bobcat gets its name from its stumpy tail and they Bobcats
are likely to be seen during the day only in the winter
when food is scarce.
Bobcats are good swimmers, but they rarely go into the water.
Although, on hot days, they sit, not swim, in pools of water
to keep cool. The farther North bobcats live, the larger
they grow. In Canada, they are the largest. Bobcat kittens
can be tamed and are sometimes kept as pets.
