Just Makes Me Want to Hold Them


Knowing how certain emails fly around cyberspace, you all may have already seen these photos and read this story and will rush to tell me it's a fairy tale. But when I saw these two photos in an email that a friend passed on, I wanted to post them no matter what their origin. The photos don't appear to be 'photo-shopped' or created, and I was so touched by them and the story that accompanied them, I was in tears.

Earlier this summer these two reportedly were rescued somewhere in the mountains above Santa Barbara, as the Jesusita Fire wildfires raged through. Reportedly the fawn was 3 days old and the bobcat about 3 weeks. It said that when the kitten was found it was dehydrated and near death. During the mayhem of the fire, rescuers were forced to put animals anywhere they could. They had run out of crates large enough for the fawn. When brought in the kitten ran to the fawn, and it was instant bonding as they snuggled together under a desk in the Santa Barbara County Dispatch Office.

If the story is false, I don't really care, I could just sit and look at these babies for hours. If it is true, I don't have the ending but I sure hope they survived and will be released somewhere safe.

Beautiful creatures. I don't disbelieve the photos for a second.

Sweet photos. I think that cats must have the most open hearts; they seem to bond with most anything. And yet they are so aloof at the same time. What a dichotomy. :) Thanks for sharing.

What gorgeous photos! Like you, I hope that if this story is true, both are doing well, are healthy and will be released somewhere where they can both thrive. They don't look photoshopped at all, which makes me believe they are real. How adorable!

I love stories and pictures like this (but I will add I hate it when people feel the need to make up stuff, cause we're all taken in and think it's wonderful, and it's all pretend!).
