- Keisha! … You can see more clearly in this pic that she’s missing part of her left ear, we believe this was due to sharing a common wall with neighboring lions at the facility we rescued her from. #tiger #rescued #sanctuary #bigcatrescue #bigcats
- HUGE NEWS! Big Cat Rescuers rescued 3 starving and severely neglected tigers yesterday from a dilapidated pseudo-sanctuary in New York…. JnK Call of the Wild was finally shut down by authorities yesterday when they seized close to 20 exotic animals. The 3 tigers that will now call Big Cat Rescue home – Keisha, Kimba and Zeus — are on their way here right now! http://ift.tt/1k0LtjQ

- In honor of their chosen acrobatics, let’s see how tigers stack up: They’re the largest of any big cat Their roar can be heard for over a mile They hunt nocturnally The patterns on their coats help them hide from their prey There are six different species of tiger (some severely endangered) It has been estimated that there are as many as 10,000 tigers owned by private owners throughout the US Help put a stop to exotic animal ownership and leave these creatures a place in the wild by supporting Big Cat Rescue today!
- DIABLO is a savannah cat (domestic cat bred with wild serval) this cross breeding is not only cruel to the animals involved it also produces confused offspring that make terrible “pets” #savannahcat #bengal #hybrids #cats
