First time I've ever seen him out in the daytime. Does anyone know enough about such creatures as to hazard a guess why he would start coming around in the daytime? The sudden very cold weather maybe? I tried to get a pic of him, but by the time I got into the house and dug out the digital camera he was gone. I'm keeping the camera handier in case he comes back. I want to understand him as much as I can, so that later on when we start the actual building of our coop/run I can do the best I can to prevent having problems with him. The SO says there's been hybrids here before and his mama & grandma never had any problems with them and their chickens. In case you haven't already guessed, we're fairly certain he's a domestic/bobcat hybrid. I can't help but look at him with wonder. He is a magnificent looking creature. P.S. I just KNEW my barn cat wasn't going thru a large bag of cat food a week all by herself.
