I was given a stray calico female cat that I took to the farm. I have kept it in the barn closed up since Saturday. I let it outside today and she followed me around the barn, and the house. It sarted raining, and was cold, so I let her back in. I've put a shelf about 5-ft off ground in the tractor shed, with a board leaning to the shelf, for acess. I'm going to put the cat box along with the bowl of food on the shelf, all screwed down. I want the cat working for its keep, catching moles, and gophers. I saw a bobcat venturing towards the house Saturday afternoon. That twice that I have seen that cat in 2-weeks. We also have coyotes, fox, and deer. QUESTION: A cat can go up a tree to get away from dogs, what chances do they have with a bobcat?
