Start watching the trees in the empty homes in your neighborhood! (Though I'm sure no one would want them living that close!) We don't have bobcats where I am at. But I've seen a coyote, a fox, an oppossum and deer. And too many rabbits and squirrels to count! And I wish the raccoons would move away.
They are beautiful animals, no doubt. My grandma had a bobcat that would come up and look in her patio window. It was soooo cute. It would hang out on the patio furniture, then if we went out, it would go away. It came around for a long time, then one day it just left and never came back.
She fed it, but were not allowed to try to make friends with it.
