Big Cat Updates

Do You REALLY Want the Abuse & Exploitation of Big Cats to Stop?

There is a SIMPLE, QUICK, FREE way to help. That is making the Call of the Wild, EVERY WEEK, at The abuse will not stop UNTIL YOU decide to make that call a priority in your life. Don’t sit around assuming someone else will make the calls, because “someone else” is probably thinking they don’t need to because “Someone else” will do it.

Step up, today, and be the one who does it! The only thing that is hard about making the call is getting started.

If YOU LOVE BIG CATS, what are you waiting for?

Ever wonder why you see so many of our 60+ lions, tigers, leopards, cougars, servals, bobcats and other wild cats being fed off sticks? This video explains all of the reasons and you just have to stay to the end to hear Simba Savannah Cat enjoying his treats!

This looks AMAZING if you wear Oculus Go, HTC Vive, Rift, Cardboard or any other sort of HMD. Get our inexpensive headset and support the cats at the same time at

Saying Goodbye to Skipper

Our beloved Skipper has departed. Dr. Justin performed a necropsy on Skipper Lynx and found that his liver was hard and covered with white blisters that will most likely come back as cancer. His lungs had a blackish red tint indicating that he could have thrown a clot that resulted in his quick passing. (Only a few minutes passed between a keeper reporting that he was panting and him dying) as we were bringing the cart to take him to the hospital to cool down.

The only good thing is that he was in good health and spirits right up until the last couple of days when he started eating only half of his meals. Thank you, everyone, who gave this beautiful cat a second chance at life and all of the love any cat could ask for.
