I've been to a similar place in Tampa called Wildlife on Easy Street (can't remember the website address - I'm sure you can get there through Google). When we went the first time we were allowed to interact with the cats and shared a fenced yard with our cabin in the middle with two white Servals.
Since we went the first time they have changed a lot of their policies - including the overnight stays (I think) and they don't allow the interaction with the Cats that they used to. Because of our first stay I have some priceless pictures and wonderful memories but realize now that we forgot the one fundamental rule in interactions of this sort. These animals are WILD, even if they have been raised as pets (why do you think the owners could no longer handle them?). We never know when their wildness will kick into gear, and I don't want to be in their way when it does.
Thanks for sharing the website. I enjoyed that and the other pictures it led to. It is an awesome thing to see these cats that we've admired so long from afar up close and personal.
BTW, I learned how to get the lens of my camera to focus in the open spots of the fences and got a few pictures without the fence in them. Didn't work every time, but I had to try!!
