Saving a Baby Bobcat: The Heartwarming Tale of Finding Her a New Companion

Following a difficult beginning, a young bobcat who was left without her sibling discovered a companion to aid in her recovery.

The Florida Wildlife Hospital Sanctuary in Palm Shores, Florida recently took in a feeble and malnourished bobcat kitten, who was discovered alongside her sibling in a backyard pond. Unfortunately, her brother didn’t make it. When rescued, bobcat kittens frequently struggle to survive without their companions in the wilderness. As a result, the team at the sanctuary recognized the significance of pairing her with a companion for rehabilitation, and thus began their search.

The Florida Wildlife Hospital Sanctuary came across a potential addition to their animal family from a different wildlife center. This was a young bobcat, who was unfortunately being kept as an illegal pet. After introducing the two kittens, they hit it off and formed an instant friendship.

The Florida Wildlife Hospital Sanctuary had high hopes for the young bobcat to help its companion regain its wild nature. The sanctuary aims to prepare both felines to become independent hunters before they can be reintroduced into the wild.

The personnel at Florida Wildlife Hospital Sanctuary don’t release the baby animals until they are certain that the little ones are capable of surviving on their own.

The Florida Wildlife Hospital Sanctuary had a bobcat kit that was too friendly and lacked fear, which posed a problem. They found a solution by sending the kit to a permanent facility with other bobcats. Meanwhile, the other kit has made a new friend, as shown in this video.
