I woke up this morning and found the bobcat sleeping in our courtyard! I couldn't at first figure out what Sammy was staring at... I thought at first he was absorbed in a lizard but as I got closer to the sliding glass doors I saw this lovely bobcat sprawled fast asleep among my flowers. I went and grabbed my camera and just started shooting pictures. He must have heard us talking but he did not exhibit any fear. He picked his head up and swiveled it and started to clean himself. Sammy started to mew and the bobcat's ears perked up. He got up very slowly to see what the noise was. He was not in hunting mode for sure. He walked over to the glass doors and was nosing the door where Sammy was doing the same thing on the other side. The whole thing was amazing. We have 12" square holes about 7 1/2' off the ground in our courtyard wall. That is how the bobcat eventually left and I assume that is how he got in as well. It is completely enclosed so he was protected from the coyotes. I will be interested to see if he is there tomorrow as well. I will post a video of some pictures at the end of this post. He looks so cuddly, no?
I am a retired Interior Designer who gravitated over to quilting. I have gotten into Art Quilts and fiber art as they fit my personality better. I currently live in Arizona where the sunsets are spectacular. I will miss my helper, Sammy.
I have fallen in love with dyeing my own fabrics. I just love being a mad scientist at times.
