A Monday Morning Surprise

I think I probably mentioned before that our house backs up to a 60 acre preserve ~ which I love (except in fire season)... well, this morning I was sitting in Richards home office chatting with him when he lets out a "HOLY CRAP!"
So out I go, with a camera, of course... so here's a current picture of our backyard DSC06950
See anything interesting??? How about a close up?

Sorry about the poor quality but it's a minimal quality camera and the picture was taken through the pool screen but yes, it's a bob cat. Richard actually got a video of it jumping out of the tree. It hung around quite a while ~ long enough for us to having a staring contest. It's probably still back there.
How cool is that?

BTW Jen ~ let's not let the puppers run around back there anymore, kay?

Sorry.

What a lovely "Kitteh!" My Aunt Ruth would be so jealous. She thinks it's her job to feed all the feral cats in the neighborhood.
She would be taking him/her a breakfast of milk and tuna! :)

Between you and Donna I don't know what I will do. She has coyotes and you have bobcats. Toto you better stay in Kansas.

I had to run over here and wish your daughter a happy birthday - you said yours was turning 30 too so I hope this is remotely close. LOL

Uh...it's OK that you didn't get a closer photo. That's PLENTY close enough to a bobcat. For pete's sake. :-)
