Whiston arrived at Animal Ark on January 17, 2006 after being neutered and receiving a health check from a local veterinarian. Following his surgery, he could safely be housed with Piper, a female from the same location without the concern that producing offspring might be the result. Whiston originally came from a zoo that offered him for sale to a private individual. Like all wild animals, bobcats do not make good pets. A failed breeding program along with the challenges of specialized care and housing influenced his owner to find new homes for his bobcats. At that time the Ark was contacted.
