Additional Keeper Notes:
Hoover now has full access to his enclosures.
Sabre went home from vacation, watch the video of that below.
Cheetaro is now in the Fun-cation enclosure, watch the video of his first steps into his vacation adventure in the video below.
Purrfection Ocelot caught an opossum during the night. Morning keepers found it missing its face, foot and tail.
There are currently 77 cats here.
Keeper Brittany reported: Desiree was laying in her feeding lockout when I went to clean. She stayed there staring at me like I was going to feed her then she slowly walked away so I could clean. Didn’t seem like her. Around here it doesn’t take much for a cat to end up on the Animal Observation Sheet..
Did You Know? Desiree was found wandering in the desert with only three legs? Click on her name to read her incredible story of survival.
Keeper Bridget Reported:
Priya seems to finally be relaxing here at Big Cat Rescue. She came out of her den for my tour yesterday afternoon and stretched quite comfortably.

VIDEO TWO: Hoover Calling For TJ
This video is borrowed from “Greyfort 7” it was uploaded June 12, 2016. This video was recorded from the Explore.org/bigcatrescue Tiger Lake cam on night vision. Hoover is hanging out in the lake calling for TJ.
This video is a great example of why we choose to not lock our cats up inside at night as many facilities do. Wild cats are active at night and want to be outside. A lot of facilities lock their big cats inside rooms called “night houses” at night where instead of enjoying the night air and night sounds and doing what cats like to do they are forced to spend the night in a concrete cell with walls and bars to look at. Any time you visit an animal facility ask them where the cats go at night. Ask if you can see the cats ‘night house’ if they say no, ask why.
These two coloring pages are from a very special coloring book made specifically for us for an even called “March For Lions” a few years back by Pawstels artist, Melissa from Pawstels.com
