Coordinator Report – Sue Messineo
Chilly day today, but beautiful! We had lots of tours and were able to add one in the afternoon. Rich and Barbara Ann gave the feeding tour. Barbara Ann got her last sign off to speak the tour. Alyssa gave the keeper tour.
Thanks to Becky, Amanda, and Andrew for getting food prep done. Barbara Ann and Kristen went around and picked up sticks. Dylan ran a USF workgroup and they finished cleaning up Zimba Serval’s enclosure and Maya Cougar’s old enclosure.
Most picky cats ate okay today. The cats all enjoyed the cool weather.
THANK YOU, from the Enrichment Team
A shout out to everyone who helped out enrichment team with the supplies we needed. Thank you so very much!!!! – Afton
Here at Big Cat Rescue, we take Enrichment for these majestic cats quite seriously. These cats were meant to live wild and free. Captivity is boring for such intelligent beings. Therefore, keeping their minds and bodies active is a daily challenge. It takes a whole team of creative, energetic, motivated volunteers to keep enough enrichment made every week to ensure the cats always have something fun to play with.
So, as you can imagine the Enrichment Team goes through a TON of supplies.

Hutch Serval always has an opinion. I wonder what he is thinking in this photo.
