If you would like to donate to the care of these precious new bobcat kittens, you can do so HERE.
Carole got a call from the new management of the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter asking if we could take in 2 orphaned bobcat kittens to finish their rehab for release back to the wild.
The Florida native wild bobcat kittens arrived at Busch Wildlife as skinny orphans when they were just four weeks old. Busch Wildlife believed they were good candidates for rehabilitation and release and started the process of making sure they didn’t get used to people as they grew up.
But they don’t have the state-of-the-art rehab facility that Big Cat Rescue does, so they asked us to complete the kittens’ rehab. The kittens moved into our rehab area and we will teach them how to hunt and survive in the wild. Once they are old enough, they will be released together.
Can these adorable kittens count on your help to care for them at our sanctuary? Thank you for your ongoing support! More photos and videos to come!
Did you know that wild cats can suffer from all of the same diseases that affect domestic cats? Because of that we have to vaccinate all of our rehab bobcats too. It’s a lot harder to do because we are making sure they stay wild while in our care, and they don’t trust us coming close to them, like our permanent residents do.
The odds here may be four to one, Lucky and Clover are doing their best to keep from being netted and vaccinated. These ladies have nerves of steel and hearts of gold.
