    Yup, 22 years in this house listening to Bobcats as the season go by this is the first big cat we have seen. Coyotes and Coy dogs a plenty but the cats are not seen.

    This shot, she/he is behind a Land Rover 88 chassis, that is out back by the old Long EZ, about 600' from the house. I was upstairs shooting out a window.

    This is an interesting afternoon, now the bear is back, out in my front yard tonight. we last saw him/her when the snow was getting this but looks like he will settle in tonight. Hope we don't meet him when we go out early to get over to the airport since I am hosting a Flying Start event.

    Our spring has finally sprung here, two weeks ago nothing was blooming yet, we drove down to Conn along Rt 22 and were commenting that everyone had been mowing.

    We had a delightful pet cat decades back that her face looked allot like this one, but I expect trying to pet the top of the head of a cat that stands 30+ inches is well advised.

    Steve,
    This Long EZ started life down your way better part of 30 odd years ago. Somewhere in TX, I have some documents that could hone in on where.
    The build has it's share of problems and was abandoned, came up north here 22ish years back.
    New owner never got to it so it sat outdoors all this time. Over time even Vermont sun can do damage to a polyester glass layup. But the snow, rain and leafs ganged up inside with the mice families to make this impractical as any possible project.
    As such it got donated to the EAA chapter my wife and I manage.
    Most every part to it such as the 5X5 wheels and brakes that were in boxes are all but destroyed while stored inside the cockpit.
    Kind of sad because the quality of the layups look good, but things like no fuel fillers got installed during the build. Something that is impractical to try to install since one can not apply glass from within the tanks to bond the neck in place.
    at this pint there is no resin in the outer layers of fabric and although that can be repaired, this is not one to do that to.

    If a plane could be built by pressing buttons on a cell phone there would hundreds of thousands of them out there.

    We have quite a few Bobcats down here, they won't bother you, very passive to humans. I suprised one by my floatplane a few years back and we stood eye to eye about 12' apart for about 10 minutes till he got bored with me talking to him and turned around and continued flipping over rocks and twigs looking for food?

    We sure are concerned when our cats are outside though. They are generally only out for short romps during the daytime, but we still loose one at times.
    But then my wife has been afraid when the Raccoons and Fox are near the house, yet a few of our cats stalk them, fun to watch.

    I think our girl might have gotten hold of one of those tough cats this morning. She doesn't understand that some bunnies are sharp.Click image for larger version.

    She's a ballistic dog and leads with her face. She's learned a few tough lessons.

    Had over a dozen Elk sit about 15 feet from side of house here in Evergreen CO, and bunch of deer walk up the driveway. See fox too. Haven’t seen any mountain lions yet.

    For sure we have no Elk here, Only one I have seen up close was the one tearing the back of our rental car apart 30 some years back when the car with no snow tires could not get us away from that big angry boy. That was northern Colorado.

    We used to have Moose here in the yard, Unfortunately Moose are like horses and humans and can be taken down by the tic born diseases we have here.
    Last one I have seen in the yard back in '06,

    We recently witnessed an encounter between our neighbors cat and a Red Fox. The Fox was in the street and the cat was next to a tree. They were staring each other down until suddenly they started chasing each other around in the woods. It was difficult to figure which was doing the chasing. Finally they went off in opposite directions. An amusing and entertaining encounter.

    During a summer when our fields were growing tall we watched a mangy looking fox come out of the tall grass onto the lawn, he kept looking back over his shoulder. Our fear was that one of the best cats we've had was out, but very soon he came out of the grass stalking the fox. Sure wish I had a camera in reach that moment.

    I guess it is true domestic cats and fox are quite equal out on the wild.
