Another Week Comes to a Close!

Whew!  Another busy, busy week at In-Sync Exotics!!

We started the week with a posting about Spike's Day at the Vet.  Spike, our former Poetry cougar, traveled to the vet because we were concerned with how he was walking. At first, his gait did not concern us, since Spike is almost 17 years old, and we thought he might be having some age-related issues. However, once Spike started to walk around like he had inebriated hind legs, we knew something was wrong. While Spike had no difficulty running and playing, we noticed he did have issues walking around at a normal pace.

So Spike, Vicky, and Paul made the trip to Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine, located in College Station.  Is was a long day for all, but we discovered what was ailing our cougar.  Click HERE to read more about Spike's trip to the vet!

On Tuesday, we shared with our readers what Jasper, our new bobcat, likes to eat a night.  For several days, Jasper refused to eat the raw meat, bones, and treats we provide all our bobcats.  Thankfully, Vicky was able to solve the mystery of our finicky feline's favorite food.  Click HERE to read more on this story!

Okemo, a tiger from the now closed Wild Animal Orphanage, is loved by many volunteers and staff.  Just look into his soft eyes and listen to him gruff as he greets people and you'll know why is has a lot of supporters! 

As many of you may know, our beautiful Okemo is battling a serious health condition.  Okemo was diagnosed as having squamous cell carcinoma that spread to his jaw bone--it is literally eating away most of his jaw bone. In this posting, we provided our readers with an update on Okemo's medical condition.  Click HERE to read more about Okemo and his latest health challenge.

Yesterday we sent out a public P-A-R-T-Y invitation to our blog readers (that includes you and yours, of course!) announcing our Big Birthday Bash scheduled for June 16th from 11am - 4pm.  This is a great event for the entire family, so be sure to mark your calendar and make plans to attend this special birthday party with the cats!

Since we still had a few items  left on our Easter Celebration Wish List, we thought the "b-day bash" would be extra special if the cats received some birthday presents from the same list now retitled "Birthday Bash!"  We have updated the wish list link with just the items our animals would love to play with during the Birthday Bash.  Click HERE for the list!  So far, a few gifts have already been purchased -- THANK YOU!! Yea!!!   We would love to see every animal receive a special  "b-day present" this year, so  please consider gifting an egg, ball, big chew toy, or X-large Kong for our wild ones!  They simply loved their Easter presents and we'd love to see their faces when they first see their birthday presents too! Thank you!

We would also like to say THANK YOU to the individuals who donated towards Spike's medical care!  We truly have the best supporters!  If you would like to contribute towards Spike's medical care, please click HERE.  Spike says "thank you" for helping him during his time of need!

Thank you everyone for helping us keep our animals fed, watered, housed, enriched, treated, and loved!  Your donations and gifts makes a difference in the lives of animals who truly needed a second change at loving life again!

Just a "few" pipes for the
"Fast Track Cheetah Habitat!"
If you have been following us on Twitter and Facebook, then you know we have received the construction materials for our cheetah's "Fast Track Habitat" and we are ready to build Sam and Kodi's new home!  If you would like to be a part of this momentous occasion, we would love to have you come out and help us begin construction of their new home this weekend!  Work begins at 10:00am, weather permitting, and will continue until we close for the day.  Many thanks!

Well, this concludes this week's blog postings!  We hope you have a safe and wonderful weekend and remember to treat MOM to lots of good food and fun!  We are open this weekend, so bring MOM out to see the cats -- the visit should certainly bring a smile to her face!  When MOM is happy, everyone is happy, right?

Be safe everyone!
