We get our share of backyard visitors…Since the very first day we visited the property where we now live, I have affectionately called our little piece of heaven the “hundred acre woods”. This reference comes from the adventures of Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh. Christopher Robins woodland friends consist of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga and little roo.
The very first day we visited the property we were greeted by large Owls, rabbits and piglets. We are regularly visited by neighbors on horseback, Whitetail Deer and their offspring, armadillo, opossum, countless birds and an assortment of snakes.
But over the last few weeks we have been visited by one very beautiful but very dangerous Tigger….a Texas Bobcat. She has been skirting the woods that border our home, probably hunting for food for her litter. She doesn’t seem to be concerned with us…as we have seen her at different times of the day. I hope she continues to keep her distance because this momma will protect her litter if a threat becomes apparent.
