Holiday spoiler alert: Most store-bought desserts and baked sweets — everything from cookies and cupcakes to donuts and pies — use palm oil. The good news is that with a bit of a time investment, you can bake your own goods and avoid palm oil altogether.

The rescue decided it couldn’t take cat species, such as snow leopards and Canadian lynx, that require a cold climate. At least not at this time. The decision shows Carolina Tiger’s dedication to its rescue, education and conservation efforts.
