If you own a house cat, then you know they love to roam any open space they have access to.

If a domesticated cat  — typically weighing in at seven to 10 pounds — needs room to explore, wouldn’t you think the same applies for an animal that can weigh anywhere from 150 to 700 pounds?

They do live in the wild for a reason!

Sadly, there are many animals that live in captivity, circuses, and poorly managed zoos, just so their owners can make money off of them.

Big Cat Rescue works to save abused, abandoned, and neglected big cats. They are one of the world’s largest big cat sanctuaries.

Recently, the rescue brought in seven exotic cats after a failed sanctuary in South Dakota was in the news and was forced to hand over their cats, bears, and wolves.

Originally, they were rescuing seven cats, but before Big Cat Rescue had been granted rights to take the animals, one had gotten out. After biting the old sanctuary’s manager, he was shot on sight.

Big Cat Rescue has taken in four bobcats and two cougars. The cats were all brought into their new home, and it’s quite obvious how happy they are to finally have a place to roam freely.
