This adorable little desert lynx was rescued and nursed back to life by Born Free after he was found in a Gumuz (a tribal group) home.
Born Free Ethiopia Country Representative, Stephen Brend, says: "He was rescued by a missionary family, who wrote: "It is likely his mother was killed by hunters during the time of the fire several days previously".
"The missionaries called him Tippy since he was hardly able to walk at first and kept tipping over, and he was fed milk for the first couple of days and then milk and porridge."
Born Free Ethiopia received the baby big-cat on Friday February 21 after he made the 13-hour journey to Addis Ababa with another family.
Unfortunately, he was already in a bad way and by Sunday night, was being nursed around the clock by consultant veterinarian Rea Tschopp.
Miraculously he recovered and is now being hand reared in the Born Free Foundation compound in Addis until he is well enough to go to Ensessakotteh Wildlife Rescue in Addis Abbaba.
