We hope your 4th of July was fun!  For those of us involved in rescue work, there is no resting on holidays and this July 4th was no exception.  That’s when Kasha, the Bengal, arrived here at The Wildcat Sanctuary.



A small non-profit cat rescue contacted The Wildcat Sanctuary asking us if we would accept Kasha, an F1 Bengal, into our sanctuary. 


The rescue group had been called about a cat that had shown up in a couple’s barn. It took several months of feeding the cat before they were able to trap her. The rescue group realized this wasn’t an ordinary domestic cat. She was confirmed to be an F1 Bengal – a hybrid crossbred between an Asian Leopard Cat and a Domestic Cat. Kasha does not enjoy attention from humans and paced rapidly in front of her window all day in her foster room.


The rescue group vetted and spayed Kasha and took their personal time to fly with her all the way to the Sanctuary.  They spend their time saving feral cats and helping Kasha was extremely important to them.  Like us, they do not believe hybrids make good pets.  Learn about a petition we have joined to restrict hybrid ownership. 


We will keep you updated as Kasha merges into a bungalow in Hybrid Haven with cats of her own kind.  You can help provide care for cats like Kasha by becoming a sponsor parent to her or other residents at TWS.


We are thankful for such a compassionate and committed rescue group who took the time to find sanctuary for this little princess. And we are thankful to you, since it’s your support that allows us to help cats in need.
