Big Cat Updates
HIP HIP HURRAY!!! Gerty is working again!! Gerty is one of the golf carts that has a bit of a hauling bed on the back. We need Gerty for hauling small things around the sanctuary and during daily cleaning etc.
Regardless of the rain, the cats got their beloved daily sicles thanks to Victoria and Marie.

Coordinator Report – Lauren Grant
Very rainy day today! Thank you to everyone who came out and helped today!
Hutch was brought home from Funcation and Priya was brought home from Vacation. Victor mowed both and the interns weed-eated as much of both as they could before the rain got to be too much. Ginger is now out in Funcation and Kali is in Vacation. Priya has access to her enclosure and Kali’s.
Because of the rain, some inside projects were done. The interns and Taylor Tyree scrubbed the gift shop floor. Erin, Erin, Nisha, & Justin stayed in the gift shop to help organize some of the stock rooms. Mazz & Vito went through the small tupperwares and got rid of a lot of lids without bottoms. Abbey, Brooklynne, & Kate weed-eated around food prep and the dirt piles when the rain had subsided for a bit.
Taylor also took her cleaning class today so she can start training.
And the big news: Gerty is working again!! To keep her working, we’re making sure only a driver and passenger ride on her, and no one sits on the cargo area.
Thanks, everyone for a great, productive day!
