Adorable Orphaned Puma Kittens Finally Find A Home

It is always exciting to hear when any animal finds their forever home, so finding out that the Minnesota Zoo is now the proud caretaker of two orphaned puma kittens is undeniably heartwarming!

...

The two were found outside of Port Angeles, Washington, according to zoo officials. A local resident discovered the puma kittens and alerted the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in late October.

The state determined their mother was not returning to care for them based on the condition the brother-and-sister pair were in, so the kittens made the journey to Minnesota to be a part of the Medtronic Minnesota Trail exhibit.

Both kittens were very small when they arrived— the male weighing 13 lbs and the female only 11 lbs— but they have grown steadily since. It is amazing what a consistent healthy diet and some TLC can do!

Currently the kittens are participating in a mandatory quarantine where the zoo’s veterinary team is attentive to their every need, but they should make their public debut sometime later this year.

While the kittens are not yet on exhibit at this time, Tropics and Minnesota Traill Curator Tom Ness, stated that they are “happy to provide these kittens with an excellent home to thrive here at the Minnesota Zoo.”

"Once the kittens are healthy and strong enough, they will be introduced to guests and welcomed into their new habitat," Ness told Cuteness.
