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.

    Can we see a picture of modnic’s new deck and what procedure was done on her?

      As soon as she gets up on it we will try to post a photo. Kind of boring with no cat on it yet. Her procedure will be a video soon, so watch for it on YouTube.com/BigCatRescue You can see some photos from the procedure by scrolling back in time here https://bigcatrescue.org/category/news-bcr/
