Purr-sonality

  PURR-SONALITY Female Serval DOB 1/1/95 As with many of the servals we have at Big Cat Rescue, PURRsonality seems to enjoy the daily attention she gets from her volunteer keepers. She eagerly plays with any enrichment items that are given to her to break up the monotony of life in captivity. She can be seen batting spice bags around and rubbing and rubbing them until the scent has completely disappeared. As with most of our servals, this is the type of playful, non-threatening behavior you’ll see from them during the Read More

Nala Serval

  Nala Female Serval DOB appx 1/1/10 Rescued 1/5/13   A man called on Dec. 13 and I called him back the same day and told him we would take his father’s serval if he would contract to never own another exotic cat.

  CYBIL Female Serval DOB 5/22/96   Cybil had a back leg that was fractured beyond repair and it healed very crooked. It was thought that someday we would have the leg removed, but she hops around just fine and the leg has not atrophied as expected. She is probably one of the meanest Servals that lives at Big Cat Rescue. She always greets with a hiss (as shown in this photo).

Ginger

Ginger Female serval Appx. DOB 1/1/2009 Rescued on  5/5/2013   Ginger is approximately four years old and was bottle raised from a kitten. She did not have a name, so in keeping with the Gilligan's Island theme she was named Ginger. Ginger was kept in a cage about 9' x 12'. On one side of her two cougars were housed and on the other was an empty cage about half the size of hers. That empty cage housed another serval who died a few months before the rescue. Sadly the serval had become wedged in between the door panels and Read More

Her owner Read More
