Woman Records A Bobcat Family Having A Blast On Her Front Porch

ADVERTISEMENT

Get ready for your daily dose of cuteness. Here’s something that you don’t see every day—a friendly family of bobcats relaxing right on your doorstep. Artist Kathy Maniscalco brightened up our day when she posted photos and videos of a mama bobcat with her 5 kittens relaxing near her home in Sante Fe, New Mexico.

While 3 of the tiny bobcats were sitting on the wall with their mom, 2 others were up in the porch. One of the pair that wasn’t afraid to climb up can be seen meowing at the camera while the other one looks like we all do after a tough week at work.

Kathy even mentioned that she’s thinking of turning one of the family bobcat photos into a painting in the future. We’d absolutely love to see it and we’re looking forward to the project. Meanwhile, let’s enjoy some adorable and fluffy bobcats, shall we?

The artist also posted two videos that she took of the bobcat family through a window. She told KOB4 in a phone interview all about the playful encounter.

“Oh, lo and behold there were babies, babies that were having their milk snack. I thought, ‘Oh this is just too good to be true! What a gift!’ So I just kept recording little video clips and they stopped feeding then they started, in another video that I posted, they started playing,” she said.

According to Kathy, the kittens were stretching, relaxing, and generally being adorable. “We got to see their beautiful spotted tummies and the momma cleaning them and it was just so amazing. I couldn’t believe my eyes because I was literally 6 inches away from them. They did not mind at all my iPhone recording them.”

That’s when Kathy noticed the two kittens hidden up in her porch. “And they were so at peace and I thought, ‘This is a message maybe for all of us just to relax.”

The bobcats moved on from the artist’s home after around 4 hours. Kathy said that she got a lot of attention from people because of her videos. She even had complete strangers reaching out to her on Facebook to thank her for sharing the beautiful content that helped lift their spirits during these difficult times.

Storytelling, journalism, and art are a core part of who I am. I've been writing and drawing ever since I could walk—there is nothing else I'd rather do. My formal education, however, is focused on politics, philosophy, and economics because I've always been curious about the gap between the ideal and the real. At work, I'm a Senior Writer and I cover a broad range of topics that I'm passionate about: from psychology and changes in work culture to healthy living, relationships, and design. In my spare time, I'm an avid hiker and reader, enjoy writing short stories, and love to doodle. I thrive when I'm outdoors, going on small adventures in nature. However, you can also find me enjoying a big mug of coffee with a good book (or ten) and entertaining friends with fantasy tabletop games and sci-fi movies.

I'm a visual editor at Bored Panda. I kickstart my day with a mug of coffee bigger than my head, ready to tackle Photoshop. I navigate through the digital jungle with finesse, fueled by bamboo breaks and caffeine kicks. When the workday winds down, you might catch me devouring bamboo snacks while binging on the latest TV show, gaming or I could be out in nature, soaking up the tranquility and communing with my inner panda.
