Glenn

History

Glenn is a male bobcat who arrived at the sanctuary in 2020. He was estimated to be about two years old at the time.

He was found on the side of the road in California, emaciated and full of ticks. Animal Control was able to walk right up and put a net on him, which isn’t the way a wild bobcat would act at all!

That’s why the California rehabber who took him in suspected he’d been captive bred. Sadly, he appears to be yet another bobcat purchased as a pet and then released.

Life at the Sanctuary

We made the 2000-mile, cross-country journey to pick up Glenn, and another bobcat in need of a home, from the rehabber in California. They both began settling in well here at the sanctuary after their long trip.

Behavior-wise, he’s very timid and likes to hide. He’s not aggressive at all. In the beginning, we could tell he was a sweet boy. He’d peek out from the bushes and follow along as caretakers were nearby.

Life at the Sanctuary

Initially, we had Glenn in a habitat next door to his travel mate, bobcat Sarge.  They hadn’t lived together at the rehab center and weren’t related, but they seemed rather bonded. Later, we successfully merged the two and it’s been wonderful for Glenn!

His relationship with Sarge has benefitted Glenn so much. Sarge is the support system shy Glenn needed to feel confident. Now, Glenn will actually come into his lockout area for feeding. And the boys were later merged with female bobcat Morgan.

Wherever you find Sarge, who’s the bigger bobcat, you can rest assured that his buddy Glenn is close by. Seeing Glenn able to live out his days as he wants is the best thing ever!
