Yesterday, we took some stuff down to the flea market to give to a friend to sell. That way, the friend may be able to make a little bit more money than without it. We didn't stay to walk around and came back home while it was still early morning. On the way back, my wife spotted that big cat again in a small opening in the trees along the north side of the road about two miles from our place.
You remember my blog postings telling how we heard it yelling at night and my son got some good pictures of it on his game cameras that he has set up around our place. I am glad it is still around, adds some spice to our lives. Did you know that they can have a large territory? Yep, depending on their food availability, they can have a territory that covers anywhere from 25 to 785 square miles. Dang, that is large spread from minimum to maximum. I would imagine that in this area, they would only roam close to the minimum area. There is a lot of food for them when you consider all the pets and livestock people have around here. My son has plenty of small livestock to keep them well fed (grin). Of course, he really doesn't want to use them as feed for the big cat.
I have never seen one in the wild, and envy my wife sighting it yesterday. Of course I wouldn't mind at all if it decided to move on. But once one has been here, you just never know when it or another one will come back. A little excitement in our lives is a welcome thing. . . well, it is for me, my wife, not so much. Now stay away from the big kitties and have a great day, you hear?
