PHOENIX - It looked like a kitten, it sounded like a kitten, but as a Good Samaritan found out, the "kitty" he found was actually a bobcat.
Bretta Nelson with the Arizona Humane Society said the man found the little one near Cave Creek Road and Dynamite in north Phoenix.
The man said when the cat opened its mouth to meow, he knew it was no ordinary kitten!
He looked for the kitten's mother and siblings, but couldn't find them.
The Good Samaritan bottle fed the bobcat for three days before bringing it to the Humane Society who immediately contacted the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center.
Nelson said they have not yet determined the sex of the cat, but it is being well taken care of and is in good condition.
Humane Society officials said it is best to leave a wild animal where you found it because its mother might be out gathering food.
