The baby bobcat came in to the SC Wildlife Rehabber, JoAnne on Dec 4 weighing 4.2 lbs, with a broken jaw, split canine and comatose.

They figured he had been hit by a car, but couldn’t believe that he survived.
After he woke up from the coma he was pretty loopy, but they figured the impact had done brain damage.
They had to wire the jaw shut, tube feed him and removed the broken canine. He is still only 5.7 lbs, but is eating solids on his own and doing much better despite walking into walls and getting stuck in corners. If he comes to a corner, he just sits down and waits, and waits, and waits, as if he cannot figure out that he is not trapped.
He was having bad and frequent seizures, but those have almost subsided.
The Florida Wildlife Commission were sweet hearts and helped make sure his transfer would go as swiftly and easily for the little guy as possible. A big SHOUT OUT to everyone there who were so kind to this little bobcat kitten.
He will be living in the on site Cat Hospital until he is bigger and stronger.  You can watch his progress live at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bigcathospital
