Remember the Big Cat Holiday videos? Pumpkins, turkeys, like that? Those are playtime; the last couple days I’ve been following the live-blog of a rescue by the Big Cat team, who fielded an SOS about a bobcat hit by a car.
Here’s the cage cam where he is recuperating from surgery after a couple of tense days, a link that should be good for a day or two after this post goes up.
It takes a little wrapping your mind around it to think about people from all over the world cheering for a little cat hit on a Florida road. Sometimes you could almost believe in human goodwill.
Every time someone does this, I figure vets learn more about how to save animals — like your pet, or a member of an endangered cat species. And probably an angel gets its wings somewhere, too.
