Coordinator Report – Erin Carden

Today was a sad day with the loss of our sweet Thurston.

Thank you to everyone who came in and worked so hard to get it all done today.

The last day of Pancur was an overall success.

Nisha, Justin, Elizabeth, and Erin A. cleaned up one side of Moses and Bailey Bobcat and gave them topsoil and grass seed to grow.

In the afternoon Fred, Justin, Elizabeth, Erin A., and Mazz picked up sticks around the sanctuary, weed eated and cleaned up the “be the cat” cage for our guests.

Thanks, everyone, again for all your help today!

Saying Goodbye to Thurston a.k.a. Mr. Howell

We are shocked and beyond heartbroken to let you know our precious bobcat Thurston AKA Mr. Howell had a massive seizure this afternoon and died. I can hardly type this through my tears. He was sedated on Monday so Dr. Justin could biopsy a lump on his ankle, and he was neutered. He seemed to be recovering well; he ate and took his meds yesterday. But he refused them this morning so our Operations Managers Kathryn and Afton were keeping a close eye on him and saw him having a small seizure. They were on the phone with our vet discussing it when he had the massive seizure. There was nothing that could be done. Though it must have been horrible to witness, we’re comforted that Kathryn and Afton were with Thurston so he wasn’t alone when he left this earth. Run free beautiful boy. We will take good care of your Lovey.
