Isn’t it precious?
Mom looked up the driveway the other day to see an animal rolling around in the dust. It was clearly a cat, and just as clearly, not a house cat. Which left only one possibility: bobcat.
Mom began to walk towards it, as it lolled around on the ground being a large predatory cat. It stopped to watch her, with a very “Is she coming over here? Like, really?” expression. She got quite close to it before it stood up and trotted off.
My initial reaction was to worry about the babies, but at 1-2 feet tall, I doubt the bobcat is much of a threat to them anymore. In fact, it probably is being a good barn cat, eating mice, rabbits and pocket gophers. We should probably just go ahead and name it. I was thinking Spot, but besides being a little too obvious…it doesn’t have spotted markings. They are more streaky.
