Those of us living on the edges of town with some acreage are sometimes treated to a very special sight, either a single bobcat or, in this case, a bobcat family. This mother with young was seen at the home of a friend in the Catalina Mountain foothills, but last summer we saw two juveniles with their arms around some large potted plants on our back porch. We’re sure they were attempting to keep cool in the shade. They slept there for about 1-2 hours. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get good pictures like our friend did because we were afraid we would frighten them away by getting too close.
Guests are always intrigued with the local wildlife here at Hacienda del Desierto Bed & Breakfast. Those who stay in the Galleria are most likely to see bobcats as there is a wild animal pond just outside the window. The most frequently seen animals at the Hacienda are the Javalina.
