New Kitty On The Farm

Jan 28, 2016
A bobcat, spotted on Sam Manno's farm.

While I was moving hay in the hay loft goat barn I saw what I thought was a new stray house cat at the farm.

It was checking out an old log cabin about 100 feet north of the barn when I noticed it was quite large for a house cat. When it hopped up on the window sill to peer into the window, I noticed about half its tail was missing. While wondering how it lost the half of its tail I realized it was not a house cat at all, but a bobcat!

Jack, the farm dog and I gently encouraged the bobcat to move uphill and away from the goat barn.
