Our Weekly Wrap Up!

As another week comes to a close, we are reminded at just how blessed we are to have a group of wonderful staff and volunteers caring for our beautiful animals!  Like we do every Friday, we re-cap the weekly news events and add a little something extra for our fans to enjoy!

On Monday, we introduced you to Quisto, a 5-year old Brazilian Ocelot, who is part of the Species Survival Program.  To learn more about this amazing animal, please click HERE.

Tuesday, we reported on the relocation of Jasper, Chance, Lydia, and Isaac.  Where did they go, you ask?  Well, you'll just have to click HERE to find out! 

We had a special guest blog writer, Janis Danner, who wrote her first Cat-O-Tonic History Tales blog posting!  She did a terrific job researching the third largest big cat species and then writing a blog posting for us to enjoy--so click HERE and be prepared to learning something new today!

Yesterday, was the 1st Anniversary of the Zanesville animal massacre.  This day will forever be remembered as a day when the world was shocked into grief over the loss of so many beautiful animals.

We want people to know that the 49 massacred animals, and all captive animals inhumanely killed over the years, will not be forgotten. Their silent cries, carried by the winds of time, will be heard and remembered—starting tonight at our 1st Annual Exotic Animal Awareness Candle Light Vigil. 
We would love to have you join us tonight as we come together to say goodbye to the animals whose lives were unexpectedly snuffed out because of horrible acts committed by uncaring persons and to pledge not to turn away from the cries of animals clearly needing our help.  Here are the details of tonight's vigil:

Event: 1st Annual Exotic Animal Awareness Candle Light Vigil
Date: Friday, October 19, 2012
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00pm
Location: In-Sync Exotics
We close today's blog with some new videos of Quisto as he explores his new home!  Quisto is now living in the empty enclosure next to two bobcats, Moses and Otis.  Quisto's former animal caretaker visited Quisto this week to see how our boy was settling in his new environment.  We learned that Quisto loves cardboard boxes, so we made a little box bed for Quisto to enjoy and placed it in his new house. 

Little Quisto is still shy but he is slowly checking out his new home! 

Will Quisto venture outside?  

And we have an update on how Mr. Kibo and Shira, two servals that arrived last week, are doing!  Did Neffie accept the brother-sister pair?  Let's see?
Hello Mr. Kibo!

Our new servals resting together!

Beautiful Shira!

Success!  Neffie joined Mr. Kibo and Shira in the serval house!
We close today's blog with videos of Gideon and Chance playing together! 


We hope you enjoyed this week's blog postings and that will join us again next week for more informative, funny, and interesting blog postings on our exotic animals!

  1. Oh yay! I'm so glad Neffie has some playmates now! Poor sad baby girl. :( And I'm sure Kibo & Shira's mom is happy to hear it too. :)
