Angie Gabor’s Coordinator Report for Saturday’ 12/30/17
WOW!!! What a wonderful day at Big Cat Rescue!!! Lots of AMAZING volunteers that worked really hard cleaning, feeding and doing tours.
We had approximately 404 guests today!!! Every tour I saw today was very lively and they had fun! So many people learning about the cats and issues facing big cats.
The cats were very frisky and playful today.
Picky eaters did a great job today!
Lots of feeding and cleaning sign-offs and a few map tests and classes were completed today also.
All and all an Amazing Day!!
Since the mornings are pretty chilly the kittens are not in the Kitten Cabana but are staying at home in the intern houses. If the afternoons warm up they can come then.
How Many Keepers Does It Take to feed a 21 year old, sick tiger and a grumpy lion?
After major surgery to repair three broken bones Noel sustained in a tangle with a car, she’s learning how to rock herself up onto the pinned bones and walk again.
Armani leopard has the most incredible eyes. Since becoming a senior keeper I have tried many times to get a pretty photo of her and she is notorious for squinting or looking away… but finally (I’m talking hundreds of try’s lol) I captured those beautiful blue eyes ❤️ so I think she is warming up to me! Armani LOVES enrichment and is very talkative to her keepers 😻https://bigcatrescue.org/armani/

Please do not be alarmed when you come to feed us tomorrow and our enclosure is empty. We have gone to rescue our Secretary from the 90+ inches of snow she has gotten in the past few days at Nueva North Pole (formerly known as Erie, PA).
We believe that she is going stir crazy(ier) in this horrible situation, and we feel we must go. As you can see from the photo, we have the equipment and are ready to be on our way. Please prepare an enclosure for her to stay in when we arrive back home to Big Cat Rescue. If there is not an empty enclosure for her, she can stay with us until suitable accommodations can be provided.
We have two feeding lockouts on our enclosure, so Cam and I will share one and the Secretary can use the other. Please note that she likes her meat well done.
Thank you for your cooperation.

(P.S. Joseph says he thinks she should be introduced to his friend Pokey as soon as possible so that she gets the total experience. Seth and Andy are ready to share their gardening duties with her since they know she likes plants, and BillErnie is thrilled at the thought of another feeding lockout to stalk.)
I can’t remember if we showed you Noel’s x-rays or not. I think this is two angles of the back leg. I don’t have copies of the fore paw. The back leg was the hardest to repair because it’s so close to the end of the bone. Learn more about Noel at https://bigcatrescue.org/noel/
