BIG (but little) news!

 

It has been a busy time for the carnivores at Fossil Rim (Glen Rose, TX). The AZA accredited wildlife center is thrilled to announce the birth of two black-footed cat litters!

 

The first litter (two little boys) was born to female Afryea on March 31st. The second litter was born to Bandit on April 16th (one girl and one boy).

The birth of these two litters is extremely important to the black-footed cat population as there are less than 75 individuals in captivity worldwide, with less than 40 in the US. Most of Fossil Rim’s BFCs (including these families) are kept behind the scenes to aid in their reproductive success and keep the area they stay in as quiet as possible.

Those cats are precious and am very happy to hear about the 4 little black-footed kitties. I hope they continue to thrive and that many more are born in the future!

Thanks for sharing all those adorable pics! ❤️
