Male Siberian/Bengal Tiger Hybrid
TJ was the youngest of four tigers who were rescued in 2007 from a breeding facility in Center Hill Florida called Savage Kingdom. He is quite playful and loves to crash through all of the high grasses in his enclosure. TJ has a particular fascination with water and will splash in and out of his pools or the pond, when he is on vacation in the Vacation Rotation enclosure. He seems to delight in the way the light moves on the surface of splashing water.

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

You will often see her with her tongue hanging out as a result.

Amanda is the most timid of the three tigers.
She is very shy and six months after her rescue will still slink away to hide when people approach her enclosure.
She is being worked with daily through the operant conditioning program to build a trusting relationship between her and her Keepers.
The operant conditioning program is a critical tool used at the sanctuary to ensure the cats in our care are comfortable and happy.

Mary Ann is approximately four years old and was bottle raised from a kitten. We were told that she may suffer from short range vision, however, this has not been confirmed.
Mary Ann was kept in a cage about 5' x 10'. Her cage was absolutely filthy, feces and meat scraps had piled up for months. She had two small plastic dog houses, one of which was broken in half and filled with urine. The other which she used for shelter from the rain and snow was filled with small Read More
