He's such a beautiful kitten. There's a pain in my heart to see him suffer like this, but we know he will be safe in the future.

Very sadly noted, when there are so few of these precious cats left in the wild as it is. So sad that this cub will not be able to be released back into the wild, where he was meant to be. Even sadder that it's sibling was killed. All my hopes, prayers & love for the Florida Panther!! Thanks for posting Lindsey.

Thank you Lindsey. What a sweet baby,I cannot believe that he was just left on the side of the road,like a bit of rubbish, to die!!! What is wrong with the human race? I wish it were in my power to stop the suffering of God's creatures.

If he is to be sent to a zoo or another place like that then they should kill him now! Animals are better off dead then to live like that! Even if he would not make it long in the wild it he would die free like he is supposed to!

Noted! And I'm praying that the little guy will be just fine and recuperate fully.
