Saying Goodbye to Andre Tiger
It’s very rare that a cat passes on their own here, as there are usually late stage medical issues that cause us to be on constant vigil which usually ends in us having to make the decision to end a cat’s suffering. While Andre was getting special meals every day to make sure he ate enough, he appeared to be quite comfortable, right to the end. Just recently we watched him enjoying Valentine’s Day enrichment. (see video) His passing also gave Amanda time to process it, and she had already moved to the enclosure next door when we discovered and removed him. You can leave tributes to him at http://bigcatrescue.org/andre/

Videos of the Day
Natalia is an Amur Leopard, the rarest cat species in the world. She is 17 years old and came to her forever home, here at Big Cat Rescue, in 2017. There are only around 100 Amur Leopards left in the wild and the future of the species is uncertain, as they balance on the brink of extinction. We do not believe these cats should live in cages, but because Natalia was born and raised in captivity, she can never be released back into the wild. Now she is at Big Cat Rescue she will join us in educating the public about the plight of her species and advocating for her wild counterparts.

You can donate to the cats at NO COST TO YOU when you select BCR as your charity on Amazon Smile and shop Smile.Amazon.com instead of Amazon.com. It is exactly the same as regular Amazon EXCEPT when you use the Smile URL Amazon donates .5% of your purchase to BCR. It’s added up to over $89,000 for the cats! Please visit BigCatRescue.org/amazon-smile for how to sign up and let us know you did so we can thank you. 🙂
