Rescued kitten found to be Scottish wildcat

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A pair of friends who thought they'd discovered a lost cat on a snowy walk received quite a shock when they found out that they had actually picked up one of the most endangered mammals in Europe, a Scottish wildcat.

32-year-old chef Pete McNab was walking in the Cairngorms National Park with his baby son and a mate when he came across what he thought was a shivering kitten amongst a group of circled sheep.

As they approached, the sheep moved out of the way to reveal the small cat, that looks quite a bit like a tabby kitten.

Pretty little kitty. How sad they couldn't save it.

(cries) How sad..poor thing. Wonder what happened to the momma cat? Did she leave it there or perhaps the little guy wandered off exploring and got lost?

Maybe the sheep were shielding the kitten?
