COLBERT, Wash. — Bad news if you wanted to see some big cats this week—Cat Tales Wildlife Center is temporarily closing down due to the extreme heat outside.

The organization shared an update on their website saying they will likely be closed through July 1, and their open hours are subject to change.

Anyone who pre-purchased a ticket will still be able to visit once the center reopens. Cat Tales says they will honor any pre-purchased tickets.

In the meantime, staff will be working to keep the animals safe through the excessive heat warning.
