Max the pet bobcat 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… It is illegal to have bobcats as pets in Rhode Island. The cat’s owner went to court to get the cat back, but the state won. Now Max will live at Big Cat Rescue for the rest of his life!

We’re so glad we could step in and offer Max a permanent home, if you want to help put an end to the trade in wild animals as so called “pets” please visit this site to help give them a voice:

Big cats get enrichment to help prevent boredom. There are several types of enrichment including paper enrichment, sicles (popsicles) and spice bags the keepers hand out daily as well as permanent enrichment in their enclosures like dens, platforms, pools and foliage.
