Big Cat Updates

Reise Cougar will be going outside today.

Josie Cougar will be seeing the vet today.

Servie went back out to her enclosure which she was very happy about!
Picky cats: Joseph refused meds AM & PM and would not eat until the PM, even then he only ate a small amount. Hoover was also difficult and refused AM meds, he did however take his PM and ate 5lbs around 4PM. We found poop for TJ and put that in the cooler. He didn't eat much either. Cameron ate a little in the morning and another couple of pounds in the PM (chicken and turkey drums). Zeus ate well :)
The hospital cages by seth were washed and some put away. The others were left on the block to dry.
Reise went into the hospital to have her nails trimmed and a bad tooth pulled yesterday.
Josie Cougar did not come out to eat today and would not eat from a long stick. She looked over at me when i was calling her but then turned her back and stayed in the den.

Our site is still acting up, but I have been assured that it is not hacked.  It's just SSL certificates fighting for dominance and each one saying the other one isn't to speak.

Trust me, I am all over the webcam people, constantly, asking when they are going to get the live cameras installed out in Bobcat Rehab.

 Keeper Corner

Hi Everyone,

I'm not a keeper but wasn't sure where the appropriate place to put this is.

Please accept my sincerest apology for there being no Big Cat Updates for March 5th & 6th.  I was unexpectedly away from my computer.  I'm back a little bit today.  Hopefully, by  tomorrow you will have the full normal updates back.

Many of you expressed concerns about the two days the updates page had only subheadings.  No, your computer, nor our server were glitching.  The glitch was ME :-(,  Here is what happened.

At the beginning of the month I set up the templates with the subheadings, the quick links, and viewer links for the whole month then each day I open the template for that day and just add to it throughout the day/evening.  The software then auto-posts it at 3:00 pm each day so Carole and I know we better have all our stuff on by then.

Because my absence was unexpected I had not thought to have someone turn off the auto-post feature so the empty template posted.  I am truly sorry for my goof up on that.

I am sincerely touched by how many of you messaged, emailed, and commented about the missing updates.  While I do truly feel bad for letting each of you down, I am deeply appreciative that so many of you actually cared about the missing updates. THANK YOU

By tomorrow, I'll try my best to catch as much of the stuff as possible that you might have missed.
