Litter of wildcats: In this photo provided by the Oregon Zoo, a week-old caracal kitten born June 8 receives its first veterinary check-up at the zoo in Portland. Senior Africa zookeeper Asaba Mukobi says its mother, Peggy, is protective and “sets boundaries for the kittens now that they’re moving around.” While mom and the kittens are behind the scenes, the kittens’ father, Cricket, remains on exhibit.
