Big Cat Updates
Alpha, the baby wild bobcat, and Hutch Serval will be in the recovery hospital overnight after seeing Dr. Justin. Alpha had a recheck and Hutch had a swelling on his face. Both are doing well and should go out to their enclosures tomorrow.
Alexa Flash New Briefing
Great day today! We had a good number of volunteers come out today to get feeding, cleaning, and projects done! There were a few projects on the list for today. We completed Alpha’s enclosure out in the rehab area thanks to Megan, Tanya, Mike, Austin, Fred, and Mazz.
We also locked Breezy into half of her enclosure, the other half was cleaned and will become Frosty’s enclosure in hopes that he will be going outside soon thanks to Megan, Fred, Austin, Tanya, Dylan, and Mike.
We almost completed Skipper’s old enclosure as well thanks to Austin, Tanya, Fred, Mike, and Mazz. Food-prep was completed before lunch thanks to Steph C. Marie was able to do the ‘cicle cats which made them all very happy. There was lots of operant and enrichment done today, making lots of happy cats and volunteers.
Keisha ate very well today!
That’s all for today~
Videos of the Day
Hutch Serval was noted as having a swelling on his right cheek and was checked by Dr. Justin. We sent samples out to the lab to be tested. Read more about Hutch at BigCatRescue.org/hutch/ Dr. Juston says he does not think it is a tumor.
Interesting Cat Fact: Cats have a very acidic digestive tract, starting w/ their mouths. That’s why cat bites are so painful.
Dr. Justin is here to re-examine Alpha the Rehab Bobcat. You can support the Rehabilitation of Native Florida bobcats at BigCatRescue.org/Donate
