We have bobcats, or wildcats, throughout the Foothills. They are smart and beautiful animals who have learned to live among us and to not disturb us. I met someone a few days ago who said she had a bobcat raising kittens on her roof and she invited me over. Here’s what greeted me:
Two of the kittens watched safely from under the shelter of the elevated roof.
They moved around a bit. Each of these photos is a slightly different pose.
After a while, Mom’s curiosity caused her to take a peek! This is as far as she raised her head. Notice how different her ears look compared to her kittens’ ears.
Looking towards momma!
And then one kitten made a brief appearance on the other side of the roof, but quickly retreated to her shelter.
I did return to the home this afternoon and have more shots to share in a day or so!
