Kansas Bobcat a Big Hit at California Park

KSAL StaffOctober 28, 2014

A tiny bobcat that was rescued from a central Kansas oil rig is proving to be a big hit at a northern California wildlife refuge.

The Great Bend Tribune reports the little cat, called “Whisper,” was brought to the Great Bend-Brit Spaugh Zoo this spring. She was sent in late May to Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding, California.

Turtle Bay animal curator Sharon Clay estimates Whisper was about 3 weeks old when she arrived there. She’s now about 6 months old and weighs 13 pounds, and is expected to remain small.

The California park has made Whisper an animal ambassador, easy to introduce to visitors because of her sweet nature. The staff has taught her to walk on a leash and sit on command.
