DOB 3/1/89 DOD 11/20/12
Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 1/11/94
Kanawha arrived at Big Cat Rescue on 1/11/94. Under the care of her previous owner her health had began to deteriorate causing her to become extremely thin. When she arrived she was put on a healthy diet which includes whole prey, chicken quarters, and a special formulated ground diet that is nutritionally balanced. Her health improved dramatically and she gained weight right away. She was introduced to Katmandu and fell in love right away. The two were inseparable until his death at the age of 19.
Big Cat Rescue has already bought out every U.S. fur farm known to us and we would like to do the same with the Canadian ones. We determined, however, that in order to purchase the cats remaining at the known Canadian farm, and build barely adequate caging for them, it would have cost over $95,000. back in 1997. Since then we have determined that we cannot rescue our way out of this problem and are devoting time and energy to changing laws to protect the animals. Visit www.CatLaws.com to help.
