I was standing outside, waiting for a moment to help carry down a new water heater into the basement, and noticed a curious form walking by along the top our sloping driveway, about forty feet from me.

Took me a second, but the size and the tail gave it away. Looked like a housecat. It wasn’t a housecat. Too big for that. The tail was too stubby.

Bobcat. At 12:30 in the afternoon. Out for a nice Autumn walk.

It stood and stared at me for a good many seconds, not real concerned about me. Then meandered up the hill back on his way.

It’s been a while since I saw a bobcat around here, a few years in fact. Restores my faith in this being a forest.

I wish that bobcat well.

    Last bobcat I saw was at the Brit Spaugh Zoo several years ago.

    We have lots of wildlife here since we live practically on top of a wildlife refuge. The coyotes sing on our doorstep and the raccoons raid our cupboards…almost. They like to stare at me on my morning walks.
