Scottish Field - - COUNTRY NEWS -

Two or­phaned Scot­tish wildcat kittens have been res­cued by Wildcat Haven and moved to a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre in the West High­lands. Often wildcat sight­ings turn out to be do­mes­tic tab­bies or part-wildcat hy­brids, but the res­cued kittens are seem­ingly or­phaned, re­cently-born wild­cats. With only 35 pure Scot­tish wild­cats re­main­ing in the world, the kittens rep­re­sent 6% of all Scot­tish wild­cats in ex­is­tence and will help save the species in the wild. The kittens will be re­leased back into the wild at the first op­por­tu­nity. If you see a Scot­tish wildcat kit­ten, take a photo and send it to ad­[email protected]­cathaven.co.uk.
