Spotless Cheetah Sighted in Kenya, First in Nearly 100 Years

A rare big cat was sighted by Guy Combes, a British Wildlife photographer after he had heard about several reported sightings of a lesser-spotted cheetah in the Kenyan plains. After looking high from an airplane and low from a Land Rover, Combes gave up trying and went back to Nairobi. After receiving a call that the unique cheetah had been seen, he decided to try again.

This time Combes came within fifty yards of the incredibly rare spotless adult cheetah with its spotted mother. Experts say the last recorded sighting of a cheetah with a plain tawny coat with freckles but no spots was in 1921, nearly one hundred years ago.

Rest In Peace Storm

Friends, it is with a heavy heart that I tell you, Storm, a bobcat being raised by Bobbi the domestic cat at Big Cat Rescue, has died in his sleep from a congenital heart condition.

The bobcats were orphaned when a hunter killed their mother thinking he would take the kittens home for his children.

Midnight, Rain and Storm were being raised to be released back into the wild.

Please light a candle in memory of Storm.  Rest in peace little one.
