Lions, Tigers and Rubbermaid! Oh My!

IMG_2097What do lions and tigers have to do with Rubbermaid products sold by RJ Cox?  You wouldn’t think there was any kind of correlation between big cats and the popular line of Rubbermaid items we stock and sell to our wonderful customers.  And here at RJ Cox Engineering, we would have never put the two together either.  But that was before Joanne’s trip to the States.

In the past, we’ve shared the humble beginnings of Rubbermaid with readers of our blog   We’ve provided you details of all the outstanding features and durability of products like Rubbermaid Baby Change Tables and recycling products.  However, we’ve never been able to show you how Rubbermaid can take on the biggest cats that prowl the planet until now.

Of course, we don’t know of any of customers who have pumas, leopards, lions or tigers roaming their place of work.  But if there are any of you out there, please, by all means share those photos and testimonials!  Okay, back to the matter at hand.

On a recent trip to the United States, we just happened to find Rubbermaid products in a work-environment like no other we’ve seen before.  That environment was at the The Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Indiana.


IMG_2102And if you want to see how durable and tough Rubbermaid products are, then this was the place to come.

From our photo, you can see that the centre is using this Rubbermaid product in a way its designers most likely never imagined it being used.  But it is not really the oversized, watering dish for big cats that we want to focus on with this post.  What we really would like to do is to give our readers an introduction to this wonderful rescue centre, its amazing staff and beautiful, big cats.

Here’s a quick overview of the EFRC off of their website.  “With over 225 exotic felines calling the EFRC home, we are one of the largest rescue centers in the United States for abused, unwanted and neglected exotic felines.  Since its founding in 1991, the EFRC

has served as a nationally recognised leader in big cat rescue, conservation and care.”  We encourage you to learn more about the EFRC on their website.

If you are in the States, we recommend a visit to The Exotic Feline Rescue Center.  You can even stay overnight and spend some time with the keepers visiting areas not open to the general public.  And if you have a love for these big cats but will never be venturing to the area, you can still support the centre’s mission with donations or by making a purchase in their online store.

Lions, tigers and Rubbermaid:  Now that is a phrase we here at RJ Cox never imagined using.  But after our visit to this wonderful rescue centre for big cats, it is one we are glad we had the opportunity to experience in person.
