New Serval and 2 Rehab Bobcat Kittens Are On The Way to Big Cat Rescue! Carole is on her way back to the sanctuary from Jupiter, Florida where she has just picked up an 11-year-old serval and 2 four-month-old bobcat kittens! If you would like to donate to the care of these precious new cats, you can do so at www.bigcatrescue.org/rescue Carole got a call from the new management of the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter asking if we could take in Hutch the serval; he was previously a pet. Hutch will now be a permanent resident at Big Cat Rescue. Our keepers are readying a nice big enclosure for Hutch to live in and enjoy once he arrives in Tampa! 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 will move 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 Hutch and 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! www.bigcatrescue.org/rescue If you want to help name them names MUST BE submitted by messenger at https://m.me/bigcatrescue
