While a wild animal is not a pet and does not belong in a home, sometimes fate has other plans. Especially if a rescue occurs and the animal, like the one in this story, cannot be integrated back into the wild. A couple was driving down a busy road when the wife saw a tiny figure on the shoulder. The little creature was moving! What was it, and did it need help? The couple pulled over to find out, not knowing they were about to encounter a baby animal in need.

The wild animal was actually a newborn bobcat. He meowed at the couple as soon as the wife rolled down her car window. He knew that he needed help and cried out accordingly. They couldn’t believe he was out there on his own! He’d never survive, and they felt they had no other choice but to intervene.

The woman carefully scooped him up using a blanket and carried him to their vehicle. The baby desperately clung to her, relieved he was being cared for. His face says it all when he looks up at her with grateful eyes. It’s such a heart-melting scene. The woman adoringly looks down at him while falling in love with the tiny baby.

The couple brings him home and nurses him around the clock. The baby bobcat is so sweet! Now that he’s been handled by people and was obviously an orphan, they felt sending him back to the wild wasn’t an option. The little one had lost his natural instincts to defend himself and find food on his own. Luckily, the state the couple lives in allows certain residents to own bobcats. The baby grows up to be a dashing gentleman, even experiencing snow for the first time.

A story like this should not influence anyone to go out and seek a wild animal for a pet. If you see a wild animal in distress, alert the appropriate authorities so the animal can be handled accordingly. To see the heartwarming rescue, play the video below.
