A bobcat in need of medical attention is getting some special care, thanks to the Houston SPCA.

On Wednesday rescued an adult male bobcat from the Friendswood area and took him to the Wildlife Center of Texas, a subsidiary of the Houston SPCA, in northwest Houston.

An exam found the animal was emaciated, covered in fleas, suffering from a bacterial infection and sarcoptic mange.

Now, the bobcat will receive short and long-term rehabilitative care until he's ready to return to his native habitat.
