Big Cat Care, How To Start A Sanctuary
Big Cat Rescue has evolved since its inception in 1992. By 1997 we had seen enough of the abuse and abandonment caused by the pet trade that we hadpreviously engaged in to know that there was no reason to breed exotic animals for lives in cages. As a result we increased our efforts through spaying, neutering and cage building to ensure that we would no longer be a part of the problem. As we have continued to learn about the causes of so much suffering we have become active in stopping the exotic pet trade through education and legislation.
This book is provided for those running a sanctuary who want to learn from our experience, or for those who have already made the mistake of supporting the pet trade so that the animal in your care does not suffer even more after being ripped from his mother. With more than 30 years experience, with every sort of exotic cat, I can assure you that there is nothing you can do to raise up an exotic cat to be a house pet. It just isn’t possible. No matter how young you neuter or spay the cats, both male and female, ALWAYS spray when they become adults.
The suggestions in this book are for those who are starting sanctuaries so that you don’t become another one of the 98% who kill their exotic animals in the first two years due to a lack of knowledge.
NOTE: We are in the process of breaking this very large book down into smaller books in a series. When that is complete we will re-release it as PDF, and Kindle, but for now it is only available in iBooks format. Get the iBook FREE for iPad from iTunes
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Apple versions and the PDF versions are free. However, Amazon does not allow us to offer them free for Kindle in the Amazon store unless we agree to offer them no where else at all. They set a price that is determined by file size. We do not mark up those prices but set them at the lowest price Amazon allows for each book’s file size. Amazon has been price matching some of the books to the free price on iTunes, but you have to ask them to. Currently Amazon has several of the Kindle books as free and we are working on trying to get them all free on Amazon.
Big Cat Rescue has begun publishing iBooks for iPad/iPhone on iTunes and on Amazon for the Kindle. Some of them are free. All of them have photos of the cats who call Big Cat Rescue home. We hope you enjoy this new venture and will share the books, and this link, with your family and friends. We will continue to add more books to this collection throughout 2016. Any feedback from you on this new project would be greatly appreciated.
