{Edited to add: this is not my Craigslist ad. I found it in "Best of Craigslist."}

4 May 2019 **UPDATE** FOUND CAT - NEED OWNERS ASAP!! lost & found richmond, VA

UPDATE: thank you to everyone who told me this is actually a WILD BOBCAT!!!





UPDATE: thank you to everyone who told me this is actually a WILD BOBCAT!!!🤯 Wtf!!! No wonder he was so grumpy!! I kidnapped him!! 🤣 I am not from America and have never heard of bobcat, I thought all wild cats are much bigger than that!! I can not believe I brought it inside!! And he pissed all over my damn house so now I have to deep clean everything !! 😡🤬🤬well Anyway I am glad at least he is okay and not a lost cat. I have let him go already back near the trees where he came from, and he was not hurt or injured at all so do not worry!! I am also okay, no bites or scratches!! (Just pee 😑 And if you are one of the people who told me nicely out of concern, thank you and have a nice day!! If you Are one of the people who was rude to me and tried to mock me for not knowing, you can have a bad day!!( maybeif he comes back I'll send him ur way 👹🤣Bye bye!

FOUND cat last night was stuck in between my fence screaming it's head off. i brought it inside because it looks too big and healthy for a stray and dogs here escape often and will eat cats that get out. it is very thick and has little stripes and spots on its legs and big white round spots on the back of its ears, only thing that looks wrong with him is he doesn't have a tail but it doesn't seem like anything new. He is very vocal ( and mean!!!!) I think he is a tabby and bengals mix maybe some Maine coon because he is just so big and chubby. i took most of these pics last night so the lighting makes him look brown but he is actually more gray. He was very hungry. please if u r his owner contact me ASAP i can not keep him here because as cute as he is, he is CRAZY and has gotten into everything in the house in 1 night and is EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE!! Even though I am almost sure this is someoneones pet unfortunately if no one contacts me soon enough I will have to take him to a shelter. By Sunday night most likely I will have to take him in. Almost lost my fingers this morning trying to pet him. Has been growling and hissing and calling all morning He is just a big grouch. Please text or email .

2. Yup.. He sure is. Sadly people find bobcat kittens not infrequently, take them home

and then there is a real disaster, given they've been taken from their mother. Unless somehow reunited quickly, they will have to live out their lives in captivity unless a rehab center can step in.

So, not just people from outside the US who are uninformed on these very wild, yet small cats...

I pity the local dog that grabs hold of that thing.

5. Kind of like having a tiger by the tail...except for the tail part!

I have always loved bobcats, and finally saw one hiking one day. That bob was big and beautiful, and very unconcerned by nearby humans. Would not want to get as close as this person did, but wow, what an adventure!

6. Get some Kibbles for Bobcats,... you'll be fine.

Oh Band-aids and Ace bandages might come in handy too.

Seriously,... glad you were not hurt.

7. I was working from home

On a conference call and saw 3 kittens walk by the window and head up some trees. I let out a big “holy shit” that had everyone wondering until i explained.

I had heard bumping on the roof and kind of knew what was up from some previous encounters. What worried me this time was trying to get a good picture by leaning out the front door while staying back enough to not get in mom’s way. The pictures came out pretty awful. That time i never did see mom. We did see the kittens a couple more times.

Always very cool and very scary to see bobcats. Ive seen them 4 or 5 times in 25 years

11. Small wildcats are often forgotten, since they are somewhat elusive

Most of them steer clear of people as much as they can.

There was a legit news story of someone who rescued a dog trapped in a frozen lake, which turned out to be a wild wolf.

12. If it scratched or bit you, you may want to get a rabies shot.

Glad the bobcat is okay and that you were kind enough to rescue him temporarily. They are beautiful animals.

14. That 'Found Cat' Craigslist Ad Featuring a Bobcat is Totally Fake

That 'Found Cat' Craigslist Ad Featuring a Bobcat is Totally Fake


sourcehttps://gizmodo.com/that-found-cat-craigslist-ad-featuring-a-bobcat-is-tota-1835004778

snip..."The images were actually taken from a handful of social media posts like this video on Instagram showing a rescued bobcat. The video was published on January 22, 2017. Two years earlier than the Craigslist post which first appeared just 20 days ago."



BTW, I fell for it too, until a friend showed me this.

Apparently there is a tamed bobcat on instagram, some of the pics are from there.

Still funny as heck.

17. A wild bobcat would have chewed the finder's face off

before he/she got him into the house.
