  • Seeing these animals up close and watching them eat was amazing! Hearing their stories of rescue and watching them interact was so interesting!  more »
  • Had the best experience at Catty Shack. My husband and I got to see the night feeding. Was absolutely , out of my expectations, amazing sight of big cats turn their wild side on once the food arrives....  more »
  • Judge not by the entrance nor the location!!! Go for the feeding!!! So cool!!! These folks plan a major expansion, it may become one of two reasons to visit Jacksonville, the other being Orsay.  more »
