Feline and Nature Friday

The bobcat family visited the same spot twice in a few days. They played, marked territory, and mom kept a close eye on the kittens.

The kittens love to play together  and do so in a friendly and fun way. One kitten is much smaller than the other. The smaller one loves to play as much as his sibling.

I did, however, spot one thing about the smaller one that gave me pause. That kitten's left eye doesn't shine in the invisible light of the camera. H'es the left one in the photo below, and you can see that his left eye looks black.
It's more obvious in the short video. I worry that it means that there's something wrong with that eye. Let's hope not.

I've been loving watching this family and I hope that they stay in the area for a while! I tend to see mother bobcats and their kittens well into the winter.

Check out the short video.

Many thanks to the LLB Gang for hosting the nature blog hop and Comedy Plus for hosting the feline Friday blog hop!!


  1. oh we hope there is nothing seriously wrong... hugs and potp to this lettly guy...

  2. We hope the kitty's eye will be okay. They are so cute!

  3. that is sad, it really is obvious there is some kind of difference. I hope they will be ok...

  4. I suspect you are correct, and there is likely something wrong with eye. It doesn't seem to bother the kitten though, at least not yet.

  5. Aw, so adorable. Love all the wonders you get to enjoy.

    You need to link these cats to Feline Friday. Just saying.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches to the pusp. ♥

  6. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what a great Feline and Nature Friday...
    Your backyard is full of nature

  7. He/she seems to manage so well, but I am thinking it should shine. They are the cutest of all small animals out there, and I hope he manages with one eye, or it heals well.

  8. Poor kitty, hope the eye will be alright. It's not a good thing to miss one in the wild.

  9. You're right, that eye doesn't look right, but we hope that little one is okay.

  10. So adorable!!! We also hope the kitten's eye is ok.

  11. So cute. But you're right, there is something wrong with that eye. Could hinder hunting when it is older; but adorable at the moment.

  12. You're right. It's like that eye is dead.

  13. Geez, I thought 'I' was bouncy! Those kittehs have nothin' on me! BOL! They are super adorables! I hopes the little kitteh can make it with one good eye ♥

  14. It's so nice to see the family together still. We hope the little kitten does well even if it has a bad eye.

  15. We sure hope that little one can adjust to any issue with the eye, it certainly doesn't look right. :(

  16. We hope the little guy gets better or is able to adjust well to the handicap. The pair are sure cute as can be.
