Coordinator Report – Lauren Grant
Such a hot day today!
Thank you to my feeders and cleaners who came in: Marie, Cindy, Candy, Bethany, & Mary J! Without you guys, we wouldn’t have had time to get all our cat moves done ?
Abbey, Dylan, & new intern Cassie helped move Max and MaryAnn. They were very stubborn, but they seem to be enjoying their new enclosure (the long enclosure between Des and Lovey). They will be cleaned by the Center Route, but until the feeding sheets are changed, they’ll still be on front route.
Abbey, Dylan, & Cassie also helped move Illithia home from Funcation, and Sapphire home from Vacation.
Fred and Aleesa joined the group and helped weed-eat both Funcation and Vacation.
We moved Manny into Funcation, even though he was very skeptical about it ?
Our last move was Jasmine, at the end of the day. She was happy to move after watching Sapphire out there for the past month❤ Mazz, Candy, & Cassie worked on food prep today.
Marie, Bethany, & Cindy made sure the cats got their sickles for the very hot day.
Thank you again to everyone for working so hard on another hot Florida day!

Kristine’s Bobcat Rehab Overnight Kitten Report
MALACHITE – In the late afternoon, Malachite woke up from napping and started in playing. He ran and attacked his scratching post, then he stalked his stuffie, ran and pounced on it. He batted it around and then sat at the end of his cage and looked around his room.
After a bit Karma came in to clean his cages, so he ran into his hut to hide. When she was done giving him clean blankets and fresh water and food and had left, he came out to check things out. He found his food plate and ate some of it, then he started playing up a storm.
He ran back and forth between his cages, then he stalked his stuffie from the back of his cage, then ran and pounced on it and batted at it, then he grabbed it with his front paws and bunny kicked it really hard, lol. Then he stalked, ran and pounced his blanket, sliding into it and then playfully buried his head it. He rolled around biting it and then he lounged there for a bit.
As he was lounging there he noticed his tail moving back and forth and watched it for a couple of minutes, then he attacked it, lol. It was so cute! He played with his scratching post some more and he climbed the cage sides again, then he went to the back of his cage to get comfy on a blanket and take a long nap.
Later he woke up for a short time and sat at the end of his cage to look around and listen to Flint playing. He played a bit with his stuffie and then he went to the back of his cage to settle down for another nap. As it was getting light he woke up and mainly sat in his back cage and listened to the sounds and then he came to the front part of his cage and looked around the room, still listening. As I write this, he is in the back part of his cage playing with something. He’s so cute!!!
FLINT – Precious Flint played up a storm in the late afternoon. He ran around his room, batting at his stuffies and carrying them around in his mouth. He jumped up on his post and looked up at the tape by the closet, I’m sure thinking about how he could get it, lol. He ate the rest of his breakfast and then ran around some more.
Then Karma came in to get him for his Bemer treatment and to clean his room. After she had cleaned and reset his room up and he was back in there like always he had to check everything out. He’s so cute, he gets so excited!
Then he started playing, he got into his box for a bit, then he sharpened his claws on his triangle scratcher. He found his stuffies and played with them, carrying them around. He then found his dinner and played with some of it for a while, flipping it all over. Then he ate it and went to his plate and ate some more, before going back to playing.
When Karma was cleaning his room she re-positioned his camera for a better view. This time he didn’t knock it out of wack, it just moved on its own, lol! He was back playing by his box and as I was watching him I saw the camera just move upward, lol. Flint heard it and looked over towards it like, what was that? lol! Then he went on playing.
After a bit, he was running around and jumped up on the carrier and it moved a little more upward, so I couldn’t see what he was doing unless he was right by the cam. But I could hear if he was playing. After a bit it got quiet, so he must have been back there napping on his hut.
Later I heard him back there playing up a storm and then I saw him go by the camera a couple of times. One time I saw him dragging his hut in his teeth, lol. He played for a while and then it got quiet again, so he must have been napping. Later I heard him awake again, back there playing with his toys. He played for a little while and then his cam went out, so he must of unplugged it playing, lol. He’s just too adorable and precious!!!
ASH and CINDER – Ash and Cinder spend another afternoon in the front section lounging and napping on the hanging shelf and the den. Cinder was up there more than Ash though. He wandered around the middle and back sections too. In the late afternoon, Cinder lounged and then napped on the den in the front left section, while Ash was in the back sections.
She napped there for a while, then went to the back sections to find Ash. After a while, she came back to the front section to pace the fence for a bit and then she got back up on the hanging shelf to lounge in the sunshine for a while. Then she was back down pacing the fence. Ash made his way up front and wandered around the two front sections, checking things out and kind of running around being playful. So cute!
Then Ash got up on the hanging shelf to lounge for a bit and Cinder sat on the den for a few minutes, before she was off to do more wandering and pacing. After a bit, Ash got down off of the shelf and he and Cinder wandered around for a while. Ash checked out the log pile and sat on the Coolaroo looking out over the other rehab enclosures.
After it started getting dark, they both made their way to the middle and back sections. They disappeared, so they must have been in their secret napping place. Later overnight, they came back up front to wander around and check things out.
They cuddled up by the Coolaroo to nap together for a while, then they were awakened by the squirrel or whatever it is up there in the tree, lol. They watched up there for a bit and then they both got up on the Coolaroo and lightly played together, batting at each other and biting, lol. A short time later they snuggled up together for another nap.
Later as it started to get light, they woke up and wandered around. Cinder paced the fence and Ash wandered around, then he went into the middle section. As I write this, they are both in the front section wrestling on the Coolaroo and pacing the fence. They are too cute!
Goodnight Big Cat Rescue Friends!?
