Big Cat Health Report

Priya Tigress is oozing from her stitches because she won’t lay still.  We locked her in the transport wagon last night to minimize her movements and that helped.  She ate and took her meds last night and this morning.  You can watch her on the Nest cam here:  https://video.nest.com/live/E3c0wzrYKN

Interesting info on the type of roundworm found in Seth’s poop. http://www.aavp.org/wiki/nematodes/ascaridida/toxascaris-leonina/  It appears to be the result of filthy conditions.  We’ve never seen this parasite before now.  The Colorado cats will all be treated for this and will have to have successive clean stool checks before they can go out on “vacation”.

Senility can be a good thing.  Some of our cats have always been shy but we are finding that as they age they forget to be fearful.  Tiger Lilly Bobcat, Little Dove Bobcat and Artemis Cougar have always slunk away at the sight of people approaching, but now they come right up to anyone who approaches.  Do you find that your pet cats are more people friendly as they get into their teens and twenties?

Ohio Cats Aren’t Going Anywhere

 

Many of you have been concerned about the nonsense posted on social sites by the ill informed (and ill mannered) Kenny Hetrick fan club. A county judge can’t force the hand of a state agency. It’s been tried and failed in Ohio already. The Ohio Dept. of Ag is taking it to the Supreme Court, who has already ruled in their favor on another person, we consider to be an animal abuser, who got her county judge to make a similar, unenforceable order.  See the previous Supreme Court decision:  https://supremecourt.ohio.gov/rod/docs/pdf/0/2016/2016-ohio-3049.pdf

Silver State comes in last place on exotic pet ownership

Wayne Pacelle“Earlier this month, a woman on the run from authorities in Texas fled to Nevada with her collection of tigers, monkeys, a fox, and a skunk — and her 14-year-old daughter who was living under the same roof as the wild animals.

A California couple, whose escaped pet tiger prowled neighborhoods for weeks before finally being shot and killed by authorities, quickly moved with the rest of their big cats to the Silver State, where they were found living in filthy conditions.

State and local Nevada agencies investigated and confiscated the animals from the former Texas and California residents. ”

Check out Wayne Pacelle’s blog and note his conclusion is that the answer is a federal bill to end the trade in big cats.  “The federal government should also act to protect animal welfare and public safety – and to promote the conservation of endangered species – by enacting the Big Cat Public Safety Act that would prohibit unqualified individuals from possessing and breeding big cats, bolster weak state laws, and fill any gaps in state oversight.”

Unfortunately, even though we offered to take the lynx and leopard from the Nevada seizure, we’ve been told the county had already sent them to a place that we think is just as bad.  http://911animalabuse.com/rexano-rexano/

Catherine Tomins won a few days ago, but asked that we give Cheetaro Leopard a turkey, instead of sending her a calendar or tee, so we were happy to oblige.
