Wild Cats and Wine at Peterson Winery
The Wild Cat Education and Conservation Fund gave us a glimpse of two cats living in northern California.
They take these and other cats to schools to teach kids about our native animals.
At Peterson Winery, we met a bobcat and a mountain lion. Both are wild animals, not trained pets. Both were amazing.
The credentialed teachers combine fun and learning for school kids. For us...it was the same. Fun and educational. Each cat was presented on a leash and the teachers explained natural habitat, behaviors, and the individual animal's characteristics.
They have several wild cats including cheetah, bobcats, ocelots, servals, Canada lynx, Siberian lynx, Geoffryoy's cat, and mountain lions.
