Bobcats Take Over House at Fort Griffin

In January, the folks at Fort Griffin State Historic Site in Texas noticed that a bobcat and her two cubs had moved into one of the historic houses. It's their den now, and who's going to argue with a mother bobcat? Of course, they set up a camera to catch the family's activities. Click on the images here to get the videos started. By February, the cubs are bigger, and are out exploring their world, including all those other critters that come by! Watch this compilation video below.

You can see other videos as they become available at the Fort Griffin Historical Site Facebook page. -via Metafilter

Bobcats are amazing animals. I moved down to Louisiana 6 years ago and the house we bought was pretty secluded even though it's in a subdivision. We have 2.3 acres and it's heavily wooded with a finger of the bayou at the back of our property. Well, one day I'm looking out the backdoor and see a bobcat come strolling up my backyard. What was so impressive is the coloring on the cat because it's fur almost looks like smoke. It was like trying to focus on something that was deliberately out of focus. I wasn't even sure what I was seeing until it got quite close to my back door! What a gorgeous creature. It hung around for about a year and then moved on.
