It was one year ago that I found our sweet Milo evicerated and mostly devoured in the neighbor's front yard. I went looking when he didn't show up at the back door one morning. I was aware that we had a bobcat in the neighborhood, but gravely misjudged the threat it posed to our cat. I set my face against that bobcat, and vowed that it wouldn't kill any more neighborhood pets. It took 6 months, but I succeeded in trapping this 40-pound tom in my front yard in January. We miss Milo every day. He was a great cat, full of personality and love, and always snuggled with our Lab Sierra--they were buds. As for the bobcat, his pelt is being tanned and I should have it in a month or two.
