Lions and tigers and kitty cats…oh my! I’m not embarrassed to call myself a wild and crazy cat lady. At the Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center, I’m crazy enough to dress up like a bobcat. I’ve transformed myself to become a feline “mommy”—suiting up in a full-body costume, deodorized with bobcat urine and placing a big, furry bobcat mask on my head. This technique was developed to make us as unlike a human as humanly possible and helps ensure that the bobcat kittens don’t become habituated to their human caretakers but will remain wild and wary of people when they’re released back to their native habitats.
