Big Cat Updates

Today’s update you will find: Afton’s new video about CamBu, Art By Cindy: Amanda, Andre, & Arthur, Saying goodbye to precious Banshee Bobcat, Facebook Live video replays, Free Facebook cover photos for Halloween, Can YOU Find King Joseph photo, Wildcat Walkabout update, Big Cats With Pumpkins recipe book update, Photos by viewers, Videos by viewers, Gabrielle update, & more.

Gabrielle Tiger had two masses. The one in her mouth is benign, but the one on her side is not, meaning Gabrielle Tiger does have cancer.  We can try to remove it, however, due to her advanced age we cannot sedate her again this soon after her dental, which is when the cancer was found.  Vets are watching her closely and are collaborating now to form a plan of action for her future care.

Yesterday, the cats started getting their pumpkins.  Amanda, Andre, Arthur, Nikita Lion, Priya Tiger, the cougar “cubs, a witness protection cat and Pharaoh Serval all got pumpkins. Afton filmed it so expect some fun video clips to be coming soon.  Priya had an absolute blast with her pumpkin.

Cooper, the young rehab bobcat, will be ready for release back into the wild in the next few weeks.  We will keep you posted about it.

 Art By Cindy

Cindy has made another AMAZING peace of Big Cat Art!  This time it features 21 year old tiger siblings Andre, Arthur, & Amanda.  Cindy’s talent is beyond amazing.  She graciously allows us to make shirts, mugs, etc with her beautiful works of art to raise funds for the cats and for big cat issues.  Find those items at http://CatRescue.biz  and on Amazon as well.  Help us say THANK YOU to Cindy by “Liking” her Facebook page, Art By Cindy.

 Saying Goodbye to Banshee Bobcat

Born 1995, Rescued 11/13/1998, Crossed the Rainbow Bridge 10/19/2017

Banshee didn’t eat for the past three days, so Dr. Justin came to look at him last night. Banshee had fluid in his chest and a mass that was impeding his heart and breathing. At the age of 22 there was nothing we could do for him and chose to help ease him over to the other side. You can read his heartbreaking story and post your tributes to him in the comments of his bio page here https://bigcatrescue.org/banshee-2/

Read Banshee’s heart touching story, see photos, read tributes, and leave your own tribute at https://bigcatrescue.org/banshee-2/  (NOTE:   I just added more photos there)

Why did you paint his paws?

  • Jamie uses non-toxic children’s washable paint.  The original paw prints are for the keepers who volunteer their time caring for the cats because they love them.  These are keepsakes for them.  We do put reproductions in the gift shop. Learn more at https://bigcatrescue.org/paw/  She is careful not to let this activity interfere with anything the vets are doing.

 Wildcat Walkabout / Safari Days

All 600 tickets have sold out.  We have selected five important “in situ” projects (i.e. work being done out in the wild to preserve species). Each project is devoted to a different species – Tiger, Lion, Cougar, Ocelot and Bobcat.  We are also offering a special Line of Wildcat Walkabout Gear to help raise funds for the five conservation projects as well.  Click on the tote bag below to see the complete line of fun Wildcat Walkabout merchandise. Learn more at https://bigcatrescue.org/safari-days/ and see which conservation projects we are raising awareness and support for.
