Students Curious About Cats

Two very unusual looking cats were the center of attention at Quincy Elementary School today.  Two animal caretakers from the Cedar Cove Feline Sanctuary and Education Center at Louisburg, Kansas, brought an African serval and a baby bobcat for the students to see.  Fifth grade students had visited the sanctuary earlier in the school year and had read a book about big cats.  The caretakers explained to the students about the cat’s habitat and talked about the differences of placing the animals in a sanctuary as opposed to a zoo.
