"Watch a bobcat frolicking with her kitten on the roof of a home in Phoenix, Arizona. It was all fun and games for a minute or so, but then she noticed the homeowners recording her through a window. That's where it get weird. Imagine a wild predator staring at you with dilated eyes, just inches away. Sure, there's glass to protect you, but her gaze is enough to make one's stomach twist a little, even on video.https://youtu.be/ZhnhMomtv6I
That's a fascinating video. I've seen my cats behave just like that. That is their alert but curious stare. It's not necessarily an aggressive posture. My cats do that when a feral cat or some other critter walks through the back yard. They stare intently out the window, moving slowly closer to get a better look. A quick move by the person recording would probably cause a hasty retreat rather than an attack.It's interesting how similar cat behavior can be across different species.--Peter
True this Peter...
Ears pointed forward means business. Alert. Curious. Watchful.I found the short tail interesting. Is that natural. Otherwise very cat like.Dilated pupils to me means night eyes. They seem to adjust slowly. I notice my cats squinting at night in a well lit room.
