Meet RJ, Our Bobcat

A commercial truck driver spotted RJ in the road while driving near the Los Angeles County town of Acton. The bobcat appeared near death and he brought it home, thinking it was a domestic kitten. Once it was realized that the kitten was a bobcat, authorities were called and a volunteer from the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach picked up the bobcat who then turned it over to Fund for Animals - a San Diego organization that rehabilitates and releases animals back into the wild. They determined that the cat had too much human contact and would not be safe if released and decided that the best future for him would be a lifetime home at Lions Tigers & Bears.

Lions Tigers & Bears caretakers are a bit skeptical of the trucker story in that RJ was very used to people and his physical characteristics did not resemble those of a local bobcat. It's possible that RJ was the result of captive breeding, a huge problem in the United States. Nonetheless, he is fortunate to be at Lions Tigers & Bears.

And, lucky for RJ, one of our generous donors stepped up with a contribution which allowed us to give him a lifetime home.
