Aleesa Salcido - We had a fun day today! We met a new face today Hanna! melinda coats helped teach Hanna how to be a pro back up like her and went on the feeding and keeper tour. Edith Parker helped me keep the gift shop running in tip-top shape. Carrrieann Banacki-Gillert, Elizabeth Heath, Melinda, and Diane Amison-Loring helped label some items before embarking on a tour! Melody Moore got another tour sign off by Abbey Rivett with Diane driving the golf cart! Liz took out the other tour with Carrieann as the backup! They got their tours back just in time before the rain! That’s it from me! As always, I love seeing you guys in the gift shop! You make my day better!
Fred Pagan - Good day today, some of us (but not all) even avoided the rain!
Feeding was done by a great team made up of Stephanie Chaiser, Cassidy Helber, Mary Gagliordi, Abbey Rivett, Karla Pinzon, Susan Reed, Bethany Smith, and Sharon Henry. Sue and Sharon then took care of the Feeding Tour and Keeper Tour, while the rest of the team took care of cleaning cats, along with MaryLou Geis.
Bethany and Mark Mira took care of cleaning Kali's and Sapphire's enclosure in preparation for Walkabout. Micheal Heap also came in to do some enclosure maintenance and repair! Afton Tasler, Stephanie Chaiser, and I took care of finishing up Simba's cage and it's looking very good.
A great day with only a little rain to deal with, thanks, everyone!

Kristine’s Bobcat Rehab Overnight Report
MALACHITE, ASH and CINDER – Ash and Cinder got their pumpkin enrichment on their Coolaroo and at first, they didn't pay much attention to them. In the afternoon Ash lounged and napped up on top of the tall platform in the back section, while Cinder wandered around the front and middle sections. She was checking things out and watching everything around them.
After a while, she made her way to the back section and jumped up on the tall platform with Ash. They cuddled up and took a nice cat nap, then they woke up and jumped down and they disappeared into the middle section for a while.
Eventually, as the sun was setting they came into the front section to check things out. Cinder wandered around and paced the fence and Ash discovered the pumpkins. He sat on the ground and reached up on the Coolaroo to bat at it and then bite at it, then he batted at the other one too. So cute!
They wandered around some more and stalked the squirrel, then later as it got dark, they went to the back section and got up on top of the tall platform to curl up together and take a nap. A little later they woke up and were off to investigate everything in the back and middle sections, then they came into the front section and went to their spot on the grass by the pipe and curled up to take a long nap.
Later they woke up and went to the back section to wander around for a short time, before going back to the front section and curling up in their spot again for another nap. After a while they woke up and wandered around the front and middle sections, they climbed on the logs and Coolaroo and then they went back to their spot to take another short nap.
A bit later they woke up and were off to wander around. When they came back into the front, Cinder paced the fence and Ash played with the pumpkins again for a while, knocking one off of the Coolaroo and rolling it around, lol. So cute!
Then he went into the middle section for a while and Cinder paced the fence and wandered around. Ash came back up front after a while and they zoomed around chasing each other for a short time, then they just walked around and watched things. As I write this, they are still wandering around the front section and watching out towards the woods. They are adorable!!! :-)
***I saw sweet Malachite again for a few seconds, he was wandering around his front section and then disappeared into his middle section. I looked but didn't see him, he must of went through the foliage area, lol. He's so cute!!! :-)
I wish everyone a wonderful Friday!
Warm wishes, Kristine Metzner
