Treating the entire animal at The Wildcat Sanctuary

By | February 19, 2015 at 6:52 pm | No comments

It can be easy to think that, with just a little TLC, you can turn around the life of a rescued resident.  In the best case scenarios, that can happen.  But, more often than not, the cats that come to the Sanctuary have extreme medical conditions, unknown history and,...

In the heart of a rescue at The Wildcat Sanctuary

By | February 9, 2015 at 11:51 pm | No comments

A life on display I received a call from a caretaker of a small event center in California.  She explained that servals, caracals, a lynx and tigers were on display at a mansion.  The mansion was used for weddings, events, retreats, tours and even yoga classes.  The cats...

Long time resident, Mark the F1 Bengal, passes on.

By | February 4, 2015 at 3:09 pm | No comments

At 19, Mark was one of the oldest cats at The Sanctuary, a very unheard of age for an F1 Bengal (a cross between an Asian Leopard Cat and a Bengal Cat).  Saying good-bye was bittersweet.  We were able to celebrate that he lived a long, good life surrounded by humans and cats...

To declaw or not to declaw…that is the question.

I remember walking into the shelter to adopt my very first pet.  I had looked at rescue groups, ads in the paper and had visited several shelters looking for the right cat – the one looking for me. When I saw her, I knew.  She was not exotic looking, nor a fancy breed. ...

Goodbye to our dear caraval Zepo at The Wildcat Sanctuary

By | January 29, 2015 at 2:23 pm | No comments

Our hearts are heavy as we had to say goodbye to Zepo, the caraval. At 15 years old, he was geriatric.  Caracals normally live between 15-17 years in captivity and hybrids lives are even shorter.  Even so, Zepo didn’t seem old to us.  We have had cats live to be in their...

In memory of bobcat Felicity and bengal cat Sumatra at The Wildcat Sanctuary

By | January 12, 2015 at 9:16 pm | No comments

We have 106 residents, 47 are senior or geriatric with 27 of those being over 15 years old. The hardest part about rescuing so many cats is that they will one day leave us. It never gets easier and it tends to come in waves.  It can feel too much to bear sometimes.  But we...
