They can actually be raised domestically and turned into really good pets   
The issue is getting their diet just right and the fact that you can't get them fixed when they get older and start getting aggressive do to mating. It's also illegal in most places unless you take a short course to get a certain class of animal handler permit. Not too terrible of a class but a little expensive. Unless you have that, or get a paper that says someone with that permit has charged you with the animals care you really can't take them to any medical centers.    
If you are going to keep it good luck, and if not try not to handle it too much or it won't be able to go back into the wild. Also be sure to give it goats milk at a little above room temperature for now, not cow milk which will make it sick. Goats milk is found in pet sections or in isles that deal with nursing. Also after feeding be sure to get a wet cloth of papertowel, use warm water, and gently wipe the kittens bottom which will simulate the mothers licking of their bottom. This helps them go to the bathroom and makes them feel safer. Other than that have fun! they are awesome little animals and can turn into great pets if you decide to keep it

I won't lie, I really like bobcats, but I live near the woods where some bobcats live and they're a bunch of dicks. I know they're just playing, but they are dicks, I saw one swat a chipmunk around for a while until it finally killed it.

Is that an elephant shrew?

I hope that's specialty milk you're giving him, because if you treat him like a regular housecat with regular cat food, bad things will happen. Also, most cats are actually lactose intolerant when they grow up, and can only stomach it as small babies. Not that I have a problem with you raisng him or anything, i'm just worried that you're not doing it correctly.

we had a kitty who was half bobcat and we had him for about a year before he ran away and he didn't have any problems with normal cat food and stuff. we gave him water to drink though.
so i guess he inherited the cat side food requirements?
User avatar #74 to #61 - zafara (01/20/2013) [-]
Possibly.

We gave him to a vet, I don't have the knowledge to keep a cat like that.. I wouldn't wanna hurt it.
User avatar #73 to #16 - zafara (01/20/2013) [-]
Yeah, that's a good idea. Not that I don't think that you're not capable and wouldn't love it. I'm sure you would do what was best for it, but exotic animals are expensive.

Thanks for all the comments guys. I notice a lot of people are talking about the bowl of liquid there. It was actually just water...I can see how some people would mistake it for milk. It was a hot day and the poor guy looked really dehydrated and scared. i didn't want to feed it because I didn't want to hurt it. I just called the vet and they are figuring out a plan to reintegrate him into the wild. =)

You are a hero then, exceptif he reverts to his natural instincts & rips the faces off 15 people in your city.

Good luck with that though xD

Because the entire FJ community is obsessed with "cute" animals, and so they relentlessly thumb anything with a picture of a damn cat. They also don't seem to realize that this is a wild animal.

Someone needs to explain what cute is to these people, why it makes them love it, and how it can be overcome.
#71 to #70 - John Cena (01/20/2013) [-]
I shall show them the way.

Now that I take a second look, you're absolutely right. It is like the face is asking,"Are you my mummy?"
