Members Evening, and More Kittens?
Thank you to all our members who came to our annual Members Evening last night. It was a huge success with over 100 people turning out to make the evening a great experience for all involved. We have had a lot of nice feedback already, and hope you all enjoyed your extra time here at the BWC.
When I had finished the talk about our Wildcats, and the conservation work we do with them, I was informed by the keepers that Kendra was looking very "big"... Is it possible she could be pregnant again?
Although Scottish Wildcats would only ever have one litter a year, if the kittens are lost at a young age it has been known for the female to come into estrous again quickly for a possible second mating. Maybe this has happened here, and we will have little "Lex" kittens later in the Summer.
Obviously we are all very excited about this possibility, especially after the tragic loss of her last litter followed by the father recently due to kidney failure.
I will keep you informed on the progress...
Thank again to all our members for your continued support of the British Wildlife Centre. Hope to see you all here again soon.
