ORLANDO, Fla. — A not-so-ordinary feline was dropped off at a Florida fire department Thursday.
The Orlando Fire Department said a man dropped off what he thought was a cheetah cub. The fire crew said they started Googling “baby cheetah” and realized it was actually a bobkitten.
Fire station employees sent photos of the kitten to the Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge and Education Center, which then sent a manager to the fire station. The wildlife expert told them the kitten was a 2-week-old female bobcat—not a cheetah.
The rescue took in the kitten and is nursing her.
