Tao is a 9-year-old female bobcat. She’s very independent and already very vocal, giving us her bobcat grumble to tell us who’s in charge.

Tao loves her food, which is pretty obvious by her Santa-like body!

Sadly having been 4-paw declawed, Tao will need to trim down a bit to prevent arthritis. We’ll be able to help her slowly with that by tailoring a special diet for her and providing lots of exercise opportunities in her new habitat.

We loved seeing her explore her temporary habitat and tall perch right away. She even curled up in her indoor bungalow the first night.

Would you consider being a sponsor parent for Tao?

Our sponsorship program is what pays for her daily care expenses, which can really add up over a lifetime.

Our sponsors receive photos and updates about their wild cats whenever they’d like. And it’s so important for the cats to be loved and cared for by their sponsor parents from afar, too.

Bobcat sponsorships are just $300 annually, or you can break it up into payments of $25/month.
