The Jesusita Fire in Santa Barbara, CA this year caused these two
to take shelter together. The fawn is about 3 days old and the
bobcat about 3 weeks.
They immediately bonded and snuggled together under a desk in the
Santa Barbara County Dispatch Office for several hours.
Animal Planet is reporting the bobcat kitten was rescued near
Arnold Schwarzenegger's ranch, where it was dehydrated and near
They rescued the fawn during the wildfire. Although wild animals,
especially of separate species, are never placed together due to
regulations, in this emergency situation, they had no choice. During
the mayhem of the fire, they were forced to put animals anywhere
they could, since they had run out of crates large enough for the
fawn. The kitten ran to the fawn, and it was instant bonding.
