Welcome! This is the main page where we will be posting updates on Chips, the young bobcat kitten who was injured in the Chips fire near Lake Almanor, CA.
Chips is on the road to recovery at LTWC after the Mad River Hand Crew spotted her during patrol and mop-up operations on the north end of the fire. The little kitten–barely old enough to open its eyes–was alone and confused, and surely would have perished if she had not been rescued by Superintendent Tad Hair and his crew.
Chips is currently making occasional appearances during the warmer, daylight hours on Webcam 8.
