Kitties & Boxes of All Sizes

Though I am away from my kitties… I wasn’t missing them TOO badly when I had the opportunity to visit Panther Ridge Conservation Center.

This is seven month old Mateo; he’s having fun tearing a box to ribbons!  He is so sturdy and still looks a bit like he has baby fuzz fur.  Cute as a button.

When he grows up they are hoping he gets along well with their gorgeous lady jaguar Isabella as part of the species survival plan.

Panther Ridge supports and is part of a number of big cat survival programs.  The wonderful woman behind it all (the center’s director Judy Berens) did LOTS of street/feral kitty rescue years ago and then switched to bigger kitties.

All the cats so obviously LOVE Judy and welcome her with chirps/meows/purrs each according to their abilities.  The visit (about two hours) was relaxed and friendly as well as being informative.

If you EVER can make it there it is well worth taking the tour (has to be pre-booked).  Taking the tour helps support the undertaking.
