Meet our big cousins

Mum and Dad went out ALL day today.
When they eventually came back they told us they had been to see our big cousins at a place called Rutland Falconry and Owl Centre.
At first we were like, ‘what do you mean our cousins, we’re not birds!’
But then they explained that the centre also has a number of cats… big cats.
Six times a year humans are allowed to go and see some of our rarer relatives.

In all there are six large kitty cats there, including four Amur Leopards which have been classified as critically endangered. There are only 35 of them left in the wild, which means they must be even more accident prone than Henry.
Our large furry friends normally live in Russia, China and even Korea and their population is still in decline, threatened by increasing damage to their habitat by deforestation and excessive tree-logging.
Mum and Dad took a load of pictures and a cool video of these big cats, which you can see in this post.
And if you want to adopt your very own big cat – even bigger than Archie! – then you can do so for just £35.
Our friends at the bird place say: ‘By adopting one, not only are you helping to give these individual cats a long happy existence but by looking after the cats here at the centre we are able to educate and highlight the problems that these leopards are facing in the wild on a daily basis’.
For more information and to find out how to adopt one of these big beasts call 07778152814.
Go on, help a cat out…

  1. Hi, It sounds like mum and dad had a great time…!!! And the idea of adoption is just fabulous… I couldn’t see most of the pics though; don’t know why but they just wouldn’t show themselves… maybe they’re shy…!! 😉
