An inside look at one of the largest exotic feline rescue centers in the United States
Nestled in the woods near Center Point, Indiana, The Exotic Feline Rescue Center houses more than 190 big cats—including lions, tigers, leopards, pumas, bobcats, servals, ocelots, lynx, and an asian leopard cat. All of the cats at EFRC have one thing in common: they are predators that have suffered abuse and escaped extermination because of the EFRC's efforts.
Through astonishing images and compelling text, Stephen D. McCloud tells each cat's story. Meet Sinbad, Molly, Sierra, Montana, Tika, and others. Included with the photos in this book are background stories, anecdotes, and inside information on the personalities of feline residents at EFRC.
Stephen D. McCloud heard about the Center in a casual conversation with a friend, and decided to take his camera and visit. In the last three years, McCloud and his camera have spent hundreds of hours at the Center. He has taken the time to get to know each of the cats: their likes, their dislikes, their quirks, and their stories. The affection he has for them is clearly reflected in his photographs. It's an incredible collection, and choosing only 100 or so for the book proved a daunting task.
Stephen D. McCloud has been a passionate photographer since his teen years. For the past 25 years, he has worked in the Information Technology Department at Indiana State University. McCloud's portfolio includes sports photography, natural landscapes, oddities, and exotic felines. A regular volunteer at EFRC, he lives in Terre Haute, Indiana.
