Lovely cat - Caroline, South Yorkshire,

We rescued a Mekong bobcat kitten about ten weeks old. It had been dropped off. At a dairy farm across the street from us. We thought it was Siamese until we learned otherwise on the internet. The kitten was painfully thin but now is looking good.the humane society said we had a female but turns out his male organs had not descended yet . He is very sociable, loyal, and athletic. A very entertaining pet to have. And he came. To us for free, and he brought us luck. How fortunate we are, 2
