Journey the Rehab Bobcat Kitten
When orphaned bobcat kittens come to us for rehab and release, we try to limit imprinting on humans by having rescued mother cats, from our foster kitten program, nurture them. This kitten, Journey, died of Panleukopenia, less than 24 hours after this video, because he was too young to vaccinate (2 wks) and must have arrived with it. The mother cat had to be quarantined, to be sure she wasn't sick, but she has been given a clean bill of health. It breaks our heart to lose, even one small life like Journey's, but we have to look beyond the pain to the enormous need and keep trying.
