I pray and hope with all my heart that they are successful at raising the money needed to care for all of the cats and to find housing that is needed. I wish I could do more but I am already donating over $100 a month to various other charities and groups in need. Best of luck to them and I will follow this story and hopefully I may find a way to donate. Thanks for Chering.

I will pray that they will be relocated to suitable premises. So sad their owner can no longer care for them.

I pray that all these cats are rescued to a good sanctuary. This is another reason why we need to forbid wild animal ownership. These people have these wild animals for their own gratification then expect others to clean up their messes for them. This man is the one who needs to be charged with their relocation and upkeep. Use this situation as an example of why we need to stop wild animal ownership.

Big cats don't belong in captivity. The problem with most of the tigers in captivity is the inbreeding and I sincerely hope that is not the case here. Good luck.
