Coordinator Report – Erin Carden
Great day today, we got a lot done, despite the heat! Thank you to Marie, Steph C, Karla, and Brittany for coming in to feed and clean. Thanks to interns Dylan, Justin, Nisha Elizabeth, Erin P., and Kate for working on Running Bear’s enclosure so he could go home, and for sprucing up a rehab cage so it’s ready for new visitors.
Karla and Mazz got food prep done before lunch, lots of cats got sicles today to help cool them off thanks to Marie, and some intern classes sign-offs were done.
Despite the wicked afternoon heat interns Justin, Ashley, Dylan, Lexi, Nisha, and Elizabeth worked very hard to get half of Hutch’s cage clean. It’s almost finished!
Thanks, everyone for making it an awesome Tuesday!
NEW Rehab Bobcat Kitten Named Pebble
On June 4, 2019, Jamie picked up a very thin dehydrated 5 week-old bobcat kitten found orphaned in a development. This kitten was surrendered to Peace River Wildlife Center, the same place we got Ash from. She will be on quarantine for 2 weeks. She has been named Pebble. Jamie gave her some food and she started eating. Pebble appears sickly so we will do a SNAP and Panleukepenia tomorrow to rule those out. See more info and more photos about Pebble at http://bigcatrescue.org/pebble/
