we have 'em too but up here they are mostly white with black spots about 20-30 pounds. The gold ones are much bigger and we call them mountain lions or cougars although the DEC says there are no mountain lions in NY. Regardless in western NY they are protected. I've never seen one come up to a house before, usually they freak out around human stuff and run away.

We have a couple cubs running around my lower field . They are just a little larger than our house cat . BTW mountain lions have longer tails Bobcats are very short . Just a good way to tell quickly . Dave

No, a wild turkey. In the first picture, along side of the cat, you can see the turkey's shadow, as she had gone airborne.

That is an awsome looking cat,very nice pics as well.
Around here the variety looks more like a Fawnish-to-greyish tabby type pattern and coloring like the one pictured.. Image

Last year we saw our first Lynx, (I'm guessing a canadian Lynx cause it didn't look like a Bobcat type) cool looking cat.

Everyone around is saying they haven't many squirrels this year, I can say for certainty that it's true (my hickory nuts are still on the ground). We have serious a Fishercat population that seem to be decimating the bushy tailed rats.

They are cute when they are fawns.

Also interesting:

The rope in the photo goes to the birdfeeder. I developed a pulley system to raise and lower the feeder to fill it and then keep it up out of the bears reach. the rope goes to the side of the house, about 15 feed away. We lost several bird feeders to the bears.
