Tribute to Sasha Lioness What started out as a simple procedure to remove a mass from her face seemed to all be going great. She had good respiration, good steady heartbeat, and we were all done and suturing up a little spot on her tongue, where another abrasion and lump had been found, when she stopped breathing. Dr. Wynn and Dr. Boorstein adminis…
 
2013 Annual Report With your help we are winning in the battle for compassion! Up until 2003 the number of requests for rescues we had to turn down due to lack of space or funds had roughly doubled each year, to 312 that year. We feared it would double again to over 500 in 2004. Instead, it has steadily declined since then thanks to the passage of …
 
Please don't buy me gifts for the holidays!

ZooKeepers Losing Life and Limbs Within a week of each other, one worker at GW Zoo (the place we sued and won a 1 million dollar judgment) nearly had her arm ripped off and a man with 30 years experience, at an AZA zoo, was killed by an elephant.

When Rose Was Born She Reminded Me of a Rosebud (The last photo of Momma Jacquie and me dated 2/11/13. This was the day we moved her from Aunt Carole’s condo to the Cougar Camp at Big Cat Rescue to live with my parents) Tiny, delicate and fiery red. But a name like Rosebud conjures up cows, so Rose became her name. She was born into a chaotic time …

People Say Our Sanctuary Was a Landfill I keep hearing people say that our sanctuary was previously a landfill or a dump and yesterday heard that it was in foreclosure.

Enya Cougar Chokes to Death Enya the cougar was named for the singer because when my grandfather was dying in Hospice care at home, he said he loved listening to her on CDs.

Cats We’ve Offered to Take Some cats you might never meet are those that we are asked to take but who never end up here because their owners would rather send them somewhere awful than to contract with us to never own another exotic cat.

Jumanji Leopard and Our Evolution of Thought I suspect that our tour guides just don’t know what to say about Jumanji the black leopard because I often overhear people saying, or I read in some article that Jumanji came from the pet trade. His story online and in the Safari Guide is below and does not say that, even though it is true in a sense. Ju…
 
Tribute to Hallelujah the Cougar Jamie giving Hallelujah a bath after a weaning session in 1993 Hallelujah was the first "big" cat to live on Easy Street.

"Maybe you should have given everyone a pep talk," Jamie said as the last of the sad faces left Food Prep. "It was an awful way to end Thanksgiving Day."
