-to-play photo props.  It never makes sense to breed more cubs to raise money to feed last year's cats, and the New Jersey facility fell into disrepair and then was shut down after USDA revoked their license following a tiger escape. In 2003, Wild Animal Orphanage took in the 24 tigers but big cats have big appetites and by 2010 the Wild Animal Orphanage was in bankruptcy. It took over a year to find permanent Read More
