Coordinator Report – Afton Tasler

Cameron, Hoover, Andre, and Frosty all ate well today! Interns got specialty tour sign-offs today.

All of the interns were out on tours, so Steph C. and myself did food prep and Alyssa W. double checked us. Beth went out and cut the new growth on trees around the property. She got the ones around the tour path and in the cougar section.

Steph C. and Jeff put all of the benches back around the tour path from the wedding. Steph C. and I removed Des’s pumpkin and put hay in a bunch of little cat dens. Hutch thought the hay was the best thing ever!!! We were cracking up watching him have the best time!!

Meet Narla, Afton’s Office Kitty

A year ago a cat was found taking shelter under intern housing. Find out her story and how she is doing today.

Baby Bobcat Has A Name

They named her Autumn!

THANK YOU, Everyone, who donated to help the rescued bobcat kitten.

In case you missed her story:  Shout out to everyone involved in saving this precious bobcat’s life! A husband and wife rescued her from the side of the road in Buhl, AL and called Big Cat Rescue. We called every bobcat rehabber in Alabama until Orange Beach (4.5 hrs from Buhl) coordinated with Alisa from Second Nature Wildlife Rehab who was much closer to get this little one the vet care she desperately needed. Please donate to Second Nature at their link in the story. Let them know Big Cat Rescue sent you.

Sorry about the weird layout. Watch Afton chase Vultures out of Seth’s covered area.

Awe, what’s more beautiful than young sleepy wild bobcat?! It is exciting to think about these boys being released soon to live wild and free. Recorded on the live streaming Bobcat Rehab webcam at Explore.org/bigcatrescue
