Cute Orphaned Scottish Wildcats Rescued by Wildcat Haven

Two Scottish wildcat kittens were rescued by the conservation group Wildcat Haven, after they were spotted by a member of the public. Sadly the kittens are orphans, a wildlife filmmaker using specialist equipment conducted a thorough search but the found no trace of their mother, the two young kittens were so lucky to have been rescued as they were taken to a purpose built release centre set up by conservation and tourism group Highland Titles. They will grow up there safe in their own fenced acre of forest, complete with dens, a stream, and expert care from the Wildcat Haven team who will return them to the wild when they are old enough to live independently.

Wildcat haven explains: “There are as few as 35 Scottish wildcats left in the world, they are threatened by hybridisation (cross-mating) with domestic cats, habitat loss, and human persecution. Even most of the official captive program is hybridised, neutered and only used for public awareness.”
