Dutchess on her throne ready to pounce at the next thing that crosses her path!

Big Cat Updates

Pebble Update: The necropsy findings are back. Negative for infectious diseases and rabies. She had fluid in her abdomen, chest, and even in her brain (the cause of the neurological symptoms). All a result of multiple organ failure and complications due to prolonged starvation.

The stray rat who has been stealing food from the rehab bobcat kittens has been captured.

Coordinator Report – Afton Tasler

Good day, today!

Diablo’s enclosure closest to Illithia was cleaned. Illithia did really well during the project. She even ate in from of them while they were working. She is doing so well!

We started cleaning up Gilligan’s enclosure closest to Zucari. Hopefully, we can get that side finished tomorrow.

Steph C. and I did a bunch of odds and end jobs today that kept us pretty busy.

Honey and Bonnie cleaned up and stocked the Enrichment Cabin.

Thank you so much to everyone that came in today!

    Don’t know how I missed the fact that the rat around the baby bob’s was a wild one stealing their food. Talk about extra “enrichment”! lol They’ll really be ready for live prey when it’s time.
    Love love love all the pictures and news these daily updates provide.
    Still so sorry about Pebble…will she reside forever at BCR?
