Bobcats are found at all elevations, especially in rimrock and chaparral areas, and in the outskirts of urban areas where food is generally available. My house was in the Catalina foothills and a perfect place for them to visit.
They can jump 12 ft. high and are often heard walking on the flat rooftops of the houses or curled up under a tree in the Southwest. They feed on small mammals and birds including domestic birds and rabbits. And they eat lizards, snakes, and small pets, including house cats. Living in the desert among wildlife means being responsible for house pets. Domestic birds, dogs, and cats need to be kept inside the house if they don’t want to become possible food! Bobcats are not considered a threat to humans. They are graceful creatures with their rich tan coats and dark spots.
