Big Cat Week: Facts about big cats in India.

This week is Big Cat Week at Cats Protection, so in honour our Himalayan trek and tiger conservation experience in 2017, we’re discovering the big cats of India.

As the Kanha National Park served as inspiration to author Rudyard Kipling when writing The Jungle Book – and the same park will be visited by participants in our challenge event – we thought it’d be fun to find out some facts about the real big cats in the story.
