Watch as a young bobcat smothers his rescuer with a heaping helping of love, affection, and his scent glands.
Even wildcats know when to show some appreciation, and this one is really thankful!
Here’s what a really affectionate bobcat looks like when he wants to show how much he loves you, wants to never let you go, and wants you to smell just like him.
Bobcats, like all felines, have a couple ways of “marking their territory,” and this one is doing just that. Here’s hoping that this young bobcat will end up with an organization like Big Cat Rescue, or better yet, back into the wild.
When bobcats reach maturity, they can weigh up 40 pounds and are insanely powerful for their size. It’s possible that even in a simple fit of playfulness, this wildcat could seriously hurt a young boy like this one.
I still feel like this animal is showing some kind of love, it’s just that a bobcat’s kind of love could be quite painful.
