Week in Review!

What an exciting week we had at In-Sync Exotics!  Here's a quick recap of what our week was like! 

On Monday, we reported some wonderful news that Jasmine is no longer living alone in Aladdin's Castle!  Okemo moved in the quarters next to Jasmine and now both senior tigers are getting to know each other.  It's great to see these two older cats getting along together so well this week, spending quality nose-to-nose time together through their vet chute and chuffing up a storm! Jasmine's cries have finally deceased thanks to Okemo!

Our Tuesday posting covered the terrific turnout of the 3rd Annual Tiger Trot with lots of great pictures and a wonderful video highlighting our special event.  Jodi Payson gave us some great behind-the-scene information about the Tiger Trot event that raised $8,490.00 for the animals!  Thank you everyone for your participation and/or volunteerism in this special memorable run/walk!  Our Facebook page has additional pictures of the Tiger Trot that you just have to see!

Did you catch our Wednesday posting of In-Sync Exotics' Turkey Toss?  Our local Wal-Mart donated 42 turkeys which the cats absolutely loved!  Needless to say, we had no turkey leftovers the next day.  Each large cat received his or her own bird, and the smaller cats received half a turkey or just a drumstick, depending on the size of the animal.

Even our guests enjoyed tasty treats--thanks to Fawn Payson, who brought the cookies and most of the decorations, and to Darla Ellington for her efforts in acquiring six donated cake pans of rainbow colored icing from our local Albertsons, folks were able to decorate their own cookies and eat them while watching the cats chomp on their birds.  Thank you Albertsons for your generous and tasty contribution to our event this year!

On Thursday, we reported on Chloe's trip to the vet.  You may recall Chloe is one of the former Poetry cougars that was rescued from Poetry, Texas back in July of this year.

Chloe went to the vet Wednesday for possible surgery because earlier in the week our lead keeper, Mak, noticed her right ear was swollen due to a hematoma.  How did her trip to the vet go?  Well, you'll just have to read the posting to learn how this story ended!

Special Updates:

On Monday we'll give you instructions on how you can pre-order your very own 2012 In-Sync Exotics calendar!!  You may want to order more than one to give as gifts seeing how they are absolutely gorgeous!

If you haven't visited the In-Sync Exotics on-line Gift Shop, well you don't know what you are missing!  Not only do we have gift cards, ornaments, mugs, and Christmas stockings (which are all fabulous by the way!!), but we also have kitchen/project aprons, stadium blankets, remembrance necklaces of Raja & Jasmine, pillows, cuddly teddy bears, "Kashama" pajamas, and special on-line tee shirts.  New products are added almost every day, so check back often for specials and new gift ideas for your family, friends, and of course, for yourself!  Proceeds from the Gift Shop goes towards the care and feeding of our exotic wild ones; thank you very much from the animals of In-Sync Exotics!

As a reminder, there will be fabulous tasty treats up for grabs December 12th, thanks to "Big Sis and Lil Sis!"

We are very fortunate this year because "Big Sis and Lil Sis" selected In-Sync Exotics as their fundraiser of choice for their Christmas Bake Sale!  Last year, "Big Sis and Lil Sis" raised more than $3,200 for their charity of choice. 

This year, the ladies would like to raise $4,000 for In-Sync Exotics! Read all about this upcoming event here and be prepare to be dazzled by their tasty holiday treats!

So until next week, we hope you have a wonderful weekend and we hope to see you at our special Christmas Lights with the Cats tours!
