Most house cats are quite spoiled. They get everything they need at home. They’re showered with lots of love, food, and treats. They even get to sit next to sunny windows.

One house cat felt a bit bored at home.

Sitting next to a glass window, she was quite surprised to see an unexpected guest. She immediately went to see what it was doing there.

The house cat’s visitor was a wild animal.

It was a Bobcat. Considered one of the most successful wild cat species, it was a huge surprise to find the animal there.

Bobcats live in a wide variety of areas. With their reclusive nature, you can find them in coastal swamps, forests, and deserts. They are also commonly found in mountainous suburban areas in the United States.

To the house cat, her visitor is no different from her.

For her, the bobcat looks just like her. It was just a bit bigger but with similar-looking ears and tail.

Curious, the house cat tried to look for ways to get near the bobcat.

She walked around the glass window, trying to find a hole she could fit in. When she failed to find one, she tapped the window with her cute paw.

At first, the bobcat didn’t know what the house cat was doing.

However, when it turned around and saw her, it was taken aback. Its eyes grew wider as if it were like, “Who are you?”

When the bobcat realized that there was no real threat, it went back to its relaxed position.

The house cat, on the other hand, continued looking for an exit. She was gently scratching the glass window. It was her attempt to get her visitor to play with her.

The bobcat was clearly not interested.

And it’s hard to blame the animal for feeling that way. Its spot was super comfortable. With the sunlight and grass nearby, it was the perfect spot for a nap.

It didn’t even feign interest.

The bobcat turned around and went back to his nap. This time, it made sure that its back was facing the house cat.

The poor cat made another attempt.

This time, the bobcat didn’t show any reaction. It just hilariously looked at the cat and went back to sleep! The cat’s mom couldn’t help but laugh.

The house cat got lucky.

Even if the bobcat didn’t show interest in her, she shouldn’t feel disappointed. In fact, she should feel lucky.

Bobcats can attack house cats.

They can kill and eat a wide range of animal species- from tree squirrels and rabbits to deer. Since they don’t do a lot of thinking while hunting for food, they will likely attack house cats if they see one.

To make sure your house cat stays safe at home, you can discourage bobcats from coming into your property. You can use noise and motion-activated deterrents at home. You can also use an air horn or a motion-activated sprinkler to drive the wild animal away.

Also, try not to leave water or pet food outside even when your cat is indoors. It’s also a good idea to build fences around your property.
