“Unique and interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We try to bring the grandkids out here every year. It is fun to see the big cats so close up. Cat Tales is always clean and the cats seem to be well and given good care. These are usually rescue animals.

“Somewhat depressing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is reminiscent of zoos in the 50s and 60s. Animals in small enclosures and little stimulation. I'm sure they have a clear rationale for their breeding program, but I don't know that I can see it being in the best interests of the animals.

“Love the big cats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

They are doing a wonderful job here for animals that would not have elsewhere to go. The caretakers are knowledgeable and the cats are definitely well cared for, despite their small location.

“Cats and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

They have a lot of cats and a few bears. They are improving the park more. They are a place that retrieves animals who are in trouble. The workers are great people and care for the animals. They have a good variety of tirgers and Lions. It can take you a few hours if you take your time to look at the animals.
