Cats to See Dentists on May 18th
The following cats will be getting dentals on this coming Saturday and as usual, we will stream them LIVE on our main Facebook page at Facebook.com/bigcatrescue. We would be grateful to any of you who could pop in and join the video comments to help us chat with newcomers.
- Frankie Bobcat – 3 root canals
- Alpha Rehab Bobcat will be checked to see if her tooth is growing properly. The results of this exam will help determine when she will be released and a wonderful place for her release has been found.
- Sapphire Tiger will have an overall exam as well as a dental check.
- If there is time, we may do another cat as well, to be announced at that time.
Elderly Serval Gets New Ramp
Pharaoh has access to the second section of his enclosure. A ramp was built to help him get on top of his big den.

Coordinator Report – Lauren Grant
Today was busy! Thanks to everyone who came in to help with flea prevention treatment feeding, we got most of the cats to take them! Yay! Jinx and Jasmine went home! Priya is on vacation and Sundari is on funcation; enjoying their freshly mowed spaces thanks to the Interns!
Thank you, Deb Quimby, for the delicious pizza lunch. Erin Carden and Aleesa Salcido cleaned the van and everything inside. The interns and Lauren Grant cleaned the golf carts. Some last minute sign-offs were done at the end of the day!
Thanks for a great day, everyone!
Big Cat Facts – Lions
The Lion’s head and body can be up to eight feet, two inches, and tail up to three feet, five inches. Its weight can be up to 550 pounds.
Lions are primarily ground-dwellers, but occasionally jump up tree branches. Most Lions will remain in the same territory all year long, however, some are nomadic and follow the seasonal prey.
PIZZA Lunch with Staff & Volunteers
Deb Quimby and Marlene Russell are at Big Cat Rescue this week visiting with the cats and working with staff and volunteers. Everyone took a lunch break to enjoy some pizza provided by Deb and Marlene.
Videos of the Day
Jinx the Black Leopard is going home from Funcation!
Jasmine Tiger is going home from Vacation! While waiting for the tunnels to be assembled for Jasmine to go home, Priya Tiger was closed in her lockout in preparation for Jasmine to pass through Priya’s far section. You get a chance to hear a LOT of ‘talking’ from Priya.
It’s time for Priya Tiger to spend two weeks enjoying Vacation Rotation! Big Cat Rescue Vacation Rotation is 2.5 acres and you can watch LIVE at BigCatCams.com

Photos for the Day
Sweet Smalls Bobcat is ready to dream of squirrel and lizard chasing!
Natalia Leopard likes to sit in her platforms and peek out at keepers and neighbors. I wonder if she thinks she is hidden.
Pharaoh Serval lounging in the shade and coolness of his favorite foliage area. Here at Big Cat Rescue all of the cats have places they can go hide in the shade when they want a little privacy.
Cutie Pie Mrs. Claws Bobcat wishes everyone the happiest of FURsday Thursday’s!?
