Meet our Canada Lynx
8/25/20 — Cat Tales Wildlife Center welcomes a new member to the animal family. Jynx the Lynx, a 12-year-old Canada Lynx, arrived at Cat Tales after we were contacted regarding his lifelong owner and bonded caregiver, Jon, who had recently passed away. A longtime friend of Jon’s who was the executor to Jynx’s care and placement, reached out to Cat Tales to find a forever home for this orphaned lynx. Cat Tales staff drove to Orofino, ID last week to meet Jynx, and transported him to his new home in Mead, WA. Jynx will take some time to settle into his new home, new animal neighbors, and become comfortable with his new humans, who are excited to get to know Jynx.
“Wow, he’s huge!” said Wildlife Director, Debbie Wyche, when Jynx arrived at Cat Tales. It’s true, he is much bigger than Sibella, and he appears to be in quite good health, something that often is not the case when we receive rescues from the private sector.
Born May 10, 2018, came to us at Cat Tales in September 2018 when she was four months old. For her first months with us she lived in our nursery, being handled by a few dedicated keepers on a day by day basis to get her comfortable with health checks. As her personality developed, she moved outside near our canines, and then more recently into the Small Cat Forest next to Jynx the Lynx.
Needless to say, Sibella has fully grown into herself! She's a vibrant, curious little Canadian Lynx who loves to play with Jynx through their enclosure walls and follow our keepers around when they clean her house. Sibella is loving her life in her new home!
