After a long search we conclude that no news is good news
After a long search we conclude that no news is good news. This bobcat sees people all the time.

The good news about not finding the bobcat is that it wasn’t injured and not sick enough that she could be caught. Jamie is pretty sure she has seen this cat by the trail before. The bobcat was staying just out of reach of the people who had called, rather than bolting away, and that’s what they thought was odd.  Jamie and Carole blade and bike the trail all the time and will keep an eye out for her and have alerted the Park Rangers to watch out for an ailing bobcat.  If she is not sick, and just the typically thin FL bobcat, then right next to the dump is a great place to find rats.  Bobcats make lousy pets, but great neighbors.

    I am confused?

    Is Amanda living with Andre and Arthur, or is she living apart?????

     
    • BCR

      They all live together, but Arthur and Andre hang out together and Amanda is more of a loner.

       
      • dominic mayo

        Well, that is so great!! 😀

        Also, will people be able to see there Cat-A-Tat on any tour?? I wanted to go see them for my birthday, but I wanted to make sure before I went so I can get a good perspective of which tour to get 🙂
