Look who showed up at Grandma & Grandpa-kittie's house--
Missus Bobcat, and her three kittens: Bobby, Bobbie, and Robert!
Here's what Grandma-kitty wrote about the visit:
Hi, Just having breakfast and mother bobcat came prancing through our patio with her three baby kits. The one by our patio door was snooping and mother left with the other two. Baby realized she was alone and was mewing loudly for mother. We stepped back so mother could get it and the next pictures are of them are just sitting around. I can't tell you how excited we were!!!! Dad and I are sure they are still being nursed because they were very tiny, but healthy and cute looking. Mother looked healthy too.
What's in there?
Look at my BIG paws.
Our ears mimic eyes and fool our prey!
Mommy makes sure we stay close.
I got your back, Mommy!
Aren't they adorable?
We hope they'll be back for more visits, the next-door neighbor has a ground level birdbath that the Bobcats often drink from, so maybe more pictures! We think this might be a second litter for Missus Bob, it's late in the year to have such little kittens. There's plenty of quail and hares and pack rats to eat, so the Bobcats are quite successful around the area.
Kudos to the Grandpawrents to get such wonderful photos!

Steve News: He is out of the hospital and in a rehab center now. His breathing is still quite weak and he's had a tracheotomy, so he can't talk. He has physical & speech therapy daily. The staples for the incision are out and his wound is healing well--however he has a nasty bedsore on his tail bone which makes it all the more imperative that he regain his strength and start sitting up! His Mom is a trouper and stays with him every day, keeping him awake and exercising what he can move, which right now is only his hands and feet. He still could use some purrs, kitties; Steve is on the mend but he has a long long way to go.
