A kitten turned up in my family's yard. Because of her tanish-grey coloring and the black tufts on her ears, we at first wondered if she was a bobcat kitten. A quick look at bobcat traits (she has a long black tail, no ruff of fur around her face) proved that not to be true, and we figured she was just a slightly odd-looking stray domestic cat. We took her in.
However, I've since read that domestic cats can breed with bobcats. I live in rural Kansas, where, to my knowledge, bobcats are rare but not nonexistent, and I'm unsure if this can occur in the wild, or just in captivity?
She's a sweet, happy kitten, no larger than an average kitten (assuming she's between 2 - 3 months), but behavior seems far more aggressive than any other kitten we've had.
It would put my mind at ease if someone could tell me more about the possibilities of bobcat-domestic breeding, or point me somewhere that would explain just what such an offspring (if possible) would look like. I keep coming up with incredibly vague answers from the websites I've searched. I assume she's just a domestic, but I thought I should look into it more before she grows larger.
