Gabrielle Tiger

Big Cat Updates

Happy 22nd birthday to Gabby the pocket tiger! Why do we call Gabrielle Tiger the pocket tiger you may ask? She is one of our tiniest tigers and it’s a loving nickname her favorite Keepers had given her shortly after her arrival to BCR.

Coordinator Report – Lauren Buckingham

Great Monday, today! Ivermectin day but all the cats cooperated.  Steph C got food prep done before lunch.  We sent out two 3:00 PM tours thanks to Denny, Alyssa E, Holly, and Wendy.  With food prep done, it meant the interns were free to work on projects this afternoon.

Vanessa, Holly, and Susana helped with the Educational tour mid-morning.  Intern Fred is back for level 4. He passed his map test this morning.

The interns raked around the exterior of the Texas tigers’ enclosure, whilst I and MC installed new water bowls and removed sawgrass from around the ponds.

Work was started on Zucari‘s enclosure, the bubble next to Gilligan is finished and the next one along has been started.

Picky cats ate well for the most part.

BethAnn made sure the ‘sicle cats got their afternoon treats.

MC did the PM snack cats and supplements

Max Bobcat is back outside, he is still separated from Mary Ann for the time being.

We had a great surprise of a pizza lunch delivered for all the volunteers….it put everyone in a great mood for the afternoon!

Thank you to everyone that came in today to help!

Nikita Lioness – Did You Know? If you have a Roku you can watch Big Cat Rescue’s video. Surf new channels for your Roku and look for the “Big Cat TV” channel. The icon has a lion on it. Can you tell if that lion icon is Cameron before he lost his mane or if it is Joseph? Let us know which you think it is.

Did you know? You can buy treats for your kitties at home and a portion of the sale is donated to Big Cat Rescue to help care the big cats. Howie uses 3 freeze-dried minnows to put the harnesses on. Pearlie says it’s a good bribe. https://coleandmarmalade.com/little-cats-helping-big-cats/
