Mother bobcat plays with her kittens - Part 1!

A cam had a very nice surprise for us. My first view was a kitten leaping up a tree (upper right of photo).

Mom showed up soon thereafter, and the kitten came down to meet her. The second kitten leaped into the scene too - and the three rolled around together.

The smaller kitten wandered off at some point. Mom kept playing with the other kitten.

The video is more fun than the still photos. Check it out if you have time. To keep it shorter, I split the bobcats' play session into two parts. Today is Part 1. The second part will be coming soon.


  1. what a pleasure to see them.... thanks for sharing nature like it is ;O)

  2. At first it looks like the mom is more interested in scent marking but then the fun begins. I would love to add some "thought bubbles" when the mom lays on top of the kitten. The kitten would be complaining about not being able to breathe. Those two sure were having fun. It's amazing to see them in such a relaxed mood even if it was only for a few minutes.

  3. I put the video on full screen and it was almost like being there. they are sooooooo beautiful and funny...

  4. It's so fun to watch! There is so many similarities in how they play like house cats do. Glad to see the little one is still doing well.

  6. Aw, they are so precious. Cats are cats are cats.

    Have a fabulous day. Scritches to the pups. ♥

  7. It makes one want to jump in and roll around with them, although I know that is not correct. They look so sweet and soft!

  8. Such fun, fun, fun, kittens will be kittens!

  9. OMCs...I love this...kittens and puppies are such fun to watch
    Hugs cecilia

  11. What fun to see Mom playing with her kids, and wild cats playing just like house cats! ♥
