June 5, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Some rescued tigers in Florida are beating the heat by taking bubble baths.

It gets very hot on Deborah Warrick's Animal Reserve in St. Augustine. So she helps her tigers cool off during the summer with two or three bubble baths each week.

The suds are scented with milk and honey or lavender. Besides smelling good, it keeps the flies off of the big cats for a few days.

The reserve is a non-profit animal rescue mission that takes in all sorts of wild cats, wolves and birds.
