Male Bobcat
DOB 6/2/97


Running Bear was born in 1997.  He was neutered and lived with Little White Dove until she died at the advanced age of 21.  He pretends to be tough, but can't help but show his silly side when enrichment is involved.

Most of our bobcats were rescued from fur farms where they were being raised to slaughter for their fur.  Some were being sold at auction where taxidermists would buy them and club them to death in the parking lot.  But a few, like Running Bear, were born here in the early days when we mistakenly believed the breeders and dealers when they told us that these cats should be bred for “conservation.”

Once we learned that this kind of breeding does NOT contribute to conservation in the wild we began neutering and spaying our cats in the mid 1990’s and we became the leading advocate for focusing on preserving cats in the wild and not breeding these intelligent, magnificent animals for an unnatural life in a cage

Running Bear & Little White Dove

by J.P. Richardson
Tee Bobcats Running Bear & Little White DoveOn the banks of the river, stood Running Bear, young Indian brave.

On the other side of the river stood a lovely Indian maid.

Little White Dove was her name, such a lovely sight to see.

But their tribes fought with each other, so their love could never be.

Chorus:

Running Bear loved Little White Dove with a love big as the sky.

Running Bear loved Little White Dove with a love that couldn't die.

He couldn't swim the raging river, because the river was too wide.

He couldn't reach his Little White Dove waiting on the other side.

In the moonlight he could see her blowing kisses cross the waves.

Her little heart was beating faster waiting there for her brave.

Chorus:

Running Bear loved Little White Dove with a love big as the sky.

Running Bear loved Little White Dove with a love that couldn't die.

Running Bear dove in the water, Little White Dove did the same.

As they swam up to each other through the swirling stream they came.

As their hands touched and their lips met, the raging river pulled them down.

Now they'll always be together in that happy hunting ground.

Chorus:

Running Bear loved Little White Dove with a love big as the sky.

Running Bear loved Little White Dove with a love that couldn't die.
