Week 33: Youth

August 14, 2012

It’s been about 105 degrees here every day for the past week, so we opened the front door this morning, just before the sun came up, to try to let in some fresh air. I commented to Charlie that some critter had been digging in the tanbark outside the front door and he went out to sweep it up. He came inside and about 3 minutes later yelled for me to get my camera. These juvenile bobcats have been wandering around the neighborhood for about three months, but we haven’t seen them – until this morning. There were actually 4 little ones and the mama, but this was all I could get before they wandered off. Now we know what was playing in the tanbark! Ah, the benefits of living in the boonies!

    I’d suspect squirrels or mice in the tanbark, but don’t worry your resident rodent control is obviously on duty. Gorgeous snat in your front yard!
