Tiny bobcat kitten named Lee rescued in last weekend's post-tropical storm [View all]

Several soaking wet and windblown animals were taken to the Atlantic Wildlife Institute in southeastern New Brunswick when tropical storm Lee blew through the region.

Among those rescued were a few squirrels, a chipmunk and a hummingbird, according to Pam Novak, the director of wildlife at the rehabilitation centre near Sackvlle.

But there was one clear standout — a tiny bobcat kitten — who Novak estimates is only about one month old.

A ranger from Dieppe's Department of Natural Resources office contacted her to say a nearby resident was outside in the Jolicure area during the storm feeding stray cats when they noticed an unusual kitten trying to climb up their leg.
