Very good point. I have two domestic short haired, house pet cats and even they jump out of no where and try to attack me. ROFL I can't imagine a wild cat doing that. My house cats are just playing. The wild cat will be serious.

Probably be the last "pet" you'll ever have. If you are serious, you are creating a "A Recipe for Disaster".

Aw cmon! Don't discourage the kid. This may be my one and only chance to get a secondhand account of some one attempting to raise (train?) a real life f**king bobcat!

Besides, It may be just Hollywood liberal media that says wild animals shouldnt be kept as pets. I can see that. It feels right somehow. goddammed socialists anyway

:P

That is awesome right there!


I think you will have litter box and spraying issues with a wildish cat. I wish you the best of luck. Maybe a desert species would be better given you location.

while it's possible to somewhat domesticate wild animals ans some people do have luck in doing so, but for the most part, it's just not practical for most people. wild animals have different instincts than domestic animals.

Why would you want a Bobcat for a pet?

As a metter of fact there are several breeders of many lynx species across the US. While yes the are a "wild animal" every animal IS an animal and ALL of them have wild instincts, think no ones ever had a domesticated pet turn on them? Never had a dog or a house cat bite at you? I have been reviewing a few places that have been breeding lynx and hybrid lynx's (two different lynx species not a domestic and lynx cross) for many years and have great luck with loving pets not just with the owners but with other cats dogs and humans. Its not as far fetched as many may believe. None of them have had a turn and injury from these animals, they play, snuggle, and do "cat stuff" i.e. lazy bastards.

I saw a show where they rescued two bobcat kittens when they were very small. Once the grew to several months old they were literally bounding 6-7 feet up and from one side of the enclosure to another. They look to be extremely agile and fast!

Be safe and have fun with it if you do get one. Keep us posted.
