Female Geoffroy Cat

DOB 5/1/93

Rescued 7/19/94


Geoffroy Cat at Big Cat RescueWe had been following his story from birth and chased him through his second owner, who sent him along to Big Cat Rescue with three Bengals on 7/19/94. He arrived taped up in a cardboard box. The fury from within the box made opening it a death defying act. As with many exotic cats, the smaller they are, the more fierce they can be. Everyone says that she “looks just like a domestic cat” but careful study of her size and shape shows that she is indeed a wild cat. It wasn’t until we went to have her neutered that we discovered that she had fooled all three of his owners; Nico is a female.

Nico speaks to us of the medicine of Antelope which is the call to Action.  Antelope reminds Nico that life on this planet is brief and we are all here with a higher purpose than what our Ego paints as its illusion.  Our higher calling has nothing to do with hoarding things.  The physical body is made of dust and it and all that it gathers will return to dust.  Nico wants us to remember that we are called to action on behalf of self, family, clan, nation and finally Mother Earth.



Do something today to make the world a better place.  Pick up litter that you didn’t toss.  Clean up a mess that you didn’t make.  Smile at everyone you meet and silently wish them well.  Make a child laugh or teach him to read.  Pay the toll for the person you don’t know on the highway behind you.  Clean out your closets and garage and give all of the things you have gathering dust to someone who can use them.  Nico knows that the more you give, the more abundantly life gives back, but you have to make the first move.

At 19 Nico needed a tooth extraction to save her life.


  1. Kuro Arashi i read your comment and came to the word "her as" and since it wasn't spaced i accidentally read it as "Heras" as being the name of your kitten lol… I found it would be a cool name for a feral kitten, which is what i have, I can not keep her though as we already have a few kittens that were given to us by someone who didn't want to deal with kittens of a female cat they didn't even know was having kittens.

  2. you never truly choose a cat they are always picking you:) kinda reminds me of my little kitten monster,we got heras a stray and i still have scars from catching her. she was the smallest from a stray litter an no one could get close,i got her home an she hid under the bed and was scared… 2 months later she wont leave my side an comes when wisled for

  3. You may say that she's the smallest but she thinks she's the biggest! Also, lol at 4.4lbs! That's smaller than my 6lb siamese mix, who is also a bossy little girl.

  4. Big Cat Rescue does so much to help cats. They take exotic cats from bad situations and give them sanctuary for life. They also help out with Florida's orphan kittens.

  5. thank you so much for your efforts on behalf of this beautiful feline creature. please continue to enlighten us cat worshipers, and we will try to do our part.
