I really hope this incident doesn’t affect their ability to keep their license and keep doing the work that they do. Although I doubt there’s really much risk to people, it’s clearly a bad situation from a potential public safety standpoint, and definitely from a public relations standpoint.

I’ve been out to the Center a few times with my family, and they do good work. I plan on continuing to support them however I can. Many of their cats are rescued from abusive situations, each one has its own story and history to it. Many of their stories reflect very badly on how we, as a society treat animals. The Center doesn’t buy, sell or breed cats. They also don’t put them down once they start getting a bit too old to be photogenic for the paying customers. I’ll never feel comfortable watching big cats in a circus or other commercial performance, since visiting the Center.
