Spying on Manny in his den with all of his toys that he is hoarding.

Big Cat Updates

SUMMARY:  Wrist band winners, Beacher update video, Cats on the move, Cat updates, Ugly Christmas Sweater, WHAT did Manny Jaguar do that has keepers in stitches?, Geronimo’s new den, Narla Office Kitty says CHEESE!, LOTS of Keeper Corner photos, & more.

Will Bobcat has been moved back into the hospital for observation

Beacher has been cleared for additional Enrichment goodies as he is now off quarantine.

Manny Jaguar lives between Reise and Sundari.  While on quarantine Jamie will be the one feeding him.  Quarantine usually lasts 30 days during which time he has his own set of cleaning tools and the only people who will clean his area are those trained in quarantine procedures.

Natalie the Amur leopard is here and lives between Kricket and Jinx. She will also be on quarantine for 30 days.

We are trying to get Hoover to eat in his lockout, so his breakfast is put in there.  When he does not eat all his breakfast he will still get fed in the afternoon/evening.

Jamie is researching places for Teuci’s upcoming release back into the wild.

It is refreshing to have an ongoing dialogue with Manny and Nat’s former caregivers.  they have provided us with info and even videos on their care so we can be consistent with these two new residents.

Cats on the Move

  • Sundari we home from FunCation
  • Pharaoh is in FunCation.

Narla, The BCR Office Kitty – Keeper Afton – Narla, smile for the camera. “Cheese!”

Keeper Afton moved her office into Chelsea’s former office because Chelsea moved to a new office.  LOL Musical offices.  Narla seems to enjoying being the office kitty.  She has a bell on her collar so office staff always knows where she is. She seems very happy and getting a lot of visitors and attention. She only gets healthy treats. Narla likes trying to “share” Afton’s lunch everyday, too.
