Big Cat Updates
Have everyone asked a friend to go to VoteCats.com today to vote for Big Cat Rescue?
Today's Facebook Live Video Replays are the cats getting Valentine Enrichment, so get ready to HAVE FUN watching them.
We usually move cats to and from vacation on Thursdays, however, we cannot move cats today.
Gabrielle's home cages still needs raked & deep cleaned. While a cat is away on vacation we often open their cages up for another cat to have extra space, like a mini vacation. Then the cage needs raked and cleaned before the vacationing cat can come home. We are hoping to get Gabrielle's home cages all cleaned and raked today and ready for her to go home tomorrow.
Reise cannot go home today because the guys are still finishing the build on Sundari's new cage addition. The tunnel that Reise needs to go through will be attached to Sundari's new cage so Reise gets an extra vacation day giving the guys time to finish Sundari's new cage addition.
There are quite a few today. Watch the cats getting fun goodies to play with. Enrichment is very important for a cat's mental, emotional, and physical health. The cats get daily Enrichment but on Thursdays. when the sanctuary is closed they get bigger Enrichment goodies. We are closed on Thursdays so the keepers can focus on large projects, moving cats, and giving the cats the larger Enrichment goodies. If you enjoy these videos, PLEASE invite your friends to see them as well.

Nova was diagnosed with hook worms and is being treated for that. She is being treated but cannot go outside to the rehab enclosure until she is cleared of those. The keepers have set up additional space for her and given her another cat tree and some more toys. You can watch her live streaming web cam at https://video.nest.com/live/B7C7VpSW4b
