Bobats on the roof, in a northern suburb of Phoenix....

A mother bobcat found a secluded intersecting roof line area on the top of a house in Cave Creek where she gave birth to two kits. The house had a skylight, so the owners could watch the cats frolicking on the roof. When the owners noticed that one kit was missing, they originally assumed that it had been taken by a hawk or owl - until the owner remembered that there was an open column off of the roof. He determined the kit had fallen to the bottom of the column and drilled the column open so the kit could crawl out. The kit came out and promptly walked over to the swimming pool and promptly fell in.

4. Aww. I'm so happy the home owner was willing to share his space with this

family. Mama bobcat probably also was a good exterminator of rodents in exchange for the living space.

13. Mama cat has her paws full with this one!

He was probably really thirsty, and somewhat disoriented, when exiting the column. A big round of applause to the homeowner who put the animal's welfare ahead of the esthetics of his house.
