An agency client sent this picture of a visitor to his front yard:








y'all live in some strange and exciting places!

My grandma lived in the mountains of southern California, and she had a bobcat that came to her house, and inside, every evening. She left food for it in the kitchen. It would sit on the couch for a while, then leave. For three or four months. She was sad when it didn't come back.

These kinds of visitors are one of the reasons I'm sometimes sad I live in the middle of urban sprawl. My apartment complex has some nice landscaping so we have a ton of bunnies hopping around right now, but no gorgeous kitties like this.

Uh oh. Something else to be scared of.

That cat is AWESOME! Ocelot, perhaps? No, they have rounded ears... If you can, please get your client to reveal what kind of feline this is, and whereabouts in the world it can be found.

Thanks for sharing the cuteness, and have a lovely day! :-)

Do you think I could borrow it to get the rats out of our garage apartment? They're almost as big as this cat here and laugh at our attempts to trap them.

Ah, but Ms. Laughtin, wildlife has its down-side, too. Last year, in a small town near here, coyotes attacked and killed a number of pets - one while on a leash held by its owner. Once, a child was threatened while waiting for a school bus. And just ask all the rural folks who lose their gardens to deer every year.

Not saying the wild animals aren't lovely and precious, but having them visit can cause problems, too. City living isn't so bad at times.

That's a bobcat. We have a similar wildcat here called a lynx. They have tufted ears and big snowshoe feet.

We also have a coyote snatching little dogs in the Beaches area of Toronto, within city limits.

How cute.
We have an occasional bobcat visiting our pastures, but the ones up here don't have spots. Lots of coyotes, though, and we're only semi-rural.
They don't bother the dogs or horses, but the house kitties have to stay confined or they get eaten. Cats are very happy we installed a 'dogrun' attached to the back door so they spend nice days staring down birds and squirrels.

Very pretty, young looking bobcat. I thought Tucson, too, but it's obviously desert southwest wherever it is. Doesn't have to be all that rural (Tucson is a fairly big city) for wildlife to show up. Small dogs and house cats make yummy lunches.

My neighbor owns a bobcat. Such a pretty cat. :)

My dog chased a coyote the other morning - and I live in northeast Ohio, which is strange, maybe, but never exciting.

Sigh. So wish I was out in the country again.
