PAWS Christmas Wish List


  • Meat: Chicken, Beef, Turkey, Buffalo
  • Spices: Cinnamon, Vanilla, Mint, Lavender
  • Dollar Store-type, or any cologne (enrichment for big cat habitats)

 Just because I guess I am ignorant, can any of you zoo type's explain to me what "Dollar store-type cologne" has to do with enriching a big cat's habitat.

I would be worried about the made in China fumes being breathed in by the cats.

Come on 'zoo type',that's a bit racist.Does that make you a 'Carni', then. I much prefer elephant handler. In answer to your question, fragrances have been used in carnivore enrichment for over 20 years now.

Right, listen to the hooligan pommy calling me racist.... That's the point, I was under the assumption that their animals shit didn't stink. Just the carnies animals. I was also under the assumption that "enrichment" has something to do with making the animal's quality of life better. I have never had any of my tiger's object to their smell, but to be fair, I have never asked them for their thought's on the subject. I shall do that promptly this morning. I'm thinking it is more "public relations" on PAWS end, and they are bullshitting it into "enrichment" to loosen the purse string's a bit more.

Be safe mate,

Wade, the fragrence item made me wonder as well. Will you please post the response you get when you discuss this with them?

I am not holding my breath, waiting for any kind of response from them. "Discussing" suggests an opposing view point, and they don't take kindly to that. Telling you, and expecting you to meekly comply, as you know nothing about what they speak, and then parroting to others, as unknowing as you, is how they respond to anything.
