On September 20, a Tennessee woman named Jill Masengale Hicks pulled over when she saw an abandoned kitten on the side of the road. She got it situated in her garage with a litter box, cat food, and some water.

She also posted a photo of the kitten on Facebook asking if any of her friends were able to adopt it.

Jill’s initial post realizing it was a bobcat went completely viral, with over 27,000 shares and countless articles written.

To us, the cat looks clearly wild, but in one post she did say it only weight 10 ounces at the time she found it.

I am going to create Arwen her own FB page, but here are a couple of pictures from this morning. Her handler said she…
