Late this afternoon our neighbor called, asking if we were missing our cat. Steve had answered the phone, and told him we just had a barn cat, and that he is black, and should be out in the barn. Al told us we should come see what he had in his live trap, teasing that maybe it is our cat! So we went over. He had set a live trap by his garage trying to catch some of the wild racoons that have been making a mess of his yard and garden. Well, he had caught this young bobcat. Not much bigger than a large domestic cat. He was so frightened, and hissing. His tail was just a bob of a tail, and the back of its ears were tipped black. Wish I could have gotten a picture of it without the cage. Al will be letting him go, up the Smokey Hills area, away from our houses and pets.
