Keisha Tiger wants to know "what do you have in that bucket? and is it FOR ME?

Big Cat Updates

Coordinator Report – Kathryn Stapleton

Great day today! We were a bit short-handed but as usual, everyone pitched in and got it done.

Tanya Chute did food prep and a Private Tour.  Desmond Fowles, Michael Heap, Fred Pagan, and MaryLou Geis got all the big cats cleaned.  Dylan Lavigne helped train Caity Farr.  Phyllis Middaugh helped get small cats cleaned.

Des also made sure everyone got cicles. It turned into a warm afternoon. Michael helped and basically took over a project to get the food prep wet table working again.

During tours, Fred and Tanya finished up Kali’s cage so she can go home tomorrow.  After tours, all the interns help get all the miscellaneous stuff off the cleaning pad in front and around food prep put away.

That’s it for me !

Virtual Zoo – A Volunteer’s Thoughts

We all have one thing in common… we want FREEDOM for Big Cats! We want to see them run wild and free where they belong! I don’t know about you, but I was raised with the belief that Big Cats and other species were in captivity for conservation purposes. Sadly, we tend to believe in the most common notion society has to offer as being “normal”.

When Big Cat Rescue first started to show us the 360 videos, I found them to be quite difficult to watch. The image was fuzzy, and I could not always find the cat! Today, that changed for me, and I want to share this with all of you as well!

I believe in the mission to go virtual and eliminate the need for the cats to be held captive for our entertainment and so-called education. What exactly have we learned from our beloved cats at Big Cat Rescue? We have seen firsthand, that the places that held them captive before their rescue, were almost always due to human greed. We have learned that the sacrifices made by these cats without their having chosen it, has caused them irreparable damage to their health, happiness, and quality of life.

Are you ready to change the future for their species? Would you be willing to take one simple step forward in teaching our future generations to love and respect these cats from afar? Virtual Reality can and will be an incredible tool in helping us stand strong and teach our children and families the truth!

Simply follow these three steps, and you will go wild in no time!

Step 1: Go to your app store and download VidPic AR app for free! It does not require any accounts or personal information and is very easy to navigate!

Step 2: Open up the following link: BigCatRescue.org/ar-zoo/ where you can see two examples of our gorgeous cats in poster form

Step 3: Open the app on your phone or tablet and point the camera at the Big Cat Poster where you will push play and see the cats come to life!

My children were absolutely amazed to see this happen! It gave me the opportunity to explain to them why this was the way we wanted to view them!

I challenge you to download VidPic AR and give this a try! Watching the 360 Videos has become an enlightening and cheerful moment that I was able to share with my girls!

Keeper Afton – I love how Cameron always finds the sunny places to take a nap. I spend a lot of time with this boy and have learned a lot from him and Joseph over the years. I’ve learned that lion boys are VERY stubborn. They have a lot of love to give, but they are very choosy on who they give that love to. Cameron is much pickier than Joseph was, but being someone who was chosen by both of them feels like such an honor!! It is such a special feeling, and it fills my heart with so much love! 🦁❤️

    I’d not read Sasha’s story before…Carole, you’re so intune with the cats spirits, Sasha let you know she was leaving, and you should be proud she was close enough to honor you so. I know Joseph must have missed her so, while I met Joseph, I was not lucky enough to meet Sasha. I know they are together again now, waiting for the day, long long in the future, when they will welcome you to Rainbow Bridge, and you can pet and ruffle their fur, hug them like you always wanted to, and kiss their noses! 🙂
