What do you do when a Bobcat wanders in....

Ok, so we had some major excitement around here last friday night, and it was just the thing to bring me out of my blogging slump.

A Bobcat in the bathroom.

Yep, that's right, a wild Bobcat in the bathroom!!!!


My Aunt opened the front door for some fresh air and in he walked. Straight into the bathroom and laid down.

Of course Uncle Mark calls Chris at work and tells him to come home right now and see this animal that has wandered into their house. So Chris races home and we all go over to see what all the fuss was about.

Yep, there he was, just making himself at home in the bathroom. Unbelievable.

My facebook page was popular that night. 37 comments. Cool beans.

So anyways, the sherriffs dept and wildlife dept came and got the Bobcat out. Chris and uncle Mark included , it took 7 grown men to get him out. He didn't make a peep the entire time, just wiggled some when they put the snare around him.

While we were trying to figure out what to do, we kept going and opening the bathroom door to look at him and take pics. He just sat there.

Turns out he had been most likely ran over and he was badly wounded. Needless to say, they put him "to sleep". RIP "Shutara" ( of course in all the Facebook hoopla he was indeed named).
