Phoenix, AZ – When a Phoenix homeowner noticed a bobcat kitten in the backyard, it became clear that something was amiss. The resident’s dogs were barking at the kitten and rocks tossed lightly in her direction did nothing to prompt her to move.
According to Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center, the kitten was picked up by “Rescuer Paul,” and taken to the Southwest Wildlife Clinic to be evaluated. The veterinary team could see that she had a swollen front paw – possibly the result of a snake bite or scorpion sting that got infected.
But the prognosis is good; the bobcat is expected to be back to herself following some rest, medication, and love.
