Well, I guess the snow is drawing the bobcats to lower elevations because this is what I saw at 9:00 a.m. this morning from my studio window. I'm glad it wasn't a mountain lion, but I did go to check that both our little dogs were in the house!
A couple years ago two bobcats were having a territorial fight in the trees above the backyard. I heard Dean yelling. It was 1:00 p.m. and little neighbor children were outside playing. He thought they were going to jump out of the trees right inside of the fence of our little back yard, but they didn't, luckily, and ran off to new areas.
