Lesser Cats need More room to run too!
The Story
Natasha the lynx was rescued from being turned into a fur coat 20 years ago. Since then she has lived in progressively larger cages, but has never had an unobstructed view of the sky. This may be her last year on this earth. Would you give her the chance to see the stars above and bask in the sun, in an enclosure that measures in acres rather than sq feet? Cougars, bobcats, servals, caracals and other exotic cats are in need of room to run too. We will be using the area that you see in the video, but it needs totally different walls to keep the small cats in, so we have to rebuild from scratch. We set a deadline of Valentine's Day as a way of asking you to show your love for Natasha and the other little wild cats too.
