Man Saves Stray Kitten Then Realizes She Isn’t What She Seems
Jared Allen Yost, a resident from Minnesota rescued a “stray” kitten when he heard a kitten crying in a car. Because he is an animal lover, he didn’t hesitate to take a closer look and saved the cat.
With no mother and the bad weather, he brought her home and fed her, not realizing that she was not just a stray cat. Yost began to notice that there was something a little off about this cat. She kept making a loud sound not like a normal meow.
He began to suspect it was not a house cat and contacted Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota. The “stray kitten” was actually a bobcat. Yost brought her to the rehab center to get the help she needed. Normally, they would do a quick health check on the animal and have the finder return it back to where it was found to hopefully be reunited. Any orphaned wild animal should go to a licensed rehabber as soon as possible.
Though Yost’s time with the little bobcat was brief, he’s happy to have had the chance to help her. She will spend a few days stabilizing at center then the staffs will transfer her to another rehabber who works with bobcats. She will eventually return to the wild.
