Status:Male Bobcat - Captive Raised, Education Animal, Permanent Resident
Age:7 year(s), 11 month(s)
Quincey came to us on 07/29/10 and was brought to us by a private individual who found it in the wild.
Quincey and his brother Rineheart entered our program as kittens. Unfortunately, they contracted a very contagious, and very fatal virus called panleukopenia. Here at NBRR, due to the high volumes of bobcats that come through the doors, we do vaccinate against this virus. Unfortunately, we can ony vaccinate at a certain age, and kittens are suceptable at any age. We were unable to save Rineheart, but Quincey pulled through.
The intensity of the treatment required to save the life of a kitten with panleuk, in wild bobcats, often translates into an animal too severly imprinted on people to be released. We had high hopes that Quincey would wild up enough to return to his world. Unfortunately, Quincey had other ideas.
Quincey is simply not available for placement. He has shown too much potential as an education animal at this time. If he passes, he will be the first education program bobcat in the nation.
