OMG, that doesn't bare thinking about. I find it hard to imagine that
simply putting your bins out could be so daunting!!
He was right, had that been a child, it wouldn't have stood a chance.
Having said that, how big is a Bob Cat? I imagine it to be bigger than
a domestic cat, yet not as large as a wildcat ( like a lion Cheetah or
a lynx?)
It must have been terrifying..!!

Very informative. Thank you very much indeed.
I had no idea what one looked like, & couldn't relate it's size to the
cat either.

I know that there are breeds of cats including Ragdolls & Birmans,
that have Lynx patterns. Do you know whether this is because a bob
cat has been bred into the domestic cat, or whether it is a breeding
program that has evolved into that pattern through several generations
@ all?

I have no idea I am not much into cat breeding or its outcomes but very
possible

There are also bobcats right in urban areas of some American south-west
cities. One of my sons lives in Arizona & regularly each year has bobcats
(mama & babies) coming up from the ravines behind his house & into his
backyard where they are happy to explore & play in the early mornings.

I've got some pictures of these bobcats on Webshots - the pictures are kind-
of washed out - but you can get a pretty good idea - this album is called
back yard friends showing some of the animals that sometimes visit this
backyard. I've also seen javelinas (wild pigs) in his front yard & in the
hills around his home when I've been there, but don't have any pictures.
Here's the link:
http://outdoors.webshots.com/album/558298161FIAodD

He's got a small dog that can go out into her own enclosure in the backyard
through a cat-flap door & I always ask if he isn't afraid at this time of
year to let her out by herself, but perhaps she's smart enough to stay inside
?

Good God!
You know what? In the UK, the domestic cat is actually still
considered to be on the wild life list.......
The same as a Fox, or Badger, or even a viper..( the only poisonous
snake that is native to the UK.) I am sure that there must be plenty
more out there, dumped or abandoned, or even escaped from people
keeping them who are simply too frightened to go to the authorities &
admit that this has happened to them.

By showing me these photographs, you have helped me build a better
picture of the difference between what we consider to be wildlife, as
opposed to what we would consider to be wildlife, if you see what I
mean?

I found the photos to be fascinating, truely!

The thought of being able to lean out of your window and watch a
family of Bob cats acting rather like a pride is something that we
really have no grasp on over here. I have "never" seen an opossum
before either. I had a picture in my minds eye of a ferret looking
sized creature, that might attack a cat that might be caught unaware.
I had no grasp on what the reality of a opossum's size, features or
appearance. In fact, Imagined that it might even be a creature that a
cat would have a good fighting chance against, should they come up
against one, actually!

I "should" have known better really, coming from hotter climates....

I now see how wrong my assumption was!

And the tarantula spider was just the icing on the cake really...?!!!
Bob cats are massive, their kittens make my cats look like cuddly
toys, the opossums are like gigantic badgers, & the thought of finding
one of those spiders in my shoe/ bed, or anywhere really, is enough to
make me break out in a cold sweat;o(
I am so glad that you saw fit to share this album with me. It has
certainly put a few things in better perspective for me now. Thank you
Marii.
You have no idea how much this has helped me appreciate why you all
see things so differently in the USA.

I really do hate this, for and against arguments, that pop up their
ugly heads so frequently between us all.

It paints a far clearer reason as to why you all feel so passionately
about keeping your cats indoors. It is because of the differences in
our wildlife couldn't be more different if we lived worlds apart.
Because we don't have the same fear factors over here, it is hard for
us to appreciate why it is such a big problem with you all, if you
understand what I am trying to describe?

Perhaps if we faced the same hazards that you do, we could understand
and appreciate why you feel this way. It has certainly made me rethink
why you all choose to keep your cats & kittens indoors.
And, if we faced the same ones, we would feel the same way that you
all do too.

So far, we have been so lucky not to have these problems to contend
with, which is why the vast majority of us don't understand your
fear's, & choose to allow our cats to roam where they please.
Personally, I have had a few bad experiences which is why I choose
only to allow my own cats out whilst I am with them. Nonetheless, it
is not Rabid dogs that we have to contend with. It is a far worse
predator...Called Human Beings. The worst & most unpredictable
predator of all. disgusting, but true all the same...

No Rabies, no poisonous snakes, no Bob Cats, wolves, Foxes & other
predators either. Only humans which is really sad.
However, having said that, how lucky we are....
S;o)

I didn't intend this to drag out the indoor-outdoor discussion(?) at all,
just to show you some other interesting pictures of bobcats, although I can
see it isn't such a big leap into that other subject. My son isn't at all
bothered by the wildlife he sees around him, but for me, it's so different.
I'm Canadian & live in Toronto - wildlife here? rabbits, racoons, skunks,
various small garden snakes, owls, bats, some hawks & falcons, too many black,
gray & small red squirrels, foxes, deer. Nothing terribly unusual. The
biggest threat to cats here is traffic, dogs running loose & the 2-legged
predators as you've mentioned.
