SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS — A San Antonio family with good intention learned a painful lesson after they brought two cute kittens into their home — the kittens are actually two young bobcats.

According to KENS-TV, the family's relative found the kittens close to their home near Salado Creek in northeastern San Antonio.

Due to their jungle cat appearance, the family just assumed the kittens are Bengal cats and took them in.

The aww moment stopped when the kittens started biting people and ripping the milk bottles apart. After Googling the kittens' size, robust nature, and their bobbed tails, the family realized the kittens might not be regular house cats.

The family called for help and the bobcat kittens were taken to the care of Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation.

San Antonio's Animal Care Services told KENS-TV that it's possible the felines came from the Salado Creek area, where parts are still underdeveloped and wildlife roam free.

According to animal experts, bobcat kittens have black tips on their distinct, triangle-shaped ears, with white patches just underneath the back, and short, black-tipped tails.
