Cat Health Updates

As of last night, Charaka and Hoover the tigers are still not eating on their own.  Their care team is being very diligent in their efforts to get these two boys to eat.  We will keep you posted.

 

Happy Monday!

 


 Foster Kitten Update

Note to Interns & Keepers who are fostering kittens.

Tonight after midnight:

Jupiter
Mars
Neptune
Venus
I will need them in a crate in the Cabana and ready to go first thing in the morning. Please weigh and record as usual. If any of them fall below 2 lbs, they cannot go in. Please let me know right away if this is the case.
Please have a cage sanitized and ready for a mom with 6 two week old kittens that I will be bringing back. Please have it set up with food, water, litter and a heating pad along with the blankets.
 If you do not have a working heating pad, Id like you to get one from the Kitten Cabana or Modglin house and let me know. Please let me know which cage you will have set up so that I know where to take them.
