ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- It gets hot down on Deborah Warrick's farm, and she helps her animals beat the heat in luxury, one cap full at a time.

"We have eight tigers and during the summer we'll give them two or three bubble baths a week," said Warrick, who operates the St. Augustine Wild Reserve. 

She even gives them one of two scents: either milk and honey or lavender scented suds.

"Oh and they come out of the bath smelling so good." 

That keeps the flies off of them for a couple days. So besides keeping the cats cool, it helps them beat the pests as well.

The Reserve is a non-profit animal rescue mission that takes in all sorts of wild cats, wolves, coyotes and birds. They even have a female deer that freely walks around the grounds (the predators are in cages, so no worries).
