We just had to share this vid of our two pirate tigers, Savanna and Solano, having a little convo. It’s just too cute! (Taken from @bigcatderek Vine). #tiger #pirate #argh #bigcat #bigcatsofinstagram

Dahlia celebrated her 6 month birthday in August. To celebrate the cutest llama in the world, we posted a little tribute on YouTube. Find us at CARE Rescue Texas to see it! #llama #baby #rescue #cute

The cubs got their first taste of chicken this weekend, which is a huge step in their development! Check out the video on YouTube (CARE Rescue Texas) to find out who loved the new menu and who was wondering where his baa-baa was! #lions #cubs #bigcats #bigcatsofinstagram

Melita at just 13 weeks old!

This pic of her playing with some pumpkins serves two purposes! 

First, it’s to celebrate Pita’s 9th bday which was yesterday. Second, it is to tell you that we have started planning our 4th annual Fall Festival! Save the date for November 8, 9, 15, and 16 and make plans to come visit us and celebrate the big cats’ favorite time of the year! More details will be coming soon! #tiger #cub #pumpkin #fall #fallfest #fun

Guess what! We finished the lemur enclosure expansion this weekend and Miss Stewart, Mort, and Rita got to explore it for the first time (Bindi the coati will move into her section a little later).

You can watch a full video of our little friends exploring their new digs on our webpage or find us on YouTube (CARE Rescue Texas)! #lemur #ringtaillemur #rescue
