    Took the camera outside to take pics of Charlie and Billy. They weren't cooperating, but the bobcat hybrid was; so....

    Mods, forgive me if I posted this in the wrong place. He's not a pest or a predator (at least not of our animals), but he's not exactly ready for the pets category either. [​IMG]

    He is gorgeous, isn't he? You can't really tell by looking at him, because he wouldn't stand up on command [​IMG] , but we estimate his weight to be around 20 lbs. No tail and of course, he has that 'jacked up' rear end. Oh, and I'm busted for feeding him, but the SO is taken with him now too; so it's all good. [​IMG]
    He's developed a habit of going to the same place just outside the yard and yowling when he wants to be fed. He won't come in the actual yard cuz the one time he did Killer Kitty, all 2 1/2 lbs. of her, chased him back out. [​IMG]

    Go Killer Kitty!!! I thought that Bobcats had different ears than his, maybe in the mixed genetics he lost those, he is really handsome. You feed him cat food?! Somehow I can't see him in the Meow Mix commercials, lol!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]


    I will say that you beat me hands down with the best wild pet, lol!!!
