Buddy the bobcat was a former wild pet

Buddy, a bobcat, was seized from a person who had him illegally in California. TWS was contacted because the owner’s paperwork showed he was purchased from a breeder in Minnesota and authorities wanted to track down the person who sold him. We agreed to take Buddy into our program. He was incredibly thin when he arrived in 2006 and had terrible scarring on his neck from an ill-fitted collar.

After a few months, Buddy put on weight, put on a beautiful silver coat and now can always be found purring and rubbing on his enclosure wall. He loves all sorts of enrichment and is the first to mark his new toys.

You can help provide daily care for Buddy by sponsoring him today.  Your support is greatly appreciated.
