Keeper’s Log

Priya Tiger ate a big dinner tonight and is taking her meds.  She will be on confined cage rest for several more weeks.

Nirvana is eating, taking her meds and NOT vomiting.

Josie Cougar is insisting that someone sit with her while she eats.  We may have to install a visual screen so she can’t see the cougar family next door.

We would like to thank Natural Detox Nutrition Shoppe for gifting our staff, interns, and volunteers an amazing catered vegan Thanksgiving spread last night. It was delightful and we highly recommend them. Carole liked it so much she immediately placed her Thanksgiving Day order for today.

If we had this sort of food available for purchase at Big Cat Rescue, would it be worth the drive to Citrus Park and down our quarter mile dirt road to get it?  We’d really like to know if this would be a viable venture for us to take on with the kind folks at Natural Detox Nutrition Shoppe.  Let us know in the comments.
