    So I live in a very rural area and for the past several months I've been spotting this solid black cat occasionally at the end of my driveway. It runs off when I go check the mail and I figured it was just some random stray cat. Well today I got a good look at it closer and its no domestic cat, this thing was about 3 times the size of a normal cat! I went and got my camera hoping to get a good shot of it, but it ran off into the woods. I'm gonna keep an eye out for it and hopefully take some pics. Hell at the rate it's grown it may be a damn panther which have been spotted in this area.

    Hahaha love ya too man, glad you got the joke. Now as for this black panther I think I'm gonna setup a food trail tomorrow leading up to my porch, and stakeout at the window and see if it gets close. I'm gonna tame this beast damnit! I got the spirit of Steve Irwin in me.

    No offense, but trying to domesticate a wild animal, will only get it killed or someone else hurt it if loses its fear of man. I too live in a very rural area, nearest neighbor is, as the crow flies, is over a mile. Besides hunting, most wild animals in my area are killed for becoming too acclimated to humans and lose their fear and need to be put down. Then again, you could be joking. :p

    Try and get some good pictures of it and share them, but I’ll have to agree that feeding or trying to befriend a wild animal, is a bad idea for lots of reasons. Admire it, but let it be.

    Holy crap I just saw it again and this time it was only about 30 feet away. I opened the front door to let my male cat (Max Payne) inside to eat and there it was. I went back in to get the camera but it was already gone when I looked back outside. Seeing it that close it's not as big as I initially thought, but it's still a big ass cat.

    Now you're going to make me go out in the snow and take a picture of my humongous black outdoor cat...he weighs about 25 pounds...but with winter fur, he looks more like 40. He's the last one left out of a litter of 8...smart enough to sleep in the garage rafters.

    Nature shows us awesome things, you are lucky to see that creature, just keep distance and respect the wild nature of a bobcat. Those things can pounce and do serious damage if cornered or if they feel in some way threatened.
