A kind man in Minnesota heard a kitten crying one night and investigated, finding her alone in a parking lot. After taking her home, he started to notice a few things that made her different from the average kitty: She had really big paws for her size and a strange meow…
He suspected she might not be a regular domestic cat and turned her into the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota. The staff there were grateful he found the bob-kitten and turned her in, as she was lost and could have easily been injured or hit by a car. She was luckily in good shape and just a bit dehydrated. They said since she was left overnight, it would be risky to try and reunite her with her mom and best to care for her. She is set to be taken in by a rehabber that specializes in bobcats.
A rescued stray kitten turned out to not be what the finder expected. Join us in welcoming our first bobcat kitten of the summer! Due to the location found (a car lot in a busy setting) and the fact that it was alone overnight, we determined the risk to her health in attempting a reunite wasn't as important as getting her into care. She'll spend a few days here stabilizing then we'll transfer her to another rehabber who works with bobcats. She'll eventually return to the wild. In the meantime… Enjoy! #notapet #wildliferehab #wildlife #wildlifehospital #keepthemwild
