 Cheetaro’s 19th Birthday

Silver made a BEAUTIFUL Birthday Photo for Cheetaro!  Silver also made a BEAUTIFUL photo collage to promote Cheetaro’s Birthday Project.

 International Tiger Day is July 29th

Great News! With about 10 days left until INTERNATIONAL TIGER DAY JULY 29TH, we are less than $1000 from meeting our goal of donating $10,000 to the Corbett Foundation’s important work protecting wild tigers, leopards and lions in India from falling into open farm wells!!

If you’d like to honor our beloved TJ tiger while helping to save wild tigers, please consider making an International Tiger Day purchase at Tigers911.com

Big Cat Rescue will donate the profit from all purchases of our International Tiger Day merchandise and any donations made on the ITD merchandise page — plus we will MATCH THE PROFIT DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR up to $5000. The money will be used to construct chain-link fences around the wells (cost is about $100 per well) to keep big cats from falling into these very deep wells and drowning. About 2500 of these open farm wells exist, many in the core zone of the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve.

Plus you’ll have a chance to win an original paw print painting when you post a photo of yourself on July 29th on our Facebook page with your TJ tiger International Tiger Day merchandise!

THANK YOU to everyone who has already purchased our ITD merchandise and made donations!

 Where’s Waldo .. Uh.. I mean the tiger?

This fun “Where’s Waldo” style photo and adorable poem is from Susann Mesna; she is one who makes so many of the great Explore.org/bigcatrescue video clips we all enjoy watching.

Come closer and see
See into the trees
Find the tiger
If you can
Come closer and see
See into the dark
Just follow your eyes
Just follow your eyes

LOL, Susann, this one was HARD!  I almost had to ask for help.

 Viewer Videos From Explore.org/bigcatrescue

Shawna Prested got a really cute clip of Max and MaryAnn playing.  When the kittens are not n the Kitten Cabana their cam points out the window toward a small section of Max and MaryAnna’s set of cages.

Max and MaryAnn enjoying some quality wrestling on their new coolaroo beds. This went on for over 20 minutes, but I can only record 10 at a time. This is shot through several fences, so it’s a little blurry. ~Shawna
