Lakota is a 15-year-old bobcat who came with Harley and Salem, two other bobcats. We received a call that Wild Animal Orphanage (WAO) in Texas was closing down. With over 400 animals to place, we knew we had to help. These three bobcats, along with five tigers and a lion, now have a forever home at The Wildcat Sanctuary.
Unfortunately, Lakota is deaf and blind and has hematomas in both ears. He was also poorly declawed and it shows in his feet and legs.
He needs a little help to find his food, but he’s still capable of jumping up onto a fire-hose hammock so he can take his long naps.
When they first arrived they needed immediate vet care for a flea infestation and multiple types of parasites. But as soon as their treatments are complete, they will be living next to Sebastian the serval. Given they are from Texas and the shock of our Minnesota winters would be too much, they will have access to a heated building all winter.
