You can often see stories about how someone found abandoned kittens or dogs. This happened to one farmer from Transbaikalia: one day, next to his barn, he found very small and still blind kittens. They were all, as if by choice, of the same color, and fluffy, but so small that the farmer decided that these were the most common cats, whose mother had been digging near the man’s house, and then left her for some reason. So the man took the cubs home.
Not knowing how to help cats (after all, sitting and feeding babies from a pipette, as well as providing them with regular care – this takes a lot of time), the farmer turned to the Daursky reserve. There, experts suggested that the farmer find an ordinary domestic cat who has recently had kittens, or perhaps even now is raising her offspring – and try to “convince” the mother to accept the new breadwinner.
However, when the reservists saw the kittens the man had found, they gasped. It turns out that the found kittens are Manul’s cubs. This is a very rare type of somewhat thoughtful cat. They are not tamed, and if a little man easily gets along with a person at a young age, then as soon as he grows up, instincts take their toll and keeping such animals at home becomes unbearable.
However, the cost of these rare animals on the black market reaches hundreds of thousands of rubles: there are always enough people who want to have exotics in the house, and it is almost impossible to hunt Manul in nature, not to mention finding kittens. In theory, it would be possible to sell children for decent money. However, this would hardly have gone in favor of little Manoles.
This type of animal feels good only in the wild. Therefore, the farmer decided to take the expensive find to the reserve to help the kittens grow up and then release them into the wild. Lactating cats were found in the reserve for little manuls, and fortunately, they had adopted unusual cubs. The older she gets, the more active she is.
When they were old enough to live on their own, reserve workers released them into the wild, placing radio collars on the animals. However, with the onset of winter, the kittens faced challenges for which they were not prepared. At some point, they all shed their collars, and when people found them again, the cats were very emaciated. Manuls were again taken indoors, allowing them to spend their first winter, gradually adapting to wild conditions, and towards spring, when the wild cats had already grown up and learned to hunt better, they were released again.
Subsequently, man adapted to wild life much better and now feels content living in his natural environment. Dear friends! If you liked the video, please like and subscribe to the channel for more!
