We love to celebrate the birthdays and arrival anniversaries of all the animals who reside with us at Catty Shack Ranch.  Our records do not indicate that we have any January birthday honorees.

We have many January arrival anniversaries to celebrate!  We’ll never forget January 15, 2013 when six tigers arrived in sunny Florida from 5 degree weather in Wisconsin.  The 3 “Cheeseheads”, Colby, Brie and Monterey were 6 weeks old and weighed only 9 to 11 pounds.  The youngsters, the “Fluffies”, Star, Sprout and Runty sported thick, luxurious fur coats (and a layer of body fat!) suitable for keeping them warm in cold weather.  What changes we’ve watched as they all have grown and thrived in our loving care!Tal, male African lion

Long Tail and No Tail, two of the cougars, arrived on January 19, 2001.  They enjoy sunning themselves on their platforms and watching over their cougar and horse pasture neighbors.

On January 29, 2008, Tal the lion arrived.  He reigns majestically over the back area of the Ranch, taking care of his beloved lady, Nyra.

Come visit the Ranch and celebrate all these animals’ anniversaries.  We love you Colby, Brie, Monterey, Star, Sprout, Runty, Long Tail, No Tail and Tal
