As sad as it is, as human populations grow, life for wild animals grows more difficult. When we clear forests and fields in order to make room for new housing, roads, and other manmade structures, the creatures that once called that land home suddenly have more problems to deal with. On top of the usual issues like finding enough food, they now face the issue of being pushed back into a smaller territory. They must learn to adapt to things that instinct can’t teach them, such as the dangers of roads. Luckily, there are humans out there who are willing to right the wrongs that many of these animals face, like Autumn, the baby bobcat in the video.

Autumn is a survivor. She ended up at Wildcat Sanctuary in Minnesota after both her sibling and mother were tragically struck by a car. Although she would be raised under the loving care of staff at the sanctuary, without a family, young Autumn would miss out on learning both the necessary survival and social behaviors that growing up among bobcats would teach her.

When two orphaned brother bobcats arrived at the sanctuary, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to give Autumn the family that she truly deserved. Wildcat Sanctuary let her scope out the two strangers from a distance as they explored their new home with kitten-like fascination before formally introducing them. As you can see in the video above, it’s like a heart-melting match made in heaven. Together, we know that they’ll have plenty of fun adventures as they grow and learn how to become fully-fledged grown-up bobcats.
