 Cypress the Rehab Bobcat Update Cypress the bobcat was rescued on January 4, 2014 and has been recovering in the West - Boensch Cat Hospital for these past 7 weeks.  She had been resisting eating whole prey items, such as rats and chicks, so we were getting worried that she would never switch off the ground diet we have been giving her to the real prey items that she would have to eat in the wild. We couldn't let her lose her ability to recognize prey and insisted that she eat what wild bobcats eat, but maybe Cypress knew best because Read More

Cypress

Update:  3/11/14:  Thanks to our wonderful SkipAHolics, who keep a constant eye on our hospitalized cats, we were able to detect that Cypress the bobcat was straining to defecate again.  She went in to Ehrlich Road Animal Hospital to be examined and it was clear that she is never going to heal properly and be able to pass food; not even the ground diet she's been getting.  The only humane option was to euthanize her while she was asleep. Tributes to her brief, but inspiring life, are here:  https://sites.google.com/site/bigcattributes/home/cypress-bobcat Video Read More

Precious

PRECIOUS Female Bobcat DOB 4/1/92  DOD 1/27/14 Rescued 1992   Precious came to Easy Street from an auction when she was about six months old. She is a Texas Bobcat, which is the most dramatically spotted variety. She lived in the house for a while, but she was never house broken and never trusted people. She seems happiest to have people keep their distance and admire her from afar.  She shared a 900 square foot Cat-A-Tat with Shiloh and Indian Summer for many years and then, one day, they decided they didn't like her anymore Read More

Big Cat Missing Link   A fossil recently found in the Zanda Basin in Tibet included remains of Pantera blytheae, a new species of big cat that is most closely related to the modern day snow leopard. The skull of P. blytheae is the oldest big cat fossil found to date, and fills a significant gap in the fossil record. It indicates that ancient big cats lived nearly 6 million years ago, 2 million years earlier than previously thought, and sheds light on their geographic origins in Asia.

Doing What Bobcats Do Bobcats make great neighbors but lousy pets.  More info about Living With Bobcats.   Awesome ad erases all the animals in The Lion King's opening sequence This is a great ad by Greenpeace Netherlands, brilliantly executed by Studio Smack: They erased all the animals of The Lion King's opening sequence to show kids and adults how the African savanna would look if we don't protect its animals. I can imagine the kids first puzzled, then crying, as all their favorite animals disappear leaving the beautiful Read More

Bobcat Killed by "Kindness" A Story That Breaks My Heart On Dec 27, 2013 I got a call from Scott C.  He said he had been camping with his family, including a five year old daughter, at the Saint Sebastian River Preserve State Park at 1000 Buffer Preserve Dr in Fellsmere, FL and had been approached by a young, starving, female bobcat kitten.  I asked him to send photos and he sent these.  It would be a three hour drive for me to go see if I could find her, so I immediately contacted Sherrie Wentworth of www.eastcoastwildliferehab.com and Read More

MaryAnn

Mary Ann Female bobcat Appx. DOB 1/1/08 Rescued 5/5/13   Mary Ann is approximately four years old and was bottle raised from a kitten.
