Big Cat Updates

Gale’s Coordinator Report for July 6, 2017

Jasmine is back in her two center cages on tiger row. Sapphire and Hoover have traded ends.

Reise is back in her cage and Sassy cougar is in FunCation.

Andy Tiger said, “no thank you” to the idea of going for a ride out the Vacation Rotation.

Ares and Orion are in the Vacation Rotation, but Artemis is still in the regular cage by the staff office. Keepers, please visit with her so she doesn’t get to lonely.  We wanted Artemis to go on vacation but she refused.

Cheetaro saw the vet. today and had some teeth pulled so he is overnighting in the recovery hospital.

We had a very busy day to say the least!!!!

Mickey Cougar’s enclosure has multiple sections/bubbles.  There is now a live streaming web cam added in his favorite section.  Mickey has recently had some mild seizures and has had a couple bad teeth removed.  We had volunteers sitting outside his enclosure to watch him but have now installed a live web cam so YOU can help us watch Mickey.  https://video.nest.com/live/JmCWXdpxWh


The Unsolved Mystery of Desiree Serval
Desiree serval was rescued in 2009 after being found dehydrated in the Arizona desert. We were told she was a 3-legged female serval, but we have had our suspicions that she may actually be a boy. Watch and find out.


When Mickey Cougar and Desiree Serval go to see the vet there is a surprise ending! Carole combined, condensed, and nararted Mickey and Desi’s vet day.
