- Less than 24 hours remain until the ROARING Big Cat Leap!! Tomorrow, five of the sanctuary’s interns will be jumping from 15,000 feet to raise money to help fund construction of a new hospital for the magnificent creatures that call Big Cat Rescue home. The Big Cat Intern team has raised an amazing $5337.00 (thanks to generous BCR supporters!) towards helping fund the estimated $100,000 cost of the new hospital. (Building, 3 Phase Power Supply, Permits, etc.) Please donate whatever you can towards this amazing cause and be part of saving the lives of big cats. http://ift.tt/1ohlp0b You can also mail or drop off your donation at Big Cat Rescue, 12802 Easy Street, Tampa, Fl, 33625. Donations of $500 or more will be recognized via a sign and ceramic tile that will be installed at the sanctuary. The sanctuary’s donor recognition signs and tiles are viewed by 32,000 annual visitors, a great way to promote your business. The sanctuary will also be recognizing all of our large donors via the sanctuary’s media outlets, which collectively reach over 2 million people. Thank you from the cats!
- Bailey bobcat – http://ift.tt/1u903bh Bailey’s mother was possibly a native Florida Bobcat who was killed in Odessa. That or she was a pet that was abandoned. Lost and alone little Bailey wandered out in search of the mother who would never return and was discovered by a local woman about the same time as she was being discovered by a hawk. The woman rushed to her rescue and thinking she was a feral cat, she called the animal shelter. The woman called Big Cat Rescue to see if there was anything we could do to save the tiny kitten, who was only about 5 or 6 weeks old, from being euthanized. We picked her up and will provide her with a home for the rest of her expected 20 years. Use the link to learn more.

- The large, wide-spreading feet of the Canadian Lynx are covered in fur, which act like snowshoes, and are effective in supporting the cat’s weight on the snow. They are often confused with their smaller feline cousins the Bobcat, but can be easily distinguished by their tail tips. The tail of the Lynx looks as though it was dipped in an inkwell being black all the way around, whereas the Bobcat’s tail appears to have been painted black on top and white on the bottom.
