Today at Big Cat Rescue Sept 19

Today included letting Rusty and Sassy Caracals back together, catching DesPurrado bobcat for blood work and another failed attempt at catching Modnic the tigress to return her back to her enclosure.  Over the weekend volunteers Jennifer and Darren Holley built Modnic a triple level deck.
