how we can use different scents to enrich our cats' environment. Well, zoos have been doing this with big cats for several years, and now even field researchers.

Turns out Calvin Klein is a favorite for many big cats. General curator Dr. Patrick Thomas of the World Conservation Society explains.

  • Good stuff Steve. I heard a rumor that some of the big cats at LPZOO may be getting some pumpkins today for enrichment:) Safe, seasonal fun. I'll try to get some video and pass it along.
