Female Bobcat DOB appx. 07/22 Rescued 1/22/22

Winter Bobcat was rescued in New Tampa after a caller reported a very skinny, disoriented, shaking, wobbling bobcat in their driveway.

When she arrived, she weighed only half of what would be healthy at a mere 6 lbs 4 oz. She 12 hours in her crate, where we couldn’t see her so everyone was waiting breathlessly to see if she made it through the first night.

It was eventually assumed that her wobbling may be a result of FLM, (Feline Leukomyelopothy) which is a mysterious neurological disorder afflicting Florida’s wildcats. She is not a candidate for release back into the wild.
