2. We discovered a bobcat lives in our yard

Our house is in the Lower Catskills on the Upper Delaware River surrounded by forest. There is an abundance of wildlife including bear, dear, eagles, hawks, several varieties of ducks and lots more.

I recently discovered large cat prints and a neighbor told me they were from a bobcat that weighed about 30-35 lbs. Thankfully, they tend to be reclusive and they usually do their hunting during the night and early morning.

I guess it's a feature of living in the woods.

5. Be careful about being out in

the yard on warm summer nights.

3. Maybe it's the camera angle but that looks like a very long tail

The ears don't have the point of a bobcat either.

4. Perhaps an ocelot?

I don't really know very well what those look like, but I like the name.

And I know it's a cat, and younger ones would be around that size, and similarly colored.

8. I think it's the angle

I stopped it at one point and you could barely make out the "points" or tufts on the ears and the tail seemed shorter. It also has the white spots on the backs of his/her ears.

And...big, squishy feet that need to be poked.

7. Years ago one of our idiot dogs chased after a bobcat and nearly got scalped.

The bobcat got away unharmed.

Fortunately my wife is very good at patching up idiot humans who do similarly stupid things and carries everything she needs to make such repairs in our first aid kits.

Bobcats are powerful little beasts. Whenever I encounter them I give them the same space I'd give a bear.

My brother once encountered a bobcat who was carrying her kittens over a fence, one at a time. He stayed well away.
