Coordinator Report – Devin Saari
Awesome Tuesday today!
We were able to start projects early today since we had a good amount of volunteers to feed and clean. The interns and Karla Pinzon worked in Des’s enclosure in the morning and were able to finish it. Des now has full access to his enclosure. Also, the interns finished raking down the tour path towards Diablo
Mazz Amiratz smashed food-prep in the afternoon and the other interns that were not on tours worked in Kali’s new enclosure making it nice for her return from vacation. Marie Schoubert and Cindy Kuhareky did the cicle cats. Enrichment and Operant were done today right before lunch which was a nice break for everyone. A full meat inventory was completed today thanks to Mazz Amirat
Thank you to everyone who worked hard in the heat!
Have You Met Little Flint?
Flint was examined yesterday morning. His X-rays were sent out to be evaluated by a specialist. Surprisingly he has no broken bones. It does appear as though there is soft tissue trauma around his lungs and in his left front paw. He had no outward wounds. He has been started on a course of pain medication and steroids. We will monitor him closely for the next several days for improvement. Thank you, everyone, who donated beds, toys, and scratching posts. It made setting up a recovery cage for this little guy a breeze. Learn more at BigCatRescue.org/flint/

Photos for the Day
Afton Tasler – We recently cleaned up Thurston and Lovey’s enclosure, and when he opened the doors to let them back in, Thurston started rolling around. I guess that’s a bobcat’s way of saying thank you.
Afton Tasler – I just love Beacher the Savannah Cat’s all black nose!
Jamie Veronica – Ares Cougar is such a jokester 😉
