Tuesday Times

 

Hi Y’all

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!

  5. That's definitely NOT a kitty to mess with!

    On our recent trip to Myrtle Beach, there was a wildlife rehab center that during the day displayed a couple of tigers. We walked by the place at night with the dogs. The tigers had been returned to their larger habitat offsite, so they weren't there. But both my dogs were intoxicated by the smell. Wilson was fascinated and poor Jimmy was absolutely horrified. The scent must have triggered a deep seated instinct to get away from a big cat!

  6. That's not the sort of cat you want to meet on a dark night.

  13. Hey Hawk, Jet here.

    Those look like monster prints, dude. Mom thought bear, too... however, we have panthers here in the tropics (not too many, they're endangered)

    Please be mindful and stay far away, those meows will come with a big bite.
