Second birth at our black-footed cat, parents Lilly & Spotty

On the 26th of March 2018, our black-footed cat female Lilly gave birth to another kitten. The second birth of this season, which is very normal for black footed cats. In September 2017 she gave birth to Lady & Lucky, who are still doing well, and this new kitten seems to be a girl as well, though isn’t officially sexed yet. So far so good, and we are very happy, as the species is very rare and endangered, and very vulnerable to stress-related illnesses like kidney failure, why most of them die on young age. One of the essential conservation projects of Wild Cats World is focused on the Black-footed Cats.

Phoenix Four Leopard Re-wilding

The four young leopards born and raised (by their mothers/parents) at Wild Cats World have been successfully relocated to a huge re-wilding (phase I) camp in Mpumalanga Province, where lots of rehabilitation and releasing of leopards already had been done. Happy to say Olive, Solo, Beau & Bahati are settling in nicely, but we didn’t expect anything else of a highly adaptable species like the leopard. For the first re-wilding they will stay here, and the next step will be relocation to a huge boma in the National Park en Private Game Reserves (non-hunting) that showed interest in them already.
