Bobby is a bobcat that's been hunting gophers and jack rabbits in the vineyard for years, but I've never been able to get a picture until now. He looks like he weights about 25 lbs.:

He lopes off unconcerned as . . .

. . . our idiot son Fuzzy (our cat actually) puffs himself up and pretends to chase Bobby from far, far behind. The pictures don't show how Bobby is substantially bigger (and more ferocious I'm sure) than our foolish, pampered cat:

Great shots of cat behavior. House cat's are funny that way. Mine was confused last week when 3 deer showed up in the garden, he knew he was beat but hated them in "his" space! It was cute to watch.

Too bad Bobs can't be tamed.
