Female Bobcat DOB 5/13/03 Rescued 6/4/03
Lost and alone, little Bailey wandered out in search of the mother who would never return and was discovered by a local woman about the same time as she was being discovered by a hawk
The woman called Big Cat Rescue to see if there was anything we could do to save the tiny kitten, who was only about 5 or 6 weeks old, from being euthanized. We picked her up and will provide her with a home for the rest of her expected 20 years.
Because of being handled by so many people during her stay in the shelter, she was not a candidate for release back to the wild. If she were to find herself hungry and unable to hunt, she wouldn’t know that approaching a human would mean certain death.
