2. Biologists from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida discovered the kitten at the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge.
The Florida panther is an endangered breed, so they decided to rescue the little kitten to further conservation efforts.
3. “We want to give any panther kitten the best opportunity to survive in the wild. But clearly this kitten…almost certainly would have died without intervention,” said FWC veterinarian Dr. Mark Cunningham.
5. From there, he went to Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, where he’s proudly the “fourth kitten and eighth panther to receive rehabilitation at the zoo,” according to the FWC.
8. …and they’re hoping to move him to a more meat-based diet soon.
9. Because he was so discovered so young, he won’t be returned to the wild…
10. …but when he’s old enough, he’ll live in the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park to “help to raise awareness and aid with potential research efforts,” according to the FWC.
13. Luckily, he’s very healthy and super cute, no matter what his name is.
