Our most recent and very astonishing encounter with wildlife here happened a few weeks ago, when a Mama lynx and her seven kittens decided to visit our back porch!  

I was awakened in the early hours by a noise outside, and upon investigating saw a couple of lynx kittens playing! I grabbed my camera and took a few photos, and they scampered off… I thought that was the end of it. But, as I gently opened the inside of the screen door, I heard a mewing sound.  It was then I saw the mother lynx, calling to her kits. They each proceeded to line up right there on the deck beside her.  

SEVEN KITTENS!  My camera started to click, and they all looked up to see what that strange looking noise was! From there, they proceeded to play and frolic on the deck, and then in yard.  It was an amazing morning to say the least!
