Bobcats Beware!

Apparently the terror inspired by this summer’s cougar madness has trickled its way down the kitty tree. According to NBC Connecticut’s Facebook page, Newington town officials are issuing a warning to residents after a bobcat was spotted in the northwest section of town.

Now, I have a healthy fear of wild (and domestic) cats. As I type this, I’m watching my own cat try to kill one of my relatives. But bobcats are not particularly fearsome. They’re kind of badass, but not all that bloodthirsty. So I’d like to tell the good people of Newington that the only living creatures who should fear a bobcat are small annoying dogs and fat, lazy pet cats.
