Leopard Cat Kitten Rescued

A young Leopard Cat Prionailurus bengalensis has been rescued from a construction site of a hillside in Taiwan. A woman spotted the orphan wildcat covered in mud near a few working excavators in the vicinity. She thought it was a domestic cat and took it home to her care. Later, she discovered that what she brought home was in fact a Leopard Cat, a small wild cat often seen in East Asia. She contacted the local wildlife rescue center where the wild kitten was checked out by a vet and given the proper care it needs.

The kitten is estimated to be 2 months old and healthy. They are currently rehabilitating the little wildcat and getting it ready before releasing it back to the wild.
