Tigerhomes Live Webcams

There's usually almost always something happening on one of the over 30 Live animal webcams at the Tigerhomes Sanctuary down in South Florida. And the owner hopes to one day soon be able to get some of these back available for night time viewing. So, sit back, and check out my blog, and then go visit them at ! You'll be so glad you did!

I would also like to note that the Sanctuary welcomes any and all donations!
I also would like to add that all pictures on this page are the property of me, Tigerkitty42 (better known to some as Kitty24) and the Tigerhomes website. The pictures on this page were taken by me while watching the live animal cams, and you can do the same while visiting the website, but you must first register. Thank you!


Night time falls on the sanctuary as Sherikon, the female Golden Tiger strolls around her habitat. Clarence, her male counterpart was over on the other side of the habitat taking a rest.


And there's no way I can do a blog without including my boy, Loki! My all time fav at the Tigerhomes Sanctuary, he is the male of the duo which includes Tundra.

Ihop's a Mom!

Back afew months ago, Ihop, one of the female Black & White lemurs, gave birth to a healthy little cutie who is growing up really fast. Here they both take a peek over the edge of the birthing nest.


Gypsy, one of the Bengal Tigers in this habitat takes a roll in the dirt!

Red Ruffed Lemur

Here is a better close-up shot of one of the Red lemurs. Aren't those eyes just awesome?!

Tort Ride

Here you can see two of the Ring-tailed Lemurs checking out one of the two Tortoises that share the same habitat with the lemurs. They all get along great and the lemurs occasionally hitch a ride!


Tundra & Loki are two of the Sanctuary's White Tigers. Here you see Tundra and she is a beauty!

Cougar Cam

Here is one of the Sanctuaries two Cougars that are making a home also at the sanctuary. There are three different views inside this habitat and soon will be back available for night-time viewing!

Ring Tailed Lemurs

Here you see a picture of afew of the Ring Tails that are currently housed at the Tigerhomes Sanctuary. Notice little Baby lemur in the food bowl!

Red Ruffed Lemurs

Two of the sanctuaries Red Ruffed Lemurs are finally back on cam! Meet Wilma & Durango! These are two of the cutest lemurs you will ever see. Newly added back to the live cams, they are now housed in the habitat where Ihop, the Black & White Lemur was housed about a month or so ago in order to give birth to her new baby.

Long Over Due

Oh Wow, I really have to apologize for not updating my Tigerhomes blog as much as I should, but unfortunately a new job I started about 4 months ago, keeps me in a very crazy schedule, and with that and volunteering at my local Humane Association, and some other things, it makes it hard to find "blogging" time. But I am here to give you some of the latest updates from the sanctuary and some of the latest pics that I have taken from the site's Live Webcams!

This is a picture of Loki, the male White tiger at the Tigerhomes sanctuary located in South Florida. You'll read more about this below and I also have a special request. Also, this picture was taken by me from the many live animal cams at the sanctuary and are the property of me and the Tigerhomes sanctuary. Thank you.

A Special Request from Me for your help

Hi everyone and I hope you're enjoying the blogs. I love being able to share this with you all and I hope you all have had a chance to visit the website. I've made an exception to the rule here and believe me, I normally never, never do this, but this is an exceptional case. I found the Tigerhomes website almost a year ago and I have been with it ever since. I can promise you there is nothing else out there on the net like this. The owner has gone above and beyond to bring the world right into his sanctuary. For many, many reasons, it is not open to the public, but he has placed over 35 webcams throughout the sanctuary in afew of the different animal habitats. This has by no means been easy for him. Now he has no idea I'm doing this but I felt the need in my heart to ask for some help for this guy. He is solely run on private donations from everyday people like you and me. As you can imagine.....the cost of feeding the animals, which include several tigers, can be outrageous, plus the cost of the website and hosting it and especially the cams, which are one of the biggest expenses. The Florida heat, the animals and other conditions can wreck havoc on cams and they are constantly needing repairs or just to be replaced. The site has over 14,000 people that view the cams monthly and how many of those do you think send in donations or even offer to help....I can tell you for a fact, not many. Everyone claims to care for the animals, and alot of them watch the cams daily, yet have never even sent in a dime to help. I for one know what hard times are all about. I'm a single mother of a teenage son and have constantly had financial issues for most of my life. I always find a way to give to the sanctuary as I believe in its mission. This guy is for real people, he's not a person out in Vegas open to the public and charging admission. He doesn't make thousands of dollars a day or even a month for that matter. This is a one man operation, with not much help at all.....sure he has a guy that comes out and helps with the yard now and again and he has acouple of Awesome guys that work on the site, but the sanctuary is all his own creation. He spent years perfecting this awesome place and last year when Katrina and Wilma hit, alot of it was destroyed in a matter of hours or even minutes. Habitats were damaged, fencing was destroyed, landscaping destroyed. It was absolutely heartbreaking. Now here it is not even a year later and repairs are still being made everyday alittle at a time. And its all being done by one man, with little or no help. He does all the building, irrigating, landscaping, cam tweaking, you name it, he does it himself. This is where the finances come in. He of course has his other bills and daily expenses that have to be met, but to him the animals and the sanctuary have always come first. I'm asking you, if you are reading this now and have not ever visited the website, or if you have and have not sent in a donation yet, to please visit the website and check it out and please find it in your heart to send in a donation of any amount, large or small. He has a very small number of monthly sponsers, but not nearly enough to meet the daily expenses he has with the animals food, vet bills when necessary, the website, the is just one major headache after another and one major expense after the other. But he keeps on going because he wants to educate the people and give them a chance to see exotic animals up close and personal in real life naturalistic habitats. This is offered no where else on the net. There is truly nothing else like it out there. They have educational dvds, adoption certificates and other things in the gift shop and you can even pay for an animals food for a day at a very low price. All I'm asking is for you to check it out and give it a chance. And like I said, any donation, any amount is more than appreciated by this man. The more donations that come in, the better it is for him and for us. He goes out of his way and works non-stop to keep the animals cared for and the site going and wants to be able to do this for a long time. Let's help him make it happen. I'm sure some of you can spare an extra $5 or even $10 or even more a month for such a good thing. I never want to see this guy have to end this and I've seen so many sites go down due to lack of funding or just plain not caring. This man truly cares and I am doing this not only for him, but mainly for the animals that live at the tigerhomes sanctuary located in South Florida. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope it has touched you in some way.

