Chance was voluntarily relinquished from his previous owners, who took excellent care of him during his early kitten months. Chance was born wild underneath the couple’s home in July 2011. Not realizing that a mother bobcat bore a kitten under their home, the couple inadvertently chased off the adult bobcat from the property.

By the time the couple realized there was a week old kitten living under their home, it was too late to reunite the baby with its mother. Chance was now alone in the world.

The couple did not want to abandon the kitten to its fate, so they decided to raise the small wild cat themselves. Chance received excellent care during his early kitten months from this loving couple–he received veterinary care, was up-to-date on his shots, and neutered. They even went the extra mile to research the proper supplements for a bobcat kitten and ensured all his nutrutional needs were met.

Bobcats, like other wild cats, are prohibited as “pets” in certain Texas counties, and therefore, the couple wanting to obey the law and provide Chance with a “second chance” at life, decided that re-homing him was in the best interest of the young cat.

We are honored that the couple decided to place Chance with us and that this was not a rescue situation. We will do everything we can to ensure he has a wonderful life at In-Sync Exotics.

Hopefully in time, we can introduce the young kitten to Isaac and Lydia and he can form a special bond with our beautiful two bobcats.
