Male Canada lynx
Skipper’s age is unknown. He had been purchased along with Gilligan at an auction.
Skipper had the largest cage measuring about 5′ x 30′. He had a small plastic dog house and a plastic shelf precariously attached to the side of his cage. A large rabbit carcass lay rotting in the corner of his cage and the entire cage was just as dirty as the others, feces lying everywhere and urine soaked straw.
Big Cat Rescuers entered Skipper’s cage with nets in hand and a large transport crate. Because of his size and the fact that he was fully clawed the plan was to just corral Skipper into the crate using the nets. Well Skipper had another idea and ran straight into the net.
He was netted and then shifted into the crate.
Skipper was the first of the Kansas cats to exit his crate and begin exploring his new enclosure at Big Cat Rescue. He cautiously stepped into his enclosure while looking all around at all of the new sights. After a few steps he turned and looked at the Big Cat Rescuers who had just released him from his crate and then took a few big stretches before moving on and investigating every last nook and cranny of his new home.
