Not Your Ordinary Kitten (Bobcat)

How and when did you get your pet?
My neighbor was clearing land in a remote area a mile off the road. When he pushed over some logs, two kittens came tumbling out. It was strange as there were no houses close by. It was the middle of July and hot so he put them in the shade and brought them home after he finished working.

One was injured and he did not make it but the other one was doing fine being fed kitten formula with a bottle. His wife had found someone that wanted a kitten so she had a good home for it when it was old enough to give away.

After some research, she discovered, instead of a domestic kitten, she had a wild bobcat kitten.

They had fallen in love with this little fellow but knew they could not keep it so they turned it over to a wild animal rescue. Parting was bittersweet but she felt he was in good hands.


I love this story and tried to get her to join Thriftyfun and enter it but she would not do it. With her permission, I'm sharing it for her.

For her birthday, my neighbor received this picture of Baxter and the bobcat. Of course, she cried. This is such a sweet picture and what makes it so special is the dog. He was one of the smartest and sweetest dogs I have ever known and was loved by so many.


He became very sick and in August, they had to put him down. It was like losing a member of the family.
