I’m intrigued with the whole of the Feline family. I’m not only drawn to the power and fierceness of this small wild cat, but also I’m particularly attracted to its coloration and special pointed black ear tufts, so unique to the Bobcat and its northern cousin, the Lynx. Though having a small stature, the Bobcats are tough little creatures, about twice the size of a domestic cat. I particularly love their ear tufts. I’ve seen one with kittens in the wild when I lived in the California wilderness. It was so tempting to pick up one of the kittens but I knew better than to catch its mother’s wrath.
