Panama City, FL – Bear Creek Cattery. www.bearcreekfelinecenter.org. I stopped to visit my good friend Jim Broaddus and his wife, Bertie who formed and operate the Bear Creek Cattery which is an exotic cat sanctuary here in Florida. Jim is introducing a very hesitant me to one of the Colorado Mountain Lions. In addition Jim and Bertie care for and maintain their sanctuary for African Servals, Florida Panthers, Central American Jaguarundis, Siberian Lynx, African Caracals, and various North American Bobcats.
