Cypress

Update:  3/11/14:  Thanks to our wonderful SkipAHolics, who keep a constant eye on our hospitalized cats, we were able to detect that Cypress the bobcat was straining to defecate again.  She went in to Ehrlich Road Animal Hospital to be examined and it was clear that she is never going to heal properly and be able to pass food; not even the ground diet she's been getting.  The only humane option was to euthanize her while she was asleep. Tributes to her brief, but inspiring life, are here:  https://sites.google.com/site/bigcattributes/home/cypress-bobcat Video Read More

Today at Big Cat Rescue Sept 30 2013

  Please leave wildlife alone! A baby bobcat was euthanized by the Health Department in South FL on Friday because a person picked the kitten up, thinking it an orphan, and she and her neighbor were both bitten. They called Animal Control, who was closed all weekend, so we couldn't reach them until today. They said that since there is no quarantine time known for rabies in bobcats, the Health Department made them euthanize the kitten so the head could be cut off and tested for rabies. Bobcats almost never contract rabies, and the women Read More

Bobcat Rescue! Caught in a fence and hanging from his back toe this poor little bobcat must have thought he was doomed. http://youtu.be/atTS5j7t0iI See the photos from the rescue today in our DropBox folder.   This morning a man who lives in the Enclave in Land O Lakes Florida got his morning cup of coffee and opened the blinds to his back yard to enjoy the natural view that he has since his cul-de-sac home backs up to a long corridor of power lines.  A four foot high fence, made of a material often referred to as hog fencing, Read More
