Serval Rescue by Big Cat Rescue

Esmerelda was a trophy pet. She and her mate were the exotic pets of a millionaire and were used to impress his guests, but when her mate fell ill to cancer and the chemotherapy caused all of his fur to fall out, their owner dumped them as if they were yesterday's trash. Her mate lost his battle to cancer many years ago. Our vet suspects the cats' diet, human grade beef and chicken, is key to so many exotic cats dying from cancer. The hormones and antibiotics that go into food that is mass processed for humans kills smaller animals more quickly than it does us. Unfortunately, cats are carnivores and can not survive on a vegetarian diet.
