Big Cat Updates
Lovey Bobcat is doing well. Keepers have plenty of enrichment goodies prepared and on hand to give her as a distraction if she starts looking for him. She was truly the most independent of the two.
Amanda is locked in the roofed section of the vacation enclosure.

Thank you to Kristen, Jeff, Rich, Babs, Becky, Barbara Ann, and Amanda for coming in today to clean and feed! Rich gave the feeding tour with the help of Bridget Sardone. Becky gave the keeper tour. Kristen trained Jeff on cleaning small cat enclosures. Babs trained Barbara Ann on cleaning leopard section.
Thank you to interns Abby and Mazz for helping us clean. Abby and Mazz also mowed Dutchess' enclosure while the rest of the interns gave tours. Babs cleaned the keeper cabin, Rich handed out supplements and fixed the golf cart and the keeper gate. Barbara Ann and Amanda did their weekly stick picking up.
Lots of appreciation for everyone for working so hard today. Another beautiful day at Big Cat Rescue!
How is Lovey Bobcat?
Many of you have been asking how Lovey is doing with Thurston's absence.
Lovey has always been the most independent of the duo. She is doing fine. However, as a precaution, the Enrichment Team has made sure there is a good stockpile of goodies such as spice bags, scented tubes, and various flavored sicles for keepers to give to our sweet Lovey any time they notice her seeming to look for her beloved Thurston.
We assure you she is getting plenty of attention, snacks, and enrichment. THANK YOU for caring about this precious precious girl!!
