In this video, Big Cat Rescue in Florida offers us a peek at how four of their rescued bobcat kittens, Pheonix, Captiva, Rain, and Dancer, are doing. Hint: they’re all heart-meltingly cute.
Phoenix survived a forest fire and lost her mother. After three days, rescuers gave up hope of a happy reunion. Captiva was trapped by humans and held captive for three days in a tiny cage without food or water until the humans responsible realized that they couldn’t take care of her. Thankfully, they were both saved from these horrible situations due to the intervention of Big Cat Rescue.
The second pair of bobcat kittens you see in the video, Rain and Dancer, came to Big Cat Rescue after being found on a highway in Lake Placid. When the woman who rescued them brought them to her vet, she asked if she could keep the kittens as pets, but the vet tech (rightfully) denied her request and got to work on finding a rehab facility for the two.
Big Cat Rescue is committed to rehabilitating all four kittens until they’re able to return to their home in the wild. Although these babies don’t look so different from domestic cats, they require specialized care that’s best left to the professionals.
We can’t wait to see the epic release videos when these rehabilitated cats are big enough to return to the wild!
