Upgrading from turtles to panthers…Giveaway and deals

Upgrading My Wildlife for You

In case my tortoises and turtles weren’t doing it for you, I’d like to share with you the furry curve-ball nature threw us the other day…

I was sitting at my kitchen table working on the laptop, and my husband was standing between me and the glass slider door, which is about three feet away from me, when I heard him say, “Aim…”

At that same time I felt a presence…something moving near Mike’s feet that wasn’t Mike’s feet.  

It was a cat.


Just on the other side of the glass.

I jumped to my feet and went scrambling for my phone while Mike stood frozen, eyes locked with the cat, who had just realized we were right next to him. By the time I got back with the video rolling, the cat had skittered over to our patch of palm trees in the center of the yard (which I’ve named “Fronds Ferdinan”).  So I don’t have the stunning closeup on film that my eyes enjoyed, but you can still see him!

We thought bobcat, and then thought panther and had both confirmed by various people — but in the end Florida Fish and Wildlife got back to me and confirmed BOBCAT. (I know the title says Panther…but that just sounds scarier, doesn’t it?)

So I don’t know what I’ll have for you next week. Tiger maybe? Hippo? Death Stalker Scorpion? Honestly I’m starting to wonder how I killed 20 years in Maryland. We called our yard there “The Wild Kingdom” because we had so many squirrels and birds… HA! Not even close!!

    We have a bobcat that has “visited” our backyard several times in the past few months. My husband has posted a video on YouTube which received quite a bit of attention. We live in The Seacoast region of NH. We have seen it carrying a squirrel and also chasing another squirrel. It may have a den near us!
