He was born at Big Cat Rescue and raised by Carole's daughter. Windstar's parents are breeders Windsong, bought as a pet at an auction, and Alexander, described as an F1 hybrid who was also born at BCR, taken from his mother at 9 days old and bottle raised in Carole's house. Windstar's early bio also mentions his uncle, Des-Purr-ado. Des-Purr-ado was also born at BCR of breeders Czar and Nakita, taken from his mother, and raised in Carole's house. Cats bought, bred, or born at BCR should not be portrayed to donors and tours as rescues. These 7 cats were not rescued from abuse or abandonment, they were pets and breeders.
The Evolving Stories
Wildlife on Easy Street 2001- Big Cat Rescue (present)
"Windstar was an unexpected surprise to Windsong and Alexander. Because Alex was an F1 Hybrid we assumed he was infertile after four years of watching him breed with no success. We had neutered all of our male Bobcats except for the hybrids as we were so sure they could not reproduce. Windstar was proof to the contrary and his birth resulted in his father and uncle, Des-Purr-ado being immediately neutered. Windstar is affectionately called "Bob" and has a wonderful purrsonality. He was raised by Jamie and Daniel who were both avid Leopard fans, but who both now say the Bobcat is their favourite specie."
