Cat Updates

Cameron and Joseph do not like eating off the feeding stick and they like the food placed just right in their mouths so for them we often use tongs instead of the feeding stick.

1/25/2017 Joseph ate all of his morning food, plus he ate an additional couple pounds in the evening with his meds.

Note to Viewers:  You can get a lot of big cat updates by watching the Live Facebook Video  Replays below.

 Valspar Contest Update

As of 11 am, January 26, 2017 the cats had 7,787 votes at VoteCats.com

Reminder:  The cats could get about $1 per vote of the first 10,000 votes in the contest.  Currently the contest has a combined total of 8,812 votes.  Of those 8,812 votes the cats have 7,787.  That means that if the cats can get another 1,188 votes quickly they could get total of $8,975 for this first step of the contest.

ALSO, Please Note:  To win the $65,000 at the end of the overall contest the cats will still need several thousand more votes.  But for now, another 1,188 votes would be a great goal for this first hurdle in the contest.

Summary:  We NEED ALL of YOU actively sharing and asking others to vote for the cats.  We cannot do this without YOUR HELP!

This is a really great way to help the cats financially without it costing you a single penny.

With YOUR HELP, the cats can win up to $65,000!!


Ideas for What You Can DO

ONE: Share one of these photos frequently on your social media pages and a PURR-sonal note From YOU asking your friends and family to help you help the cats by voting for Big Cat Rescue at VoteCats.com


TWO:  Share this video frequently, add your own text specifically asking your friends to vote for Big Cat Rescue.

  • Link for Facebook and other social media pages:  
  • Embed code for webpages and blogs:   <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/aagoRRz5BtE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


THREE:  Do you belong to any clubs or organizations?  Do you work in an office or other setting with multiple co-workers?  Ask a friend there to help you organize a VoteCats.com "drive" to get all of your club members / co-workers to help you help us by voting for Big Cat Rescue at VoteCats.com

FOUR:  Do you have a blog or website?  Do you know a friend who has a blog or website?  Add the photos or the video above and challenge your viewers to vote and to share them as well.

FIVE:  Make it a goal to ask even just one friend each day to vote for the cats.

Again, we cannot accomplish this huge goal for the cats without YOUR continued help!

 Letter To Management


January 25, 2017


Dear Sir/Madam:

We have been receiving numerous complaints from residents of your facility, to wit:

-Nikita Lioness is being harassed with love notes and inappropriate pictures by Joseph (“Joe Jovi”) Lion;

-A live video stream of Max Bobcat was being shown without his knowledge or permission, and to make matters worse, said broadcast was actually from a Kitten Cam in California;

-Joseph Lion is being stalked by two squirrels, “Get Off My Nutz” and “Got Your Nutz”;

-Zabu Tigress is being slandered and being called fearless and “quite scrappy” by Joseph Lion;

-The Biscuits and Sapphire never get treats at 5 pm like the rest of their neighbors;

- No one will let Kali catch a golf cart;

- A certain Keeper has been cheating on TJ, and has forced him to go on a hunger strike in protest.

- Nikita Lioness is being bullied online; when she naps, she is being compared to a chicken and a walrus.

These complaints must be addressed immediately or we will be forced to take further action. Please note that our newest partner, formerly employed by MI6, is on-site and will be carefully monitoring this situation.


Iwanna Dopt. Morekatz, Partner
