      @ImaG0Hard This is an accident waiting to happen and we do not agree with facilities that have contact with their big cats.

      @Suzan4B Yep, it’s a gopro camera, we could get the close shots of the cats eating with it 🙂

      @jaysonic100 Yes it’s at the beginning of the video, they’re old, many of our cats had existing health when we rescued them, most of the cats we rescue were also on poor diets since birth.

      @emilygclarinet That’s a good question, but for captive cats, food is the highlight of their day so no matter how shy they may be we can take our time and get them to take the meds, we also have an extra large stick so we can place the meds & meat on the end and get it to within inches of their mouth and all they have to do is take the piece of meat without leaving their den! 🙂

      @killerex010 Our operant conditioning program is what we use to get our animals to perform basic natural moves, we do not train them to do tricks. They are moves so we can observe the cats form every angle to make sure they look good and healthy, we are producing a video of our operant program in the future so it will be fully explained, but it’s definitely a positive experience for the cats and an enjoyable thing for them 🙂

    10. BigCatRescue Says:

      @horse14t Sure!

    11. BigCatRescue Says:

      @fennmanic22 Exactly! Video in the future to explain our operant conditioning program 🙂

      @johndominicmassa They associate the click with the? treat, which acts a a bridge between their correct move and their food treat (positive reinforcement) video coming soon 🙂

      @BigCatRescue Commanding them to sit is technically a trick. Especially giving them treats only after they sit.

      Brilliant vid! I use cheese as a cover up for my domestic cat! Works most of the time. Very annoying when they find the pill though.
      I don’t suppose you could wrap a tiger in a towel and try to prise their jaws open to drop the pill in. Might loose a favoured limb!

      @killerex010 It is not a trick for the expressed purpose of amusing human beings.

      @Jaclyn11495 It’s worth pointing out that BCR is about 2 hours away from Orlando in west Tampa.

      @L337Kelly I knowww thats why my mom has to think about it bc she said its pretty far

      How do you train big cats? With a dog, if they are getting a bit aggressive you can give out to them, if they try nip you, for example.. With big cats, if you are training them trying to give treats or praise them when they do something good, but when they start being bold how do you teach them to stop?
