Previously house pets, Patrick and Mariah are sibling bobcats were born in captivity and legally obtained by their previous owner at 8 weeks old where they were heavily socialized and well taken care of. Their owner became ill and under doctor’s orders, was forced to find a suitable home for them. She contacted our facility and we were able to allow permanent placement of the bobcats in September 2014. They are both spayed/neutered and declawed. Mariah is smaller than Patrick and is a lot more vocal, especially at mealtime.
