I got an email this morning from the Game and Parks Warden. It turns out my "bobcat" is just an unusually large and trim domestic cat. When we saw the badger, I went online and found the pictures to back up what I saw before actually calling it a badger. I should have done that yesterday as well. I feel pretty silly for not getting my facts straight before getting all excited over it yesterday. Today I will try not to let myself get too worked up as I clean the closets and do the laundry. At least this fairy tale has a happy ending. It is supposed to be in the 70's today- sounds like great weather for playing outside after school!
