Omg, what a day! Im totally exhausted but overwhelmed!
The day started 6:30 with breakfast (cereals and Milk, and a. Kind of tacobread-sandwich with turkey and cheese – pretty good actually)
7:30 we start working, and after a few preparing tasks it was time for breakfast for the cats! Since I havent taking all classes (I will tell You more about that some other day), I was on vulture-gard! Prepared with an air-soft-gun (only for shooting on the ground to scare the vulture), I had the most magic moment ever.
The feeling of standig by all the cages with hungry cats who definitely let us all know how happy they were to see us. Tigers and Lions roared together in the most beautiful symphoni, accompanied by the fantastict cute sound from the Pumas. I was really on cloud nine!
After feeding and all the dishes, there was this huge delivery arriving and we all helped carry all the boxes with heavy meat – it was one of the worst work-out ever, but yet soo needed – suck it up, Princess!
Also before lunch we did two classes – one for nursering the kittens wichh we are fostering at our house and a second for tours in the park. Of course I passed both with honor!
We also had to drive the golf-cart they use on the property – my first time ever but it went smooth 🙂
And later on I was invited to be on one of the tours, and that was soo fantastic to hear all the cats tragic rescue-storys and see them so happy now! My next homework is to learn all the cats names, but for now my favorite is the Tiger Gabriella – whom I practiced my ”tiger-sound” and she answered! The sound is like as you quickly press out a lot of air trough your chins, and that is how Tigers greet eachother.
In the evening we had a seminar about how Big Cat Rescue is working for a bill which actually can prevent keeping big cats as pets, breeding to sell cubs, and other inhumane things which is touture for the cats.
My day ends at 22:00 after another class, so I can now officially touch and play with our orphan foster-kittens!
Over and out from the happiest Princess ever!