Wow I really can't believe it's been almost a month since I've updated this. I am so sorry folks, but I've been very busy lately and just not able to update as much as I'd like, but I'm doing my best to keep up with it. Alot of new exciting things still happening at the Tigerhomes Sanctuary. The White Tigers habit of Tundra and Loki got new sod awhile back and is looking great! The New Florida Panther Cam is up and running and fired up for Major night time viewing! And let's not forget it's Lemur Season! Ha! Ha! There have been several babies born over the last few weeks and plus the Black and white female lemur, Ihop, gave birth just days ago. So much going on and you have to check the site out for your self and stop by the gift shop and send a donation on your way out. I have been a supporter of TigerHomes since I found the site last July and I stand behind what they do 100%! I can guarantee that you will NOT find another place like it on the www. Check it out! You'll be glad you did!

Ihop becomes a Mom Again

One of the Sanctuaries female Black & White Lemurs, Ihop is shown here just hours after giving birth to a single lemur baby. Ihop is her own habitat for now and will be for awhile so she can recover and take care of her little one until it's ok for her to join the rest of the black and whites.

Ring-Tailed Lemur Habitat

Even the Ring-Tailed Lemurs habitat has a new cam view. During the day, these lemurs spend alot of their time lounging in this spot. And yes, that is aTortoise you see headed towards the feeding bowl!

New Florida Panther Cam

Here's a view from Cam 1 in the Tigerhome's Florida Panther habitat. These cams have been up and running for about a month now and make for some awesome viewing. I've been trying to determine the best times for viewing the cougars and found it best to be just after 7 est up until the wee hours of the morning. Naturally, they are most active in the night time hours.

More to Come in 2006

There are new and exciting things happening in 2006 for Tigerhomes Sanctuary located in Southern Florida. The sanctuary has been recovering for months from devastion from two hurricanes last season. Severe landscaping damage was done, some of the animal habitats had to be either rebuilt or repaired and the list goes on and on. The sanctuary does not receive any type of major funding and runs soley on donations from people like you and me. I do not give my hard earned bucks to just anyone, and I can tell you that I give faithfully to this organization because I believe in all it stands for and have the highest respect for the man who owns and runs it on his own. Please visit their website today and consider sending in a donation of anysize. There are still Major fencing and lighting repairs that need to be done and that does take major bucks. Go to today!

Bengal Fever

This is Clarence & Gypsy, two of the resident Bengal Tigers. Shown here they engage in a little affectionate nudging.


One of the two sanctuary resident cougars, chows down at lunchtime. This is Rebate, the male cougar. He is one big kitty for sure.


Ihop, one of the female Sanctuary Black and White Lemurs, naps in her special enclosure while waiting to give birth. She is expected to give birth within the next few weeks.

Just Chillin

Here's a pic of one of the sanctuary's White Tigers laying on the new grass. The owner is letting them in the habitat for several hours a day to see how it's going to hold up. With tigers this size it's never a permanent thing, but he wants to make it last as long as possible, but it has to have time to take root first. Tundra and Loki already seem to like it.

New Sod for Loki and Tundra

Here's an after pic of what Tundra & Loki's habitat will look like with the new Sod that the sanctuary owner laid down. The two White Tigers will not be seen in there for afew more weeks due to the new grass having to take root and have a chance to start growing. He put them in there for afew hours for acouple of days and he saw right away that it wasn't going to work. One or both of them immediately started trying to dig and claw it up in some spaces, so the tigers had to be removed again. The owner went to alot of expense to do this, and even though the grass won't last too long, he does want to make it last as long as possible, which means keeping Loki & Tundra out of the habitat for afew more weeks. This is a very expensive process and all donations are accepted and deeply appreciated. You can visit their website now at
