KIRTLAND, Ohio — A pair of adorable bobcat kittens have made a temporary home at a Lake Metroparks wildlife center.

The male and female bobcat siblings were transferred to the Kevin P. Clinton Wildlife Center from another facility after someone found them lying next to the road with no mother in sight, according to Penitentiary Glen Reserve in Kirtland.

The kittens will receive the nourishment they need at the wildlife center before being released back into the wild.

Lake Metroparks said they expect the two kittens to become fierce little predators and have a release date scheduled for the spring.

To avoid human imprinting, the kittens will not be on public display while they grow, Lake Metroparks said.

Although the public can’t go and visit the kittens, once the wildlife center is able to transition them into a specialized enclosure that emulates their natural habitat, the pair will be able to be viewed online through the center’s bobcat cam.
