A Rooikat in my Kitchen!

Imagine coming home, and finding a caracul (rooikat) in your kitchen. This is precisely what happened recently to a Durbanville home-owner.

“Not every day a caracal (aka rooikat) is found on someone’s kitchen cupboards but that is exactly what our Wildlife Inspector Rico Pentz found last week in Durbanville,” said the SPCA’s Tara McGovern.

“After a bit of a tricky capture this stunning creature was safely released back into the nearby nature reserve.”
