NOVEMBER 2014 ENEWS FOR THE EXOTIC FELINE RESCUE CENTER

WHAT ARE WE THANKFUL FOR
As Thanksgiving approaches, the rescue center gives thanks to our wonderful supporters and visitors. Without all of you we could not rescue and provide for our resident felines. Some of our supporters provide much needed financial assistance while others provide their time to attend special events while others spread the word about our mission. Everyone is an integral part of our rescue center and from the bottom of our hearts we send a big THANK YOU ROAR.

NORTH CAROLINA TIGERS
According to the EFRC head keeper, Fluss-MacDuff and Elizabeth are adjusting to their new home at the rescue center. They are both eating an appropriate amount of food. Fluss-MacDuff is coming to the fence to greet the keepers but Elizabeth’s adjustment is taking a bit longer. She is grumbling less at staff but is still unsure of her new surroundings. Staff understands her needs and will be patient with her as she makes her transition to the EFRC. After arriving at the center, Fluss-MacDuff required a nail trim which is a procedure performed frequently on our elderly felines. He tolerated the procedure well and is on the mend.

BOOMER BALL BASH
150 people enjoyed an afternoon of shopping, bidding, music, food and fun. The event was a great experience, in large part because of the good-hearted generosity of some wonderful local businesses. It really was a community effort. We thank Bloomington for supporting the big cats at the EFRC. Please click on the link below to see wonderful pictures of the event.

SAVING THE BIG CATS CHARITY AUCTION
Mark your calendars for our SAVING THE BIG CATS CHARITY AUCTION on January 24, 2015. This year the event will take place in Plainfield, Indiana at The Palms. More details will be forthcoming on our website, the December ENEWS and our Facebook page.

SHE’S AFRAID OF WHAT????
During a recent tour, Melanie, a volunteer tour guide, and her guests were visiting with Zoe, female tiger. As the guests watched Zoe and listened to her life story, they noticed that Zoe stopped walking and started to back away from something she spied on the ground. Melanie informed the guests that it was probably a snake because most tigers do not like snakes and will back away if they see one. Melanie and the guests looked for a snake so imagine there surprise when they realized that Zoe’s frightening encounter was with a wooly worm. Yes, a wooly worm.

         

Thank you for your continued support!
