People love cats so it’s only natural that so many people would want to help a cat in distress. In Tennessee, a middle aged couple found a kitten wandering around their back porch. Not wanting the kitten to be left alone, they took it to the vet. That’s when they got the shock of their life.

Their “kitten” was actually a bobcat. The baby bobcat, named Pearl, was taken to the For Fox Sake Wildlife Rescue in Chattanooga where it can interact with other bobcats and hopefully grow up to live a happy life, thanks to the intervention of a couple in Tennessee.
