Natasha

Natasha the lynx was rescued from being turned into a fur coat 20 years ago. Since then she has lived in progressively larger cages, but has never had an unobstructed view of the sky. This may be her last year on this earth. Would you give her the chance to see the stars above and bask in the sun, in an enclosure that measures in acres rather than sq feet?

Goodbye to Willow the Siberian Lynx   Female Siberian Lynx DOB 5/6/94 1/3/2013 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 6/1/94   Willow (on right) was born at a fur farm in Canada. We had bought all of the kittens the farm had and they were shipped here in crates so small that the kittens could not move. The little wire crates appeared to be full of sticky, smelly gray fur. We opened the crates and pulled out the contents, and found a group of soiled, starving, sick and stressed little kittens. None of them died in transit, which was Read More
