Christmas Enrichment for Big Cats 2008
Enrichment is a very important part of caring for captive animals, at Big Cat Rescue we maintain a program making sure that all our cats receive enrichment on a regular basis. A special treat for the cats at this time of year is left over Christmas trees that are donated by local stores. Watch as our lions, tigers and leopards enjoy playing with their trees!
Thank you for watching and happy new year from all the cats at Big Cat Rescue!
In Between Tours at Big Cat Rescue
The cats behave quite differently when they think no one is watching. This video shows you a bit of that as well as showing you some of the things the staff and volunteers are doing between tours. Learn more about us, about the various types of tours we offer and about what we do and why we do it.
Tiger Rescue 2008
There are new rescues on the way to Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, FL. Watch as Nala, a retired circus performer at the sanctuary, enjoys moving into a new habitat as other habitats are prepared. Moving is always exciting as it provides new territory to explore, new scents, new neighbors, and a new vantage point. This helps cut down on the boredom of captivity.
Big Cat Christmas Decorations 2008
At this time of year, the ornaments in our trees may be different, the gifts under our trees are certainly unique, but the feelings are the same – we all enjoy the holidays!! Watch the big cats at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, FL frolic with their holiday trees.
Big Cat Halloween 2008
Each year we are lucky enough to receive left over pumpkins from stores after halloween, pumpkins are a great source of enrichment for our cats, as well as a great source of entertainment for the staff and volunteers at Big Cat Rescue! All the cats love to play, eat and generally demolish the pumpkins, providing them with hours of entertainment, watch as we show you what they get up to when they are given one of their favourite treats.
