Big Cat Updates
Today the vet will be sedating TJ Tiger to trim back an ingrown claw and update his blood work.
Sassy Cougar has been limping too, so she will be sedated to find out why and we will do a complete work up on her too.
If the cat isn't in the main room, check over in X-ray:

Jen R and Des led the keeper tour and the end was quite eventful - a young man proposed to his girlfriend in front of Seth and Andy. She said YES!
The two tigers approved and ended up eating all their diet.
Today we had a plethora of red shirts (Audry, Danielle, Lacy, Bridget, Stephanie, Diedra and Candice) so those who weren't cleaning worked on Anasazi and Will Bobcat's front bubble and with help of a couple interns, got that done before lunch. Four of them got quarantine cleaning signoffs from me.
Devin and Rebecca raked the area between TJ and Keisha but ultimately had to stop due to lightning strikes. Afternoon tours also ended a bit early due to storms.
Divinity is still eating well, took all meds and is extra spunky and feisty and ready to go home I think. Babycakes did finally eat some ground beef tonight so momma Becky is going to check on him last before we leave.
Cats ate well except for Keisha again. Mac did finally come out of big den in funcation and ate at PM meds time. And even Joseph ate in the rain!!
That's all - hope everyone had a great weekend. Lynda

It's Raining Volunteers and Love
It's Raining Volunteers and Love at Big Cat Rescue! Joseph Lion doesn't care. He's here to eat. Zeus Tiger is always happy for rain. Zabu the White Tiger stays in the den. Hoover Tiger would rather flirt than eat. Reise, Aspen, Mickey and Sassy Cougar all say "hello".
Volunteers at Big Cat Rescue are either Keepers or Partners, but even Partners can help with vet procedures in the Windsong Memorial Hospital because the cats are asleep.
Sometimes you have to fake it before you make it. Sassy Cougar pretends to be fearless, but we know she’s a bit scared, so we give her lots of room and places to stay out of view.
Being fearless is one of the most joyous qualities an individual can develop. If you nurture this characteristic within yourself then there are no limits to what you can achieve in life. So start to be more fearless in all of your pursuits because there really is nothing to fear. It is just a perceived outcome based on ones limited living.
So be fearless and go and create the life of your dreams. I hope this list of quotes inspires you to believe in yourself more and to live your life fearlessly.
“Be truthful, gentle and fearless.” Mahatma Ghandi
“The best way to be successful is to be fearless.” Janelle Osido
“Beneath every excuse lies a fear. Practice being fearless.” Robin Sharma
“You have to be fearless and take chances. Don’t live life fearing what comes next. That’s not what living is about.”
“Fate loves the fearless.” James Russell Lowell
“Have the fearless attitude of a hero and the loving heart of a child.” Soyen Shaku
“When you’re fearless, you take more risks because you’re less conscious of failure or what can go wrong.” Brett Ratner
“I had some fears as a kid, but I was also relatively fearless. Maybe that’s a result of living half the time in reality and the other half in fantasy.” Suzanne Vega
