Hiya to all!
Well, my ISDN is back on line, so I'd better hurry and get these pix
This set were taken back in March of this year, at the Cat Survival
Trust in Codicote, Hertfordshire. UK. Run by Terry Moore, his wife, a
few volunteers, and Cato the loveable Snow Leopard, they take big cats
that are unwanted from zoos and private collections, or that have been
confiscated from unlicensed owners.
Also, they take on older cats. Many of the pictures you'll see, the cats
look very deschevelled. I can assure you they are treated and kept to a
very high standard, but many of them are old. One of the Bobcats
pictured (with the misty eye) is over 20 years old! They are often kept
in pairs or groups (except for a few unsociable types), and I think this
is a good way for them to end their years, in peace, with company.
Terry has a web page at :-
a very informative site, because it has a list and detailed description
of all the species of wild cat, and a listing of nearly every zoo in the
world that keeps cats, and what those cats are. Well worth a look.
Indexes to follow first.
