We arrived at the Big Cat Rescue and were welcomed into the area where there was a gift shop, videos of what goes on there and prepared for our tour. On the tour, as you see different cats, you get their story of where the cat came from, what happened and how the cat is healthy and as close to their natural habitats as possible. You then can listen to a recorded story about the cats journey to the rescue compound. Most stories will break your heart. There are 3 cats in the “witness protection program” in other words, they have been placed with the rescue program until their trial or legal situation is cleared in court. They cannot know where the cat came from, what was done to the cat, or what the cat may have done. The employees and interns of the compound live nearby and become very involed with the cats. It is truly a lovely place for these cats to have as a refuge. You learn a lot. You get pretty close. And, you understand how essential it is to protect these animals.
