The backyard of my Mom's house is on a wash. After dinner this evening we were in her living room with it's big sliding glass doors. She has some low water dishes out for the animals. As we were sitting there she spotted a bobcat on the block wall. I spotted one drinking out of one of her dishes. Apparently a male female situation, with the lady acting coy and hissing when the Mr came close. The male was impressive, he was large and maybe old?? He looked like a small version of a snow leopard minus the tail, lots of white, lopsided ear and one eye appeared odd at one corner. He came down off the wall and they stayed in the backyard about 10 min, he would carefully approach, she would hiss, then walk around each other cautiously. They sat for a while looking around then some at each other. I couldn't help it, cracked the door and called "here kitty!".
They were very involved with each other, eventually she went over the wall and he quickly followed. I didn't even have my cell phone for the picture.
A special and neat evening to share with my Mom.
