Levi

LEVI Male Bobcat DOB 4/30/95 Rescued 6/6/95   Levi came to live at Big Cat Rescue in 1995 along with 10 other Bobcats who were destined to be the next year’s fur coat harvest.

Apache

APACHE Male Bobcat Date of Birth: 5/5/95 Rescued  6/6/95   Apache came to Big Cat Rescue on June 6,1995.

Little Feather

  LITTLE FEATHER Female Bobcat DOB 5/3/93 Rescued 5/8/93   Little Feather was five days old when she came to Big Cat Rescue. She had been bred at a game farm that bred bobcats and cougars. Game farms often breed wild animals to be shot as game, or to be exploited in other awful ways.  One of the most common is one that you have probably seen. If you have ever seen bobcat or lynx mothers with their kittens in a field of flowers, you have probably seen game farm cats.  Photographers will pay a lot for images they Read More

Bearing Witness When It Is Unbearable

I was up most of the night after seeing the image at the bottom of this page, so stop at the big Red Warning label below if you don't want to see something you can never un-see.  I leave a lot of room after the warning so you won't accidentally see that awful image, so please read this through and just stop at the huge red letters. Bobcat rehab is the most rewarding, most challenging and most gut wrenching part of our work at Big Cat Rescue. The moment a call comes in about a bobcat in distress the tension starts to mount.  Is it really Read More
