Oh, they are fun to watch! I know the mother Bobcat well enough that she wouldn't have approved that that one let us get as close as he or she did. She would have called them back onto our flat roof. Since their mother wasn't there this one pushed his or her limits. She has come to trust us but even I give them limits. I don't want them in our backyard and scare them off if the mother Bobcat doesn't call them back. I have a small dog and make sure they are no threat and I don't leave my dog outside alone. I stay with him.
