In Cat Chat 26 Carole Baskin talks with Rebecca, Maria, Monica, Cecelia and tried to include Luanne and Rich, but did not manage the technical issues to get them on the show.  Monica talked about the history of how the Skip A Holics got their name and others chatted about how becoming part of the Big Cat Rescue family changed their lives for the better.  It is an hour long show where you can get to know a few of the people, behind the scenes, who volunteer for Big Cat Rescue from their homes.  These are amazing people who have saved exotic cat lives right from their computers.
