Caught on Camera: Bobcat's Backyard Visit

An Arizona woman enjoying a relaxing morning had quite a surprise when she spotted a bobcat sitting in her backyard.

Bobcats are common throughout Arizona at all elevations, especially in rimrock and chaparral areas, and in the outskirts of urban areas where food is readily available.

Bobcats are generally seen alone, but groups may consist of mating pairs, siblings, or mothers with kittens.

Bobcats are most active around sunset and sunrise, and it is not uncommon to find one napping under a shrub in a brushy backyard.

If you see a bobcat near your home, there is no need to panic. Bobcats rarely attack people. Bobcats may visit an area to find food, water, shelter, or the space they need to live.

  1. Luckily the housecat was inside the house or the bobcat might have taken it for food. It has happened in my neighborhood where a bobcat ran off with a pet cat never to be seen again. Other cats over a year time had disappeared with no trace whatsoever. I live in SE NC. Just saying be careful with your kitties & try to keep them inside & still enjoy the critters in your yard, grab your camera!! :)

    Ha ha ha. The cat is like, "What are you doing on my porch? I'm gonna kick your butt!" The bobcat is like, "Ho-hum, guess I'll have my bath then take a nap."

    So unusual to see and forget that cute Bobcat is wild. Glad there is a glass between them. Would not totally trust him otherwise.
