Rescue Panther Kitten Guaranteed to Melt Your Heart. {Video}

Take a break from your day to watch this panther kitten video.

I’m usually immersed in environmental news, which can be somewhat of a downer. It’s important to be informed about what’s going on in the world, but—come on!—we all need a break now and then! Something to make us smile.

This video of a panther kitten, which was found cold and unresponsive at the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, made my day.

The one pound male kitten was discovered by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida biologists when they were conducting research.

“We want to give any panther kitten the best opportunity to survive in the wild,” said FWC veterinarian Dr. Mark Cunningham in a news release. “But clearly this kitten was in poor condition and almost certainly would have died without intervention.”

Panthers are a disappearing breed that conservationists are desperately trying to protect.

If you live in Florida, you can support conservation efforts like the rescue of this kitten by purchasing a “Protect the Panther” license plate at BuyaPlate.com.
