    DefaultBobcat in neighborhood!!

    One of my neighbors just came over to tell us he saw a bobcat in the neighborhood last night . He has notified the authorities. Sweet man... he knows I get up while it is still dark and walk Zoe and Zeb; he didn't want anything to happen to us. I guess I will have to walk them when it is light...bless their hearts they will have to wait a bit in the morning to do their toilet. scary........but better to be safe......

    And here I thought the fox who walks up to me at night was scary!

    Be safe, hope they catch him.

    It must be "wildlife week" Twice so far this week we've had a bear come and visit during the night. The first night I heard the trash can hit the ground when he tipped it over...at 10:30 at night! I went out to chase him off and caught a good look at his back-side as he jumped over the retaining wall and ran off back into the woods.

    Then last night he came back for another visit...this time it was 1:30 AM. He knocked the trash can over again, and grabbed a small bag and carried it off about 20 yards, ripped it open, and scattered the contents. I do not particularly care to be outside at 1:30 AM picking up trash!!! Grrrrr. He's/she is starting to annoy me.

    This is for you buddy, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-UI...ature=youtu.be A big THANK YOU to Jacki Barineau, author and artist of this song.

    That is scary! We don't have many bobcats but we do have bear and moose. The moose can be bad as they will charge and strike at you or your dog with their front feet. I have seen lots but so far nothing too close. Knock on wood.

    Wow!! Now that isn't something to mess around with!

    When a let Cammy out for her last potty time last night, there was a red fox in our yard! I haven't seen one of those around here....woodchucks, deer, turkey, but never a fox. It was more afraid of us...took off running.

    Be safe!!

    myfavorite dog, we live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in a suburban area......I read they are shy, nocturnal, weigh about 20 pounds and are 2 feet tall. They will eat mice, squirrels, cats, even small or sick deer. We have seen deer, wild turkeys, and foxes in our neighborhood, but this is a first. I certainly don't want to run into it when walking my two........

    We had our resident bobcat in our yard in FL. Katie would stare at it from the screen room and the cat just stared back at her with attitude.

    Last week on both side of us in our county there were bears. I got my map out real fast to see how close they were. Not real close....but close enough.
