Big Cat Updates
Kathryn’s Coordinator Report for 6/14/2017
Sassy’s cage was finished. Sassy Cougar is back in her enclosure.
Both hospital cages were cleaned and both hospitals were swept and mopped.
Finished Mickey’s other bubble.
Picky cats ate ok. TJ did well, Cameron likes turkey drumsticks right now. Arthur and Andre ate well.
All the project interns went out for enrichment and several got signoffs.
Explore will be adding some IR lighting to Tiger Lake so you can watch the tigers at night without the light disturbing them. We are trenching in power right now, so that cam may be down for a few hours.X

What is Big Cat Rescue doing for International Tiger Day?
INTERNATIONAL TIGER DAY IS JULY 29TH!
We have designed a unique new line of merchandise featuring TJ tiger for International Tiger Day — July 29th! Learn more and check it all out here: Tigers911.com
Big Cat Rescue will donate the profit from all purchases of our International Tiger Day merchandise — and any donations you make on the ITD merchandise page — plus we will MATCH THE PROFIT DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR up to $5000.
The funds will be donated to the Corbett Foundation’s work to protect wild tigers, leopards and other animals in India from falling into open farm wells. The money will be used to construct chain-link fences around the wells, keeping the big cats from falling into these very deep wells and drowning.
A Tiger has fallen into this well, is trapped and will die without help.
Fences around these wells will save wild tigers like the one trapped at the bottom of this well.
Currently about 2500 of these open farm wells exist, many in the core zone of the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve. It costs approximately $100 to fence one well.
We hope to send the Corbett Foundation a check for $10,000, which will fence 100 wells!
Plus you’ll have a chance to win an original paw print painting when you post a photo of yourself on July 29th with your TJ tiger International Tiger Day merchandise! So let’s get shopping and help save wild tigers!
BEATRIZ AT DINNER will be opening in select cities on Friday, including:
AUSTIN, BOSTON, CHICAGO, DALLAS, DENVER, HOUSTON, LOS ANGELES, MIAMI, MINNEAPOLIS,
