(No, I didn’t actually take this photo… 😉 )

Wow – I was taking Riley out for his “business” and just happened to turn around in time to see a big bobcat about 15 feet away from us.  He crossed the road and leapt vertically up a cliff and disappeared.  Very cool.  That probably explains why we haven’t seen the deer mom and twins in our backyard lately as well.


Guess I’ll be more cognizant of Riley’s whereabouts when he’s out so he doesn’t end up becoming bobcat lunch.
