fawwwwwn + bobcat

In Santa Barbara , CA last week's fire caused these two to take shelter together. The fawn is 3 days old and the bobcat about 3 weeks. The fawn came from somewhere in the fire and Animal Planet is reporting the bobcat kitten was rescued near Arnold Schwarzeneggers ranch, where it was dehydrated and near death.

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, and since they had run out of crates large enough for the fawn, the two animals ended up under a desk snuggled together in the Santa Barbara County Dispatch Office for several hours. It was instant bonding.
