They thought they were saving a kitten in the middle of the road but she was no ordinary kitten
A kitten was spotted huddling in the middle of the road when good Samaritans spotted her and immediately stopped their car. The driver ran into traffic to rescue the scared kitten when he realized that this was no ordinary kitten.
"When this little bobcat was separated from her mom, and found in the middle of the road, good samaritans turned her in at a clinic in the middle of the state," Big Cat Rescue wrote.
Big Cat Rescue, in Tampa Florida, came to pick up the bobcat who showed how feisty she could be.
"Even though handling her is difficult, it's exactly what we want for her. She needs to see humans as the enemy if she is going to survive in the wild one day."
She was a bit underweight but was otherwise healthy.
In many cases, wild animals relocate after their natural habitat gets developed due to urbanization.
During that time the young wild cats easily get lost from their mother and siblings. They don't know exactly how this bobcat kitten got separated from her group, but she will get a chance she deserves to be rehabilitated.
They named her Spirit Feather. "Feather was a tribute to our blessed Little Feather, but this little bobcat showed us that Spirit just had to be part of her new name."
This 2 and a half month old will stay at Big Cat Rescue for 3 months before she's ready to be released.
They gave her a stuffed animal friend for her to cuddle and plenty of cardboard boxes to play in while she gets stronger.
Big Cat Rescue continues to educate the public about big cats while helping animals like Spirit Feather rehabilitate and get back on their lives.
