Poachers' guns and dwindling forest habitats are thinning worldwide populations of big cats, leaving only 150 Amur leopards and 800 Siberian tigers to straddle the line between survival and extinction. But here in the high desert north of Los Angeles, in the shadow of an abandoned gold mine, the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound is a haven for more than 50 of the animals, including the Amur leopards and Siberian tigers, North Chinese leopards, clouded leopards and jaguarundis.

Natasha, an eight-foot long, 375-pound Siberian tiger was a hot cat on a recent sizzling summer day here in the middle of the Mojave Desert. The 2-year-old stood straight up on her hind legs and stretched against her cage, towering over tiny, 4-foot-2 keeper Jean May. May, 38, a volunteer at the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound, cooled off Natasha by spraying her with water from a hose. Natasha obviously relished the shower, after which she nimbly jumped into a full bathtub in her cage.
