Esmerelda the serval has been a long time favorite of guests and volunteers at Big Cat Rescue. She is going on 20 and in her last few moments of life in this form with advanced renal failure. We have been giving her supportive care and her appetite and attitude have been pretty good up until last night. It rained all morning and when keepers found her out in it and soaking wet they decided to bring her into the cat hospital to dry off and warm up.

It rained all day so we didn’t get many photos, but our volunteers were here making sure the cages were cleaned and the the gift shop stocked. No matter what the weather, we can count on Big Cat Rescuers to put the cats’ needs first.  It reminds me of a quote:  “A crown is merely a hat that lets the rain in,” by Frederick The Great.

    I hope Ezzy is okay. She is one of my favorite servals. I remember taking a lot of pictures of her at camp during the summer. Also, for my 13th, I hope on getting a private tour so I can see my favorite cats again! I also hope to see more of Esmeralda 🙂
