Our first baby bobcats of the season have arrived!
We recently rescued two 5-day-old kittens after they were orphaned. They are in good hands at Tucson Wildlife Center and are fed throughout the day, every two to three hours. As the kittens get older, the time between feedings will increase. Eventually they will be switched to solid foods. Once they are eating on their own, the kittens will be placed with one of our foster bobcat moms who will raise them until they are old enough to be released to the wild, where they belong.
While some organizations and businesses have been forced to close, Tucson Wildlife Center has continued to answer the needs of all sick, injured and orphaned wildlife during this pandemic. Our emergency phone line will continue to be answered 24/7 every day. Our hospital will remain staffed with veterinarians, animal care specialists and other essential personnel to ensure there is no interruption in care.
