Cat Updates

Will Bobcat didn't eat yesterday or today so Dr Justin has been called to come look at him.

Sheena Serval does not eat red meat so she gets a lot of fish and shrimp.

Zimba Moved to a new enclosure with several sections.   Zimba walked right into the the transport cage and and enjoyed the 'ride' to his new enclosures.  Once there he did not hesitate to walk right out of the transport and immediately begin exploring his HUGE, HUGE, HUGE new digs in between Ginger and Desiree.  He has dens with hay, dens without hay.  He has platforms, places to hide, lots of sunshine and shade.  He did however, take time out to get a couple hisses in at the girl next door.  A fella just has to show off.  See this on the Facebook Live Video Replay below.

Hoover is doing well.

Big Cat Rescue has learned that notorious magician Jay Owenhouse (pictured here) plans to hold a magic show featuring his tiger act on the campus of the University of Missouri this Saturday evening. Owenhouse claims to train his tigers using "positive reinforcement" and says his "tigers probably live more comfortably than some people." How is being forced to perform unnatural acts comfortable for tigers? It's NOT. Please take action by emailing UM leaders below and asking them to CANCEL THE MAGIC SHOW WITH TIGERS.
