Bobcat Or Housecat?

Recommended Posts

I only have the one pic of this guy and I'm not too sure what it is. I've caught a couple of other bobcats this year, but they were a lot lighter and had a longer tail. I'm posting a pic of a deer standing in almost the same spot a few minutes later for size comparison but that probably doesn't help. I had several pictures of this deer in nervous and alert poses. The following is a regular pic, comparison pic and a cropped pic.....I'm thinking it's a dark phased male bobcat....

Color looks like a house cat but size compared to the deer does look huge for a house cat.

Never seen a bobcat with lines, so I would have to go with a housecat.

It looks like a housecat ,the breed is called a "manx".They are born with a bobtail.My sister had on that was black.

Hey guys...thanks for your input on this. I think you're right and bearhunter nailed it with the breed of cat called manx. I looked it up on the internet and got a picture of one that looks similar. I want to place a camera back there in the hopes of getting a view from the front. I never new there was a breed of domestic cats born without a tail! Ya learn something new every day!
