We were very pleasantly surprised. The gift shop had many educational facts about the cats including the scull from a saber tooth tiger. During our walk there were several areas with shade which was a relief from the sun. Although a small area we had the chance to walk around several times and got to see cats that weren't walking...

The Cat House is not a zoo. It is a exotic feline breeding program. The cats are healthy and well cared for. I travel to the area for work and I always make time to stop by The Cat House. They are doing amazing work. And according to their FB page they have some sand cat kittens ... I would... More

I don't like animals in cages but actually it looked like they were pretty good! They have big cages and food, they look healthy and quiet. I loved that park! I saw many different kind of cats, only the tigers didn't show up but I could see all the other animals by doing a second tour! Beautiful animals and also... More

A few things to look for in the gift shop - the saber tooth skull donated to them by the Paige museum is easy to see, but the tiger canines in the case with it are harder to spot. The three large displays that house the Asian Golden Cat, the North Chinese Leopard in a shipping crate, and a Clouded... More

Wasn't optimistic after some of the reviews, but turned out to be an enjoyable 90 minutes. You can get within 3 feet of most of the varied collection of cats. Unlike most zoos, the cats were moving in their enclosures when we visited - stretching, climbing, pacing. A big difference from the typical zoo where the large cats are usually... More

My husband and I live 20 minutes from the facility and decided to take the drive out to the EFBG. We were pleasantly surprised. The facility is small, but you are able to get a lot closer to the cats than you would be able to in a traditional zoo. The cats all looked healthy and happy. The staff was... More

I am a volunteer here at EFBC's Feline Conservation Center. Not only that our facility is amazing to volunteer at but we take conservation efforts serious for these beautiful wild felines. We house a total of 71 wild cats ranging from tigers to sand cats. Granted, not all of the cats will be on display to the general public however,... More

I visited with friends in from out of the country while we had some time to spare. We drove out to the facility not expecting over much. We walked in and were greeted by friendly staff, peacocks and peahens, several LARGE Ravens and some of the most beautiful cats I have seen. They were well loved and cared for. The... More

This is a breeding compound to prevent endangered species from becoming extinct. Very clean compound out in the desert area of Rosamond. They are doing a great service & worth checking out. Some of the staff weren't able to answer simple questions about the cats which was curious. Nice drive from Tehachapi thru the Wind Farm Pass -- that was... More

We enjoyed our visit here. It is very well kept. For how small it is I think the price is a bit high. It was a long drive with not much else in the area to do or see. I know it is expensive to maintain a place like this, not somewhere I would return for the price probably not... More
