A Loving Cat Adopts An Orphaned Baby Bobcat

Last month, rescuers from the Millstone Wildlife Center in New Hampshire were alerted to a baby bobcat who’d been abandoned by her mother.

Fortunately, it was discovered that the 6-week-old kitten was physically healthy, but not mentally. She sobbed in pain and loneliness from being apart from her mother.

In collaboration with another rescue agency called Spicy Cats, an unusual solution was found to help with “play time, snuggle time, and a little help with grooming too,” they said.

The solution’s name was Honey, a “feline volunteer” who had already been a mother of many previous litters.

A video of the two meeting for the first time is sweet as pie, with the two comfortable and crawling all over each other right away.

“We’re not sure how long Honey will be staying with us, but we are sure by the purrs of the bobkitten that the solution is perfect for now,” they said.

Being in Honeybun’s presence, the bobcat kitten’s broken heart quickly healed. Honeybun, meanwhile, has taken to her rambunctious foster baby with the patience of a saint.

“It totally warms my heart to see them together,” Caroline said. “As far as we know, this hasn’t been tried before, so it was a bit of a gamble, but I’m thrilled they are doing so great.”

As soon as the cub has gained more weight, she will be taken to live with other bobcats at the Milstone Wildlife Center, are will then be prepared for life in the wild. This is why volunteers have chosen a fellow furry friend to handle the majority of her early care, rather than humans.

“In her first 3 weeks here, she has doubled her length and weight,” the center confirmed on Monday. They are reportedly planning for a successful release in the spring.
