Aurelius Augustus Caesar - just called Augie for short - was brought to Cat Tales attention by the Regional Animal Services of King County in 2013. He has been kept by a private owner as a pet and 'service' animal, having been declawed and neutered for this purpose. Though he has been rescued from this home, Augie needed a permanent place to live out his life in peace. And so in August, the zoo director and curator drove over 50 miles in order to rescue him and bring him back to Cat Tales.
Unfortunately these stories are all too common, and many bobcat kittens taken from the wild end up given to rescues as adults, just like Augie. It is our goal to make sure they all adapt as well as he has, and live their life with just as much joy.
