Big Cat Updates

In today's update you will find a Shout Out to UNILAD, Project request, Keeper Corner photos of Seth, and more.

4/10/2017 Monday

Arthur went into the hospital but is back outside.

Feeding slabs in Josephs two lockouts were raised. The enclosures were grass seeded, lockouts sprayed and safety gates updated.

Today was the first day of panacur...everyone did well.

Picky's all ate okay. Hoover even took his panacur with his PM meal from his lockout....success!

Have a great evening!

Shout Out to UNILAD!

A huge shout out to the animal loving folks at UNILAD. When their first version of this video had more than 17 million views, we asked them to create a version for us that would send viewers to take action to end this abuse.

They quickly edited the video to add a call to action slide at the end inviting people to roar out for these cubs and forgotten lions and tigers at BigCatAct.com  Have you made the Call of the Wild yet?  Do it today and then share this video with others and let them know how they can make a difference for big cats.

Calling All Artists

Project Request

Another viewer has made a request and Carole suggested asking all of you.

This shirt is not ours, but we would like to have something similar to this except featuring YOUR favorite cats from BCR.  The finished item would need to be a high resolution file so it would print well on t-shirts etc.

If you would be interested in making a graphic like this for us to use on shirts etc email me at lawanna.mitchell@bigcatrescue.org with the list of five cats you would like to use.

Keeper Corner

Keeper MaryLou G:  Sending Seth on the lookout for food!

Seth was peacefully lounging on his platform when Keeper MaryLou went by.

In a flash Seth sprung to his feet, leaped of the platform and ran to see what one of his favorite keepers, MaryLou was carrying.

WAIT - Is that food?

Viewer Photos

Viewer  Donna Morefield:  Tongue Out Tuesday

Viewer Joyce Fitch:  G. Gordon Kitty approves tiger sweatshirt - I love the Tiger hoodie that I got from BCR - so soft. As you can see G. Gordon Kitty (Liddy Kitty) loves it too. He’s 18 so he gets first choice to “wear” it.

Note to Viewers:  To see which tiger sweat shirt G. Gordon Kitty is 'wearing' go to:  https://catrescue.myshopify.com/search?type=product&q=tiger+sweatshirt  All profits from that gift shop goes to support our legislative efforts to end big cat abuse.

Viewer Scotti Cohn: I cannot be held responsible for the loudness of the collective "Awwwwwww!" that issues from those who view this photo.

Viewer Cathy Ryan:  My cat, Angel, watching Zabu.
