Injured Bobcat Seen Again Months Later
Early this year we spent months trying to humanely trap an injured bobcat in the Brookside subdivision to no avail. Yesterday we got this message:
I received your email from my friend XXXX. This bobcat appeared at my friends front porch at 6 pm on July 4 th and then proceeded to walk across the street into the conservation area. She did note that he was holding up his left rear leg. We are wondering if the bobcat could be the cause to the 4 missing cats in our neighborhood. We live in XXXX Pasco Read More

Appx. DOB 1/1/08
Lovey is approximately five years old and was Mr. Howell's mate. She is declawed on all four paws and is missing her top right canine.
The two of them shared a cramped cage about 5'x13'. Their only shelter was a small plastic dog house that they managed to cram themselves into to escape the cold weather. The also had a tiny child's play table to perch on.
Lovey and Mr. Howell were both intact, so Lovey was spayed shortly after being rescued so that they can live together.

TAMPA - Big Cat Rescue staffers flew into town Tuesday with a 9-month-old bobcat kitten rescued from Rhode Island.
The kitten was at the center of a months-long legal battle that touched off after a Rhode Island vet seized him from someone who bought him from a backyard breeder.

Alachua-Bobcat If I had to be an animal, I would want to be a bobcat. They are fearless, adaptable, resilient and far stronger than you would expect from a 25-pound cat. They are being hunted for their pelts and sport despite their very important role in keeping the rat and vermin populations in check. They are being pushed from their homes by urban sprawl and often are killed or permanently injured when crossing busy roads to access their Read More

Cherokee was purchased at an auction at the age of six weeks. She apparently had never been handled and was very wild. Although she spent much time around people from a very young age, Cherokee is very elusive and prefers the company of her bobcat neighbors as opposed to her keepers. Cherokee loves enrichment time and when given tubes with her favorite spices in them she will flop and roll around on her back and rub her chin on the ground incesently. Keepers hand Read More
