A Note From a Woman That Came to Visit

26/01/12 0 COMMENTS

Good Afternoon Mrs. Rosaire,

I recently took my daughter to the Big Cat Habitat Extravaganza. I can’t begin to tell you how much we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. From the moment we arrived to the last minute riding the Elephant! I work at the Ritz-Carlton as a concierge for the Residents who live here and I know that the hotel has always been involved with this wonderful organization and as a concierge I have had many people inquire about the facility. Now I can finally say how Wonderful it is and how great of a job you and your son have done organizing it. The show was spectacular, both of you are so funny and I can tell you really enjoy what you do and truly love those beautiful animals. We weren’t expecting to be so blown away. I have to tell you, I have already recommended the Big Cat Habitat to so many of my residents and guests here at the Ritz-Carlton. Thank you so much for providing a fantastic fun day for me and my daughter. We look forward to coming back soon!!

Sandy the Lion

21/05/11 0 COMMENTS

It is with great sadness that we must tell you that we have lost Sandy, the year-old lion who underwent surgery on Friday. While the surgery seemed to go very well, she passed away suddenly today despite the efforts to help her. She was well-loved by everyone here, and we are sad to lose her. Many thanks to all of you who have asked about her and shown us your caring and concern.

To say we are heartbroken is an understatement. She will be deeply missed.
