If you grew up with a cat, you probably know that they have an affinity for holiday decorations. In their eyes, Christmas trees aren’t decorations but a combination cat toy holder/something to sleep under/climb/chew on. And when it’s fall, there are plenty of mini pumpkins for them to bat around and figurines to knock off shelves (we speculate they do this to see if gravity is still in working order). Even though DNA, size, and behavior separate wildcats from the ones we share our homes with, they still like to have fun like cats. Luckily, Wildcat Sanctuary is always there to provide its residents with plenty of seasonally-appropriate enrichment.
Autumn, Francis, and Belvedere, the three bobcat kittens in the video, did not always live at Wildcat Sanctuary. Autumn was left orphaned when her mother was tragically struck by a car. Francis and Belvedere, on the other hand, are siblings who were taken in by a human. It is unknown whether or not their mother had actually passed away or whether she was away hunting, but due to the difficulties of raising a wild animal, they ended up at Wildcat Sanctuary. Soon after, they were introduced to Autumn, and the three have been as thick as thieves ever since.
At Wildcat Sanctuary, all three will be taken care of by humans, but from a distance, as they figure out the ins and outs of what it means to be a grown-up bobcat. Until they’re ready to take on the world, however, they may as well have fun celebrating a few human holidays! And it sure looks like Halloween ranks as one of their favorites!
