Why not to FREE a big cat such as a tigress?
The rare Amur tigress was saved from starvation more than a year ago after she was orphaned when poachers killed her mother.

First, rescuers nursed her back to health. Then she underwent careful training in a unique rehabilitation centre, minimising her contact with humans before halting them completely. She was taught how kill her prey and avoid danger, and finally in the last few days, she was released back into the wild.
Wearing a collar which allows satellite monitoring of her progress, Cinderella's natural instincts appear to be intact despite her traumatic start to life.
'We have already received the first data on the tigress's movement across the new territory,' said the director of ecological fund Phoenix, Sergei Beruznuk.
'Today she is moving to an area where signs of an adult male tiger were found. Scientists hope that possibly a new tiger family will appear soon and Cinderalla (Zolushka in Russian) will find her new home.'
It was in February 2012 that the tigress was found alone, sick, hungry and exhausted in the taiga of Primorsky region in the Far East of Russia.
Now around two years old, she weighs 94 kilograms and has an instinctive fear of humans: which will be crucial to her survival in the wild.
'Cinderella had to be removed from the wild and placed in the rehabilitation facility for endangered species built by the Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution together with Inspection Tiger near the village of Alexeyevka in Primorsky Krai,' said a statement by the International Fund for Animal Welfare.
'Thanks to the joint efforts of these two organisations financially supported by IFAW and the Phoenix Fund, Cinderella underwent a special rehabilitation programme. The tiger spent a year at the rehabilitation facility monitored by conservationists who were taking care of improving her physical condition and adapting her for reintroduction into the wild.
'Cinderella learned to hunt and to stalk her prey. For over six months she was feeding exclusively on live deer, hogs and raccoons that she hunted in her spacious enclosure. All contacts with humans were eliminated, and monitoring was performed remotely through video cameras.'
'The tiger is prepared to go back to the wild; she is in good physical shape; she is successfully stalking and hunting her natural prey and avoids human beings," said Dr Viatcheslav Rozhnov, Deputy-Director of the Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution'.
Mr Bereznuk added that 'thanks to the high professionalism of conservationists at the rehabilitation facility, Cinderella, we believe, is completely ready for the next - independent - stage of her life'.
Cinderella was released last week in the Bastak Nature Reserve in Primorsky Krai.
'Hopefully she will adjust successfully and will breed soon,' said Dr said Vorontsova, Vorontsova, IFAW Russia Director.
'Today, when the entire tiger population remaining in the wild is just 3,200, with approximately 400 of them in Russia, every tiger's life is precious for saving them from extinction'.
She warned: 'Tigers' habitats are shrinking. Their hunting territories decrease due to unprecedented logging and wildfires. The decline of the ungulate population (the tigers' prey base) is also of great concern.
'Poaching is flourishing because tigers are highly valued in the traditional medicine market of neighbouring China. All of these reasons lead to female tigers dying with increased frequency. Hungry and exhausted tiger cubs then wander into villages in search of food.'
Four more tiger cubs remain in the rehabilitation centre.
Three of them were found near the village of Yakovlevka, in Primorsky region, in late November-early December 2012.
The fourth cub was rescued in Kavalerovsky district of the region early this year.
Conservationists say it is still unclear whether they can release all of them into the wild.
I'm starting to believe cats are computer literate. After posting all these reasons to get a cat I've been getting a lot of angry stares from the feline race. From now own I'm going to carry cat food in my pocket just in case. (The stares are real, whether I'm going to actually carry cat food in my pockets is a bit of a stretch. Doesn't get any funnier)

A theory has arisen that the Chancellor’s beloved cat Freya who went missing from George Osborne’s home in Notting Hill in 2009 and was returned home two years later by some well-wisher, might have been recruited by some foreign spy agency and has been providing them with valuable information.
Freya is an ideal recruit, Britain's newspapers are reporting. She can freely enter government buildings and raises no suspicions on British top politicians’ side.
In 2009 when George Osborne was in opposition, he bought Freya as a gift for his children, but a few months later the pet went missing. In 2011 the Osborne family moved into Downing Street, by that time they thought the cat had gone for good. But soon the Osbornes received a phone call telling them Freya was alive and well. It turned out that Freya had been living as a stray in a garden a few streets away from the Osbornes’ Notting Hill house, lovingly fed and looked after by a neighbor who had not seen the posters.
According to residents of the London district where most governmental bodies are located, the cat might have been kidnapped by foreign spies, who implanted a bug under her skin, then waited till the cat’s hair grew and returned the tabby to its owners.
Freya is frequently seen in Red Lion Pub, the place where members of the British parliament love to go (the Westminster Palace is only a minute’s walk from the pub), and the Trafalgar Studios Theatre which is not far away from the Defense Ministry.
Three white tiger cubs were born in a Russian circus troop currently based in Irkutsk.
“The birth of tigers in captivity is generally rare, especially [for] white tigers,” RIA Novosti quoted circus trainer Mstislav Zapashny as saying.
“The tiger cubs were born in June in Novosibirsk, but we didn’t want to announce it until now. They’re less than a month old, their mother – a tiger named Alma – has accepted them and is feeding and caring for them, carrying them from the cage to the open enclosure,” Zapashny said. “We don’t handle the cubs so that their mother doesn’t reject them, but from what it looks, two are male, one is female.”
The white tiger, which is the result of a pigmentation variant, is rarely found in the wild and is practically unknown to breed in captivity.
I love cats. At the moment, I have two "écailles de tortue"...
