Little White Dove
Little White Dove is well known for her beautiful golden eyes. She chose to bond and live with Running Bear. Though she was once food aggressive, as so many of the wildcats here are, she now defers to Running Bear at feeding time. She will even allow him to be fed before her.
During the day, they spend much of their time perched high up in their tree sleeping. Seeing them up there, it is easy for guests to understand the nocturnal nature of bobcats and how easily they can camouflage Read More

On Mar 5 we got a call from the Florida Wildlife Commission asking if we could help a blind bobcat that had been reported by the Manager of the Cemex Mine. His name is Tommie and he loves the wildlife that calls his land a sanctuary. He knew there was something desperately wrong with this little kitten from the first day he saw her, which was about two weeks before.

Raindance came to Big Cat Rescue from a fur farm in Minnesota. We had ordered six Bobcat kittens by phone, but were told that we must pick them up in person.

We thought that the sign probably only applied to the mink and foxes being raised there (although that is bad enough).
We asked what they do with the Bobcats, Canadian, and Siberian Lynx kittens that aren't sold to pet homes, Read More
The Great Pretender
The Great Pretender came to Big Cat Rescue at the same time and as a litter mate to Precious. We named him the Great Pretender because he always pretended to be so "bad" when he was little. Unfortunately, once he was full grown he wasn’t just pretending anymore. He does not care for people much and actually grew to be quite aggressive especially at feeding time. This changed dramatically after he began to participate in operant conditioning sessions. He is much calmer when Read More

Lovey is approximately five years old and was Mr. Howell's mate. She is declawed on all four paws and is missing her top right canine.
The two of them shared a cramped cage about 5'x13'. Their only shelter was a small plastic dog house that they managed to cram themselves into to escape the cold weather. The also had a tiny child's play table to perch on.
Lovey and Mr. Howell were both intact, so Lovey was spayed shortly after being rescued so that they can live together.
