ZOO WARS~ALERT-Taking Action for Animals-California~New Proposed Animal Ban on HOUSE CATS-HUH?!?
Just asking…Do you actually support another ban on exotic cats?!? Now we’re talking about the little guys…those gorgeous hybrid breeds -We’re talking about House Cats!!! They make WONDERFUL pets-but according to those who support this BAD BAN…they bite, wreck Havoc, and spray-HELLO!!! What house cats doesn’t do the same?!? What do we care about the bans in Australia or New Zealand-this is the United States of American with both state and US Constitutions designed to protect life, liberty and PROPERTY!!! States that adapt to bans can be challenged and be subjected to suits being filed for discrimination for their illegal and unconstitutional bans.
*Carole Baskin (BCR) used to love having these hybrid House Cats hang out all over her home-She even had a special room built just for them…She’d play in that room with her babies and hope that these animals would breed…But now her biggest wish is to DENY YOU the same pleasure…Apparently her jealously of others who are SUCCESSFUL with their breeding programs has run away with her…She now forces these House Cats to live in outdoor cages without human contact just to make a plea for your donation to support her personal collection of cats. Most certain Baskin isn’t concerned about native animals or birds that might fall prey to these animals whether it be the ones in the cage or the ferals she allows to roam her facilities possibly spreading disease and parasites throughout the facility.
[*Bloggers Note: Remember Carole Baskin is CEO-of Big Cat Rescue (BCR) also known as Wildlife on Easy Street (WOES) With MULTIPULE VIOLATIONS OF THE ANIMAL WELFARE ACT same owner-different husband, now Howard Baskin after declaring her missing husband Don Lewis dead and inheriting MILLIONS. Now a 501-C-3 so you can support her ‘hording habit’ yet her facilities are built on an old landfill and the cats drinking water is provided by pumping water from the old retention field of that landfill. Her facilities do NOT meet the regulations. Big Cat Rescue does not have C-4 IRS clearance]
The news comes from the Animal Rights Extremists Nazis that instead of placing animals in proper homes, after all, we are taking a hybrid HOUSE CAT, is making money off your donations and supporting the Animal Rights Agenda with the sales of their products. Cut the funding and cut their sales. SAY NO to the Animal Rights Extremist Agenda, of ALL ANIMAL BANS. Poor kitty could be living a great life in someone’s home instead of being forced to live in a cage at one of these shameful facilities.*
ALDF does NOT have the best interest of animals at heart -they are a 501-C-3 with salaries paid, court fees paid with promotions supported by your donations. If ALDF lawyers could make it in the real world, then they wouldn’t be working for ALDF. ALDF demonstrates their lack of care and compassion for animal by working with Big Cat Rescue (BCR) with multiple Violations of the Animal Welfare Act!!!
Please send letter to California that you do NOT support this ban…next there will be no pure bred house cats as the attacks on ‘puppy mills’ and that includes domestic catteries War wages on…Fight for your rights to animal ownership.
Call or write and best to do both!!!

TAMPA, FL– Today, the national nonprofit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), with co-petitioners Big Cat Rescue, of Tampa, FL, Born Free USA, WildCat Haven, and Wildcat Sanctuary, submitted a petition to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) proposing a rule to amend regulations regarding the breeding and possession of controversial “hybrid” cats.
These cats are a result of interbreeding domestic cats with exotic cats. ALDF argues that these hybrid breeds, like Savannahs and Bengals, are unregulated and pose a threat to public health, native wildlife, and animal welfare in California. These trendy “Franken-felines”—popularized by high-profile owners like Kourtney Kardashian and Kristen Stewart–have sold for tens of thousands of dollars, as breeders seek to create a pet with the appearance of a wild animal.
This interbreeding creates new dangers as wild cats integrate into domestic settings. Many states have imposed restrictions on hybrid cats; Alabama, Georgia, Hawaii, Nebraska, and Rhode Island, ban hybrid cats outright, as do Australia and New Zealand.
These larger than average cats often grow up to spray, bite, and otherwise wreak havoc. Because of this, hybrid cats are at increased risk of abandonment by owners unprepared for their wild behavior. Animal shelters are hesitant to take these dangerous animals in because of the unlikelihood of their adoption. Public health concerns include increased aggressiveness and lack of an approved rabies vaccine.
“Hybrid cats almost never work out as pets because, when they are grown, they spray copious amounts of urine all over everything to mark it as theirs,” says Carole Baskin, Founder and CEO of Big Cat Rescue. She goes on to say, “That’s when we get the call to take the unwanted cat off their hands, but our cage space is dedicated to lions, tigers and other pure bred species of wild cats. The hybrid cat problem is just too big for us to even begin to accommodate. That’s why we need bans now before it gets any worse.”
Native wildlife is also threatened by the presence of hybrid cats, who possess amplified hunting prowess. ALDF’s proposed amendments ensure that California’s regulation of hybrid cats, found in 14 C.C.R. § 671, follows the state legislature’s requirements to restrict wild animals who are a “menace to native wildlife” or whose possession threatens animal welfare under Cal. Fish & Game Code §§ 2118 & 2118(i).
“Some people are drawn to the idea of owning an exotic-looking animal, but breeding these undomesticated cats causes problems for wildlife and for public safety,” said Stephen Wells, executive director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund. “Wild animals should not be fads or status symbols, and there are too many tragic endings for the families who purchase these high-priced hybrids bred for profit.”
