Big Cat Rescue’s First Sunday Open

Thorny Project Completed


Thanks to Gale, Chelsea, Lauren and all of the Interns we were able to cut away all of the dead Bougainvillea from Moses and Bailey's cage, and most of it from DesPurrado and Little Dove's cage. 

I was just amazed at the tornado of energy and high spirits that swept through this daunting task and cleared the way for our gorgeous, flowering canopy to again reach up for sunlight.  

For those of you who are new, this is what the Bougainvillea looked like before the hard 2010 freezes killed them. 

There was ice cream for everyone afterward and we will try to keep the freezers in the Cooling Station and Volunteer Check Point stocked with frozen treats so that all of you who work so hard for the cats can treat yourselves. 

Thanks everyone who made our first Sunday of being open to the public such a productive and pleasurable one.

For the cats,
