Siberian Lynx Rescued by Big Cat Rescue

Natasha and Willow were refugees from two fur farms but were raised together as kittens and are inseparable today. Though solitary in the wild, captive lynx seem to prefer having a buddy.

Natasha came with a group that was rescued from a fur farm in the U.S. Willow came from a fur farm in Canada along with several other sick and dying kits that had been crammed so tightly into wire crates that they looked like little squares of fur.

Cats like them often end up as the fur trim on coats and gloves, or they are doomed to game farms where a person can pay to shoot them with a camera or a gun if the price is right.
