This is a bit of a departure for us but it serves as a reminder: wild animals are not house pets! Thanks to the our friends at HooplaHa, we can share a special story with you that points this out.
Less than a year old, little Morgan the Bobcat was found, of all places, in a room at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in California. One of the workers had brought her across the border and realized she was too much to handle so he left her in a room. The story quickly spread and actress Morgan Fairchild took it upon herself to find a place for the little Wildcat, hence the Bobcat's name, Morgan. She quickly found her a home at The Wildcat Sanctuary in Minnesota. Meanwhile, Shalico, a Canadian Lynx, was also bought as a pet by a college student whose father said this was not a pet. She, too, quickly found a new home at The Wildcat Sanctuary.
Since both wildcats were young at the time, the workers decided to introduce them. Cats of different species don't often co-mingle but this turned out to be the exception, especially since they were young. It was love at first sight and they soon became inseparable. A happy ending to what might of been a disaster. Here's a video of Morgan and Shalico, perfect friends forever.
