Housecat Adopts Bobcat Kittens

Posted on August 6, 2010  Comments (5)

3 bobcat kittens we rescued by Big Cat rescue.

Introductions like these can be very scary because the mother cat can be overly protective of her own kittens and fatally strike out at the new comers. President, Jamie Veronica, has had a considerable amount of experience in this area though and had taken every precaution to make sure it went as well as it possibly could. Bobbi turned out to be a dream come true for three little orphaned bobcats though. She immediately pulled them in close to nurse and began to bathe them. The little bobcat babies were so startled that they hissed at her!

She ignored their resistance and just kept on loving on them. Once they figured out that this strange smelling “bobcat” mom had the real deal to offer at her breasts, they were in love too.

    I guess that the motherhood instinct is stronger than anything else. Very fortunate for the bobcat kittens.

    So adorable, I have an affinity for cats and when they are raised from young kittens they can be such affectionate critters. I have seen a video on YouTube where a Tiger was nursing piglets too.
