Great Human Race a Success!

It was a cold, rainy day for the 2008 Great Human Race, but it didn't dampen the CPT team's spirits! (although some of our "ears" were drooping) This year's race raised $7,953 to help CPT's wildcats. Thanks to all CPT Volunteers that made the day fun and worthwhile!

Animal Profile - Bocca Caracal

Bocca may be one of CPTs friendliest caracals and Id venture to say she is certainly the feistiest! Her friendly nature shows itself when she calls to people she knows when they are standing at another enclosure. When you arrive, she may make a kind of chirruping sound in greeting and she rubs her chin and face back and forth against the fence this is how she uses the scent glands on her cheeks to mark her territory.

During her 13 years at CPT, Bocca has not always been in an enclosure alone, but experience has shown that she is happy by herself which is the natural state of things for caracals in the wild. She has a dominant character, which has caused her to challenge males put in with her; in addition, her enthusiastic grooming of other cats has been so vigorous that she gave them bald spots! She can also be very good at catching birds who stray too near.
