“Cleocatra” was rehomed to us by the Florida Wildlife service when her original owner was severely injured in a skydiving accident. She is the biggest cat at BCFC and the biggest cat capable of purring (the 4th largest cat in the cat family). And you may hear her do just that when she sees her beloved Jim.
“Marilyn”, a high percentage cougar is boarded at Bear Creek through one of our volunteers. She was rescued from an overpopulated cat “zoo” that folded. She enjoys living near other similar species in the Florida Panther compound.
Our Hero, a Siberian Lynx was rescued from a fur farm in Nova Scotia. He was only a number, and survived because we was a good breeder. He was rescued from the fur trade to live out his life here at BCFC. World wide efforts to eliminate the sale of fur have dwindled the demand for the pelt of this beautiful creature. He has two female companions. Natasha was in a roadside attraction and was rescued when that venture failed. Shakira was another Texan whose owner’s failing health forced her to re-home Shakira with us.
