HAPPY EARTH DAY If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. – CHIEF SEATTLE OF THE SUWAMISH TRIBE, letter to President Franklin Pierce Flavio Tiger and His Big Move Flavio, a 24 year old male tiger, was recently loaded up into a transport cage to await his ride that would take him to Gainesville where he had an appointment with his veterinarian. (He is one of a handful of cats that reside at the sanctuary that were retired from the circus. The circus funds the care of their retirees and provides veterinary care using their own staff.) When the transportation plans fell through, Flavio was all loaded up with no place to go. So Big Cat Rescuers thought it would be the purr-fect time to enrich his life with a move to a much larger enclosure. Bengali was moved from his half acre Cat-a-tat to an adjacent one and then Flavio was moved into Bengali’s enclosure. Right away Flavio explored the entire perimeter stopping to smell every interesting smell along the way! He seems to really enjoy the new space and will continue to live there until his vet visit, which is scheduled in about a week.
