October 2013 Exotic Feline Rescue Center ENEWS
BOOMER BALL BASH
Please join us on October 6, 2013 in Bloomington, Indiana for the Boomer Ball Bash supporting the Exotic Feline Rescue Center. The event will take place at the Sycamore Farm at 1720 West That Road, Bloomington, Indiana. Festivities will begin at 3:00 pm and continue to 6:00 pm. It will be an afternoon of great live music, food by Short Stop BBQ Train, Upland Beer, wine from Monarch Beverage, soft drinks and live and silent auctions. Best-selling local author Michael Koryta has donated a remarkable live auction item: a one-night stay for 2 at West Baden Springs Resort. This is just one of the many great items that will be available. For more information, click the link below.
Join us on November 2 at 12:00 pm for our annual EFRC Pumpkin Party. Witness a tiger or lion playing with a meat-filled pumpkin. Make sure to bring your hollowed-out pumpkins and we will gladly feel them with meat. This happens but once a year so join us for a fun-filled pumpkin party and do not forget your camera.
Bailey, Claire, Kilala, Kizman and Munka are growing fast. Make a trip to the EFRC to see our beautiful tiger cubs before they grow up.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE EFRC HEADKEEPER
Our head keeper, Rebecca Rizzo, began working at the EFRC in 2004. Many visitors have witnessed Rebecca hard at work so we decided to highlight a typical day for her.
8:00 am ~ Arrive at the EFRC and begin preparing morning medications. Deliver medications during morning walk-through of center. Prepare fire that will be used to burn bones.
9:00 am ~ Begin feeding small cats in two different areas.
9:30 am ~ Begin loading feed for big cats. The rest of the day will be spent taking care of the remaining BIG CATS. This will include feeding, cleaning and filling water buckets, pulling bone from the enclosures, scooping poop and cleaning and filling water tanks. After every section is cleaned, bone is taken to the burn pile and poop is taken to the compost pile. While in each enclosure, Rebecca and staff are checking fencing, shelter boxes and climbing towers for any damage.
1:00 pm ~ Start fire to burn bones.
5:00 pm ~ Deliver afternoon meds during afternoon walk-through.
Along with the responsibilities listed above Rebecca also gives tours, butchers, prepares for fundraising events, attends to sick or injured cats, completes required paperwork and attends rescues.
If you see Rebecca and her crew during your visit to the EFRC, be sure to thank them for all of their hard work.
