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

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

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...

The Wildcat Sanctuary thanks YOU for making 2014 a year to remember!

When I started the Sanctuary over 15 years ago, I knew I always wanted our organization to have heart.  It was important to be true to the original mission, because that meant being true to you and the cats. The Wildcat Sanctuary needed to be a place where each animal was...

What is a Bengal tiger rescued from Texas to do on a cold Minnesota Day?  Play of course.  That is if you are Ekaterina and live at the Wildcat Sanctuary. Your support brings joy to Ekaterina and every tiger that now calls TWS home.  Is there another...

Here’s a rare opportunity to name 2 white tiger cubs at The Wildcat Sanctuary!

This year, Thanksgiving has a whole new meaning as we give thanks for two more lives we’ve been able to save.  Because of the generous support we know we can count on from you, we stepped up and said “yes” when these little ones needed placement.  Read their story...
