“He is very vocal (and mean!!!) I think he is a tabby and bengals mix, maybe some Maine Coon because he is just so big and chubby. I took most of these pics last night so the lighting makes him look brown, but he is actually more grey. He was very hungry. Please, if you’re his owner contact me ASAP. I can not keep him here because as cute as he is, he is CRAZY and has gotten into everything in the house in one night and is EXTREMELY AGRESSIVE.”
After seeing her ad, many people messaged the woman to inform her that it was in fact a wild bobcat that she’d brought into her house and warned her to get rid of it quickly.’
Bobcats are the most common type of wildcat found in North America, named so for their short, bobbed tail.
The animals are medium in size and typically hunt rabbits, hares, rodents and even the occasional deer.
Shocked by her mistake, the woman updated her post to thank people for their advice.
She also revealed that she’d received several cruel messages from trolls and that the animal had urinated all over her house.
“Thank you to everyone who told me this is actually a wild bobcat!!! Wtf!! No wonder he was so grumpy!! I kidnapped him,” she added.
“I am not from America and have never heard of a bobcat, I thought all wildcats are much bigger than that!! I can not believe I brought it inside! And he p***** all over my damn house so now I have to deep clean everything!!
“Anyway, I am glad at least he is okay and not a lost cat. I have let him go already back near the trees where he came from. I am also okay, no bites or scratches.”
