    The bobcat is doing just fine, but he's still possum-less! [​IMG]
    He has his very own bowl now, not far from Kitty's. Kitty does her very best to eat both bowls up, to keep him from getting any, but she can't.
    He's gotten used to us, doesn't even run out of the yard when I let Charlie out, so I guess I need to add him to my list of pets.
    Nice to see ya around girl. You've been in my good thoughts. [​IMG]

    Quote:Have you not seen the pics of him hooligan? He's absolutely gorgeous. He's really a bobcat hybrid. My SO tells me he's not the first one of his kind in the 40+ years he's been living on this farm. We have (at least) one sure 'nuff bobcat too, but he stays hidden.
    Anyhow, he showed up a few months ago and his visits progressed to being nightly and now he comes to the back door to be fed. We've judged him to be about 20 lbs., my male siamese DaNang was 18 lbs., and this guy is just a tad bigger. He may be 1 or 2 generations removed from full bobcat, he has ears that are more cat-like and they have very little "tuffing". I'll jump over and get you a pic of him real quick, different from the one that was posted elsewhere.

    Here's the promised pic. It's not the best pic in the world, but it demonstrates how well he blends in. I must admit I was a tad bit freaked the first time I heard him "yowl", before I knew what it was. He doesn't sound anything like a domestic cat. Now I'm used to it, but I still don't like it at 4 a.m. under my bedroom window.
