Woman Discovers Her Adopted Stray Kitten Is A Puma

When Florencia Lobo, an Argentinian woman, took her 2-months-old kitty to the vet for a regular checkup, nothing could have prepared her for the remarkable news she was about to discover.

The woman first found the ‘stray kitten’, when traveling with her brother in the northwest-Argentinian province of Tucumán. They spotted the kitten and his sister, lying next to their dead mother. “We thought that it was an abandoned cat who had given birth”, she later told Reuters.

They brought the two ‘kittens’ home with them. Sadly, the weaker female didn’t survive, but the male, who was later named Tito, grew stronger and recovered from losing his mother, thanks to Florencia’s tender care.

Although everything seemed to be fine with her kitty, Florencia decided to take Tito to the vet “just to make sure everything’s fine”. As soon as the vet glanced at the feline, she instantly told Florencia that Tito was not a “normal cat”, and gave her the phone number of a nearby nature reserve. Florencia sent pictures of the feline to one of the reserve’s rangers, who confirmed that Tito is in fact, a Jaguarundis.

Jaguarundis is a type of Puma native to north and south America. It’s actually quite easy to mix them up with regular cats because they’re only slightly larger weighing 8-16 lbs when they’re fully grown.

According to Reuters, Tito is now under the care of the nature reserve and is slowly adapting to life in his natural habitat.
