Keeper Lauren Grant’s Coordinator Report for Thursday, 10/5/2017

The weather has been great, and it seems to making the cats very happy.

Everyone ate very well today!

Cam and Boo’s cage is almost done. The bubble by the Texas still needs to be scrubbed for algae and painted and it needs to be dirted. The safety gate entrance door needs to be moved to the outside so it opens out instead of in.

Max and MaryAnn’s has some work that needs to be done: tree trimmed, mowed, ect.

That’s about it!

 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival

By Carole

I was gasping for every breath; hanging onto the railing so that I wouldn’t pass out from the lack of oxygen, but I kept climbing because I knew the just a few steps away there was a mecca of like minded people (800+) who are changing the world. That was the scene about a dozen times a day during our week in Jackson Hole at the Cat Summit because Howie and I live at 7 feet above sea level and Jackson Lake Lodge is close to 7,000 feet above sea level. Between our room and both levels of the conference, it meant taking the stairs up and down three levels in between each hour long session.  READ THE REST of Carole’s Story at:  https://bigcatrescue.org/jackson-hole-wildlife-film-festival/

 Letter To Management

We want to THANK off-site volunteer Lori D. for writing these fun humorous letters to management.  We all get a kick out of them and hope you do too.

Dear Sir/Madam

We have been contacted by certain of our clients living in the gated community at Big Cat Rescue regarding a nationwide TV appearance that occurred last night on NFL Thursday Night Football.

Gabrielle Tigress, Joseph Lion, Cameron Lion, and Sundari Leopard demand to be compensated for their appearance on last night’s NFL football broadcast. Zabu Tigress is not interested in pursuing this matter at this time.

The above-named felines are insisting on compensation since they were not asked to sign any kind of release regarding the use of the video in any kind of commercial venture.

They did not consent to or give the producer and its agents or assigns or anyone authorized by the producer, the unrestrained right to utilize their images for any purpose whatsoever in connection with advertising, publicity, public displays, or exhibitions.

FURTHER, we have also been contacted by Her Royal Lioness Nikita, who is furious that she was not included in the video and also demands compensation. As the reigning queen of Big Cat Rescue, this oversight was an unspeakable offense.

Therefore, we insist that restitution be made swiftly and immediately to the above-mentioned felines in the form of an abundance of turkey legs and chicken. We also demand that treats be given out three times a day.

We trust you will give this matter your immediate attention.

Sincerely,

Kat Mandoo, Partner
The Law Firm of Catz, Kats, Morekatz and a Rat
