“When someone helps you while they’re struggling too, that’s not help; that’s love”
Coordinator Report – Lauren Buckingham
Thank you to everyone that answered my call for help today. We had enough volunteers to clean, feed and even get some projects done.
Bridget and Andy got two bubbles of Max and MaryAnn Bobcat‘s enclosure cleaned up in the AM with the help of new intern Cassidy. Fred and Abbey finished up, what they were unable to do, after lunch. Marie, MC, and Angie took care of the meds cats making sure they all got what they needed AM and PM
After cleaning and before lunch, Steph C., and Fred got food prep done. Bethann came in specially to help feed big cats. Fred and Abbey cleaned off the roof of the empty enclosure by Mrs. Claws.
Jasmine was moved back to her enclosure, ready for Sapphire to come home tomorrow. Andy did a stick run while everyone was feeding this morning. Sign-offs were done for feeding and cleaning. Mazz came in, in the afternoon, doubled-checked food prep and helped with chores. Mary G. and Marie did cicles. Cats that were locked up for the storm were let out of their roof sections.
The ladies in the gift shop covered private tours and the 3 pm so I was able to keep the keepers
Thank you all for a great day!!

Kristine’s Bobcat Rehab Overnight Kitten Report
MALACHITE – Malachite was quiet and napped during the afternoon. He was awake a couple of times in between for a short time. He mainly just sat and looked around and listened to the sounds around him. He did bat at his stuffie a bit too. He was out looking around when Karma came in to clean his cage and he ran into his hut and then peered out. So cute!
After Karma cleaned his cages and gave him fresh water and food, he waited until he was sure she was gone, then he came out and found his dinner and chowed down. Then he played up a storm! He played with his stuffie, wrestled with it and batted it around.
He ran around and then he slid into his bed and grabbed his stuffie to wrestle with, then he would roll around on his bed and bite it, then grab his stuffie and attack it, lol. Then he would run back and forth from one end of his cages to the other, then stalk and pounce his stuffie. He tried to find a way out by standing on his hind legs again and reaching up the top of the cage. Silly cute Bob kid!
After a bit, while he was laying down and playing with his stuffie in the front of his cage, he just drifted off to sleep in the middle of playing. So cute! He napped for quite a while, then he woke up and started playing up a storm again. He found his stuffie and played like mad with it, attacking and biting it, lol. He had it in his bed and was at the far back part of his cage stalking it, then he would run and pounce on his stuffie and roll around on his bed.
He ran around his cage, then stood on his hind legs again reaching up with his front paws looking for a way to get out, lol. Then he finally settled down and laid in the front of his cage and took a bath. Then he wandered around some more. As I write this, he is all cozy in his hut taking a nice nap. He is adorable!
FLINT – Precious Flint napped in the afternoon, then woke up and played. He got up on his post and sat, looking around, then he played in his enrichment box for a bit. He sat inside of it peering out all playful like, lol. So cute!
When Carole brought in the go pro camera, I thought for sure he would attack it, but instead, he was unsure about it and just walked slowly around it looking at it, lol. Then he went over to it, sniffed it and rubbed his face on it for a bit, then he bit it, lol. He bit it a couple of times and rubbed his face on it, then he went and got his stuffie and carried it around in his mouth for a bit. He just kind of wandered around the go pro, silly boy. He was so cute!
Then Karma came in to get him for his Bemer treatment and to clean his room. After she cleaned it all up and laid out his blankets, toys, posts, fresh water, and food, she brought him back in. I love to watch him when he comes back in, he gets so excited. He walked around and checked everything out, then he went right to playing.
He pushed his box around and then ate some of his dinner, then played with some of it, flipping it all over, lol. Then he found his stuffie and played with it, he pushed his blanket all around too. Then he laid by his box and grabbed his stuffie and rested his front paws on it. Adorable!
He continued to play and run around until he wore himself out and then he went into his hut to get comfy and nap. A while later he was sleeping half in and half out of his hut, lol. It was SO cute! He would stretch and turn over and his back legs were in the hut so the hut would just turn over with him, lol. He’s just too cute!
He slept that way for quite a while, then woke up and wandered around a bit, before getting on top of his hut to get cozy and nap some more. He napped a lot of the night. Later I heard him playing but didn’t see him. I think he was playing behind the camera and on the other side of his enrichment box, lol. After I heard him behind the cam, I noticed there was no sound and refreshed the page and he unplugged his cam again, lol. Silly adorable boy! He’s too precious for words!
ASH and CINDER – Ash and Cinder spent the entire afternoon in the front section. They lounged and napped together on the hanging shelf, then a little later Ash got down on the den to nap for a bit and then bathe when he woke up. After he was done bathing he got back up on the hanging shelf with Cinder.
They moved all over the front left and right sections, lounging and napping. So cute! They were in the right side for a while, Ash napped by the fence and Cinder wandered around. Then they went back to the left side and got up on the hanging shelf again, to lounge and nap some more.
Later in the late afternoon, they wandered around for a while just checking things out, then they disappeared to the back sections to their secret napping place. They were back there for quite a while.
Later overnight, they appeared in the front section and wandered around, checked out the log pile and then they went back into the middle section for a while, then came back to the front section to pace the fence and wander around some more.
Then they must have heard the squirrel up in the tree or something because they both intently watched up there for a bit. After a little while, they both went to the very back section and played in the long grass and around the trees. Then they chased each other around for a bit, before disappearing into the trees.
They must of went back to their secret napping place because I didn’t see them for a while. Later they came back up front and wandered around, watched up in the tree again and they wrestled so adorably on the Coolaroo. It was gentle wrestling, kind of batting at each other. So cute!
After a bit, they went back to the middle section for a while and then Cinder came back upfront a bit later, to pace the fence for a while, stopping to look for Ash every so often. As I write this, Cinder is still pacing and Ash is sitting on the Coolaroo looking out across the other rehab enclosures. They are just too adorable!
Goodnight Big Cat Rescue Friends! ?
