North American Bobcat

(lynx rufus) Photo: Winterman's Wildlife Images My name is “Sapphire.”  I am a North American Bobcat and my species is indigenous to the State of Florida.  My original owner lived in California. When his fiancee demanded “me or the cat” he drove her cross country to live with us at Bear Creek.  Now, I have a family and I am happy!  My handsome mate is named “Crockett” and I have a spoiled, and beautiful daughter named “Tiger Lily.” We also have “Sweet Pea”- sister wife to Crockett. She is a Texas range bobcat from Arkansas, donated by a rescue to enrich the breeding program at Bear Creek.
