The Answer to "What Is It?" Wednesday

Posted Saturday, September 22, 2012, at 9:06 PM

For those who wondered about the answer to our question Wednesday, the guesses were "kitten" and "bobcat". To the best of our knowledge, those are both right!

The rest of the story: We received a call about a wild kitten on the Marshall Square earlier this week. When the kitten was brought in, it didn't look (or sound!) like any domestic kitten we'd ever seen, and we suspected that it was a bobcat kitten. After consultation with an agent from the Conservation Department, we were advised to release the animal in the country, in the woods, and this was done. This just goes to show that you never know what will happen next at the Animal Shelter!
