Big Cat Updates
- Pharaoh Serval was limping yesterday. He will require cage rest and observation for a few days. Since the Recovery Hospital is full he is in the bobcat rehab hospital.
- Hoover Tiger spent the night in the transport cage under very close observation. This morning he went into the hospital’s outdoor recovery cage. He ate 3.5 pounds for breakfast this morning and took his pain meds. He is up walking around, eating and drinking.
- Mary Ann Bobcat absolutely hates being in the hospital. She is starting to eat and doing well.
- King Tut’s mass was benign. He is eating, picky as usual but eating.
- Sky Bobcat and her babies are doing well. Watch them on the LIVE Streaming Bobcat Rehab webcam at Explore.org/bigcatrescue or get the direct link at BigCatCams.com

LIVE Stream Webcam on Hoover in the Recovery Hospital’s outside cage.
Hoover Tiger now has a LIVE Streaming webcam in the hospital’s outside recovery cage so you can help us keep an eye on him. THANK YOU, EVERYONE, who donated during his procedure yesterday. Keeping the hospital stocked with whatever we may need for the cats’ medical needs gets expensive and your donations really helped. THANK YOU!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Hoover Tiger
We have a lot to celebrate today! Help us wish HOOVER TIGER a very Happy 15th Birthday! Today is also the 3 year anniversary of Hoover’s arrival to Big Cat Rescue!

Bobcat Rehab Update
Not much to report this morning. Sky stayed in the den with the kittens almost all night. It seems like she wants the kittens in the den, if she hears them or sees them coming out she runs back into the den with them. She came out a couple of times for just a very short time, just to look around and check things out. She just came out again and this time she saw Alpha running around over there and was desperately trying to find a way out along the fence facing Alpha. Digging in the water dish area and along the fence. She didn’t do it for very long though before she went back into the den. I did catch glimpses of her and the babies in the den while they slept overnight. ~CamOp Kristine Metzner
