"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.

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.

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.
