Kimba Tiger Goes Back Outside



Even though Kimba really seemed to enjoy all of the attention in the Cat Hospital, along with the brushing, frequent baths and treats every 2 hours, she is very happy to be back outside in her Cat-a-Tat.


She is chuffing and acting like it is new all over again to her.  She will remain on our critical list for some time though as she has a long road ahead to recover from being so ill and starved.


Read about why she was in the Cat Hospital:

    She looks awful. I sure hope that she starts eating better soon.

  • Kizmin Reeves

    I hope she gets to enjoy it a long time. Thank you Big Cat Rescue for taking such good care of this 20 year old tiger!

  • Lesley Schultz

    I'm so happy that she seems better now and able to be moved back into her cat-a-tat! I'm also delighted that she seemed like she liked the attention at the Cat Hospital (wow, lots of brushing and baths and treat…sounds like a great place! 😉 It's a nice area she has now to enjoy in her enclosure. Does she have a nice soft sandy bed?

    Read about her when they rescued her and the others. Hope she makes it. She sounds like she is in bad shape. Poor girl.

  • Yvonne England

    Thank goodness Kimba was rescued by you. It was heartbreaking to see how much she was suffering. How can people be so cruel? You do a fantastic job. Xx

  • Adrienne Michele

    i'm so happy for her and all 3 of these beautiful animals. you do wonderful work and thank you!

  • Susan Haughey

    Thank you everyone! BCR and all the supporters for giving these tigers a new home where they feel safe, loved, and have full bellies! BCR, I think you likely have the very best sanctuary in the USA!!

  • Jane Garrison

    You should put her on RenAvast…there are big cats on it for kidney failure who are doing great. I know a woman who has a cougar on it and the cat has survived over 2 years now!!!

  • Pam Fersh

    I'm sure she thanks you for the love and care you gave her. Having peace and a chance to be in nice surroundings was a gift she enjoyed, even for such a short time. Love to you and those you care for so very well.
