A mother and 3 cubs loitered in our yard for several hours between 11am and dark.
Bobcat sightings are common in this neighborhood with reports of small dogs being taken.
Our yard is dog free and provides very good cover. It is heavily landscaped and attracts large numbers of birds.
When first sighted, one of the kittens was eating at the remains of a rabbit carcass. In the early afternoon, the mother brought another rabbit carcass into the yard.
The mother mainly remained under cover along our back fence behind our red tips. The 3 kittens explored the yard freely and played. The kittens explored our porch and approached our rear windows.
The family was seen napping twice. The kittens appeared to nap in our trees.
The kittens went up the trees whenever dogs were barking. The mother did not react to dogs barking in other yards.
