Remember the scent? I mentioned about the scent? Look at these claw marks!
And here they are next to my Human Papa’s foot.
Let me tell you, I marked that spot!
The man that keeps the bee hives says there is a big cat around there. He’s a BIG cat! Must be what was marking that tree…remember the tree I showed y’all last year?
We thought it could only be bears, but bears don’t usually go high into trees. Now seems more likely that it is a big cat. Not your ordinary house kitty, my friends.
Bobcats are common, but big cats are usually heard and not seen in these parts. Tales of panthers are common, but I’ve never seen one. Hope I don’t run into this fellow on our hikes!
Y’all come back now!
