When a bobcat kitten refused to leave the backyard of a home in Arizona, it soon became clear that “something was wrong,” wildlife rescuers said.

Even barking dogs couldn’t get the baby trotter to move after he was found, no rocks were thrown his way, according to an Oct. 29 Facebook post from Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center. But the cat did not persist – he was in pain.

A rescuer went to a home in Phoenix, caught the lynx and brought her to the conservation center’s clinic.

“Upon examination, the vets noticed that her front paw was severely swollen,” the report said.

Rescuers believe the kitten was either bitten by a snake or a scorpion and the wound got infected, the report said.

But the cat is being treated and is expected to recover.

“Nothing can be cured by a little rest, medicine and love,” says the nature conservation center.

Bobcats are distributed throughout Arizonaaccording to the state Department of Game and Fish, and although they are usually solitary animals, kittens stay with their mothers for seven months or up to a year.

It is unclear what happened to the injured kitten’s mother or siblings, or whether it will be released back into the wild.

McClatchy News has reached out to the conservation center for more information.
