It’s a girl! Kitten born to rescued and released Florida panther

Once a kitten is discovered, it takes FWC panther biologists like Mark Lotz and a veterinarian about 20 minutes to process a kitten while mom is away hunting. The workup includes determining the kitten’s sex, weight and measurements; de-worming; administering feline vaccinations; inserting a microchip transponder; performing a biopsy and taking hair and other samples.

"Pets were important to our family, both dogs and cats," said Anne Frost Waring, sister of Betty Grey Waring.” "But cats were and still are our 'soul mates.' While growing up, our cat Tippy, who was white with black spots, had numerous litters of kittens. We found homes for every one of them. We also played 'dress up' and put those poor kittens in our pocketbooks, hanging out of the end for dear life. One of our favorite kittens was a striped tabby, whom we named Tommy. We just adored him. When he was given to a cousin who lived down the road, a big discovery was made. Tommy was a girl and had to undergo a name change." Anne Frost Waring is a communications manager for the Virginia Commonwealth's Department of Human Resource Management.
