'Cause That's Alachua Bob

Alachua Bob reminds us that you don't have to make noise to make a difference. You can be quiet, remain in the background and support a cause. He has compassion and love in his heart for cats around the world and wants to remind you of some of the ways you can support the cats at the sanctuary.

Everyday, go to, and click on the bone that says "Feed A Big Cat." This helps to financially support the daily feedings of the cats. Another way to support their cause is to click on "Take Action" and sign the current petitions that will give the cats a voice to enact new legislation for their benefit. You can also recycle ink cartridges and schedule a tour to see some of your favorite cats at the sanctuary. Education is key whenever you support a cause. Take time to learn why the cats are at Big Cat Rescue and why the sanctuary came into being. Alachua Bob is sharing his favorite cause with you. Help support him, along with the other cats, so in the future, sanctuaries will only be a memory.

Who Am I?

No one expected me to live after I had been hurt. However, my purpose in life was just beginning. After arriving at the sanctuary, I started to support other cats with their causes and helped them make transitions. It didn't matter what kind of transition they were choosing. I can do this for any cat in the world. You will not often see me because I am a peaceful, wise, old soul and in my wisdom, I keep quiet and hidden. When you think of me, know I would not kill anything, and you will guess who I am.

Victorious Papa Bear

Papa Bear is not confused about who he is. The outer world has taken away some of his physical parts which has caused him great pain and discomfort. Instead of withdrawing and seeing himself as a victim, Papa Bear has let go of the experience of having his toes cut off that could prove to be self-limiting and adversely affect his life. By letting go, he has transformed himself.

Papa Bear's heart can help your heart expand and change naturally if you are ready to let go of a negative experience that has kept you from fulfilling your potential. He knows in order to grow, you have to look deep into your heart and courageously let go. When you are ready, relax and let go of any thoughts. As your mind gets quiet, ask Papa Bear permission to share his courage with you. Feel his courage. Feel who he is.

Choose one physical experience that has left you with the feeling of missing a part of yourself. Expand your choices and see yourself making a different choice that will empower you. See the outcome of that experience as positive and restoring your missing part of your Being. Let go of the experience because NOW you have transformed naturally by choosing a power choice that keeps you whole and doesn't leave a part of you behind. You are a different person. You will never make the same choice again. You will never have the same experience again. It is gone forever because you have now reclaimed that part of you that was missing. Papa Bear has helped you create a new inner landscape. He knows you can only lose something that you have. You cannot lose something that you are because you are One with everything that Is.

Who Am I?

An unusual creature, I am. I heard I was the world's largest rat. To prove it, my toes were cut off, and my tail was shaved. No one knew what I was. Rescued and now living in a quiet place, I can enjoy my favorite activity-eating. I love raw eggs and will break them, slurping the tasty liquid until it is gone. The rats know I am scared of them and will run away when they come to steal my food. But, I don't mind sharing. I am grateful I have food. Are you confused about who I am?

Caring Catera

Catera, a Southern Bobcat, knows what it is like to have family members see you as crazy. Nature has a way of cleansing itself, and when an animal is born with a defect that threatens their survival, the mother will often kill it. In our society, when people are born with defects, this is unacceptable and people survive physically. However, in their hearts, they often carry words that have been spoken to them that slowly kills their spirit, shutting down their life force.

You do not have to be born with defects for people to say cruel words. If you have been hurt by family members and are ready to release the pain in your heart, Catera knows a secret that will give you the power to be whole. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Ask Catera his permission to help you. Feel the presence of Catera enter your heart. Group the feelings together that have hurt you such as anger, fear or rejection. When you have them grouped together, take a deep breath in and as you breathe out, blow each group of feelings into a balloon, keeping the group of feelings in separate balloons. When you have filled the balloons, release them and ask Catera to watch with you as they float away until you no longer see them. They are gone forever. Thank Catera for this wisdom as he has helped you to release the emotions that have been quietly killing you. Catera promises you will now be able to see everyday new and exciting.

Who Am I?

You may think I am brain damaged. My mother did and tried to kill me before I was rescued. I see myself as liking things organized. It is easier for me to understand if everything is grouped together that is alike. I learn quickly if there is order, same thing here, same thing there. Everyday is a new and exciting day. Nothing is the same for me. I always see something new and different. Do you remember who I am?
