Fact of the Day: Bobcat Lynx

The bobcat is native to most of North America. They are believed to have evolved from the Eurasian lynxes which had traveled across the Bering Land Bridge which had existed in modern-day Russia and Alaska.

Not what you would have inside your home as your "dear little
pet puddy cat".
I reckon in the wild I'd be giving them a wide berth.
Not a favourite "puddy cat" for the farming fraternity either.

Thank God we don't have them in Australia, the "feral wild
ex-domestic cats" do enough damage. I believe the government here has endorsed an eradication process to proceed.
Solution to this is when given a kitten, just remember they eat, have to be de-sexed, registered and of course there are vet fees.
Don't dump the poor little kittens in the bush. That is despicable behaviour. People caught doing that here face a VERY hefty fine.

He's gorgeous, but I wouldn't want to run into one!

Nice kitty! Here in the jungle of Mexico where I live, jaguars roam at night. Several have been sited at my neighbor's houses. They are not aggressive than goodness. Occasionally, a puma is sighted, and thankfully not often because they are aggressive.

A very handsome creature indeed--though I don't think our chickens would like to run into one.

I'm not a cat person so I really don't care for any of them.
