We had new volunteer orientation today. Learn how YOU can volunteer http://bigcatrescue.org/get-involved/ OR, if you’d like to take the online version of our actual keeper training we created for our on-site volunteers you can do so at ZooCollege.com It is open to all ages and all education levels. It is $9 per month, cancel any time. There are three FREE LESSONS you can take with no obligation. Go check it out.
Joseph Lion didn’t want to eat in the rain today, so we will try him again later.
Keepers stayed on today and are working on getting a cage ready for Hoover tomorrow as the vet said he’ll probably be allowed to go back to an earthen floor.
Seth made it to the top of his den. Butt and tail hanging off the side so much he looked like he was going to slide off backwards. But he was so happy and proud of himself <3 Silly boy! ~Keeper LaurenB

If we can all keep up this momentum the cats stand a good chance of winning the next leg of the contest which could really make a big difference.
Again, THANK YOU for getting the cats this far. Please, know your efforts ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED!! We are really excited about the possibility of the cats winning this next round! With YOUR continued help, they can!
Do you think the cats could get another 300 votes before midnight?

Today’s Big Cat Challenge is just for fun. EVERYONE, who finds Seth January 29th gets a free hi-resolution digital photo of Seth Tiger (LOL, his face, not his tail). When YOU find Seth, email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply with your hi-res photo of Seth.
Where’s Waldo, Oops I Mean, Where’s Seth
Seth is excellent at playing hide and seek and other viewers have caught some interesting photos of him behind the foliage at various levels of difficulty. Have a good day! Shawna
This enclosure Seth is in has about 2 acres of space. It has clearings, lake access, two BIG dens, a roofed section, a massive non-roofed section, climbing platforms, and a good sized jungle like area. Seth has learned how to be an expert at hiding. However, the Cam Opps at Explore.org/bigcatrescue are really skilled at finding him, well at finding his tail anyway 😉
Note to Shawna: THANK YOU, Shawna, for sending this photo from Priti, one of the PAWSOME viewers at Explore.org/bigcatrescue
Note to Viewers: Do you want more “Where’s Waldo” type challenges?
