Rare kitty makes her de­but for cam­eras

Daily Express - - Waging War On Loneliness -

A RARE Scot­tish wild­cat kit­ten has been pho­tographed for the first time.

The fe­male, born at Ch­ester Zoo in Au­gust, could of­fer a “life­line for the species”, zoo bosses said. Wild­cats, hunted to the brink of ex­tinc­tion, are Bri­tain’s rarest mam­mals. As few as 100 are es­ti­mated to be left. The zoo said: “Wild­cats will usu­ally have only one litter a year, so ev­ery birth is re­ally sig­nif­i­cant.”
