I had a GREAT experience y’day .
I was told there is a Bob Cat in this area- in the bush , so I started to virtually ‘stalk it ‘ – -knowing how animals will stay hidden and watch .
I noted its paw marks in the mud, after a rain, and followed it around the bush .
All the while, I had ‘this feeling of being watched ‘ !
I did this a few times, during the past one month I have been staying here at this place called Sky Ranch Lodge- Sedona ( for those who like google – go for it ! )
Y’day was a bad ‘snow day ‘ here, and I did not want to venture down the hill , so stayed around the property .
The Sedona Airport is the next lot- so I walked around it, and did some bird watching- lovely Western Blue Birds all over the place .
I was actually looking for Meadow Larks- but, found t he Blue Birds instead , and few other species .
Anyway- I walked into the bush – no luck with my Bob Cat .
I returned to the Sky Ranch private guest Viewing Area- a lovely area where weddings etc are held, with the gorgeous view of the Red Rocks of Sedona .
I was looking for the bird – Spotted Towhee – when something moving in the bush caught my eye –
You guessed it – My Friend Mr Bobby Cat !!
It made ‘eye contact ‘with me – all the while walking on the ground below, against the fence .
I whipped out the camera and took a few shots .
It was just PURE magic for me to see this little cat- making such a powerful eye contact with me , as if to say “ I know you , I have seen you, how are you ‘ !!
Then it retreated into the bush , and I followed it into the bush .
I knew it was watching me – as I walked through the bush, came out at the Sedona Airport Bush area , and back to Sky Ranch Viewing Area .
I showed the pics to a few guests who had gathered to see the famous Sedona Red Rock Sunset .
Today, I talked to one of the garden crew- who told me, “ tell your friend Mr Bobby Cat- not to eat the Koy in the pond at Sky Ranch ‘ !!
I will send the pics in the next mail- as I am having some difficult issues with my lap top with pic+ text in the same e-mail .
My son will sort it out .
So, for now- it will an e-mail with text with another mail with only pics .
Fortunately, I was alone in the Viewing Area- where normally there are at least half a dozen people .
Because y’day was a very cold day, people stayed indoors .
It is a fabulous sunset now- so I gotta get out !
Enjoy the Bobby Cat Tale from Sky Ranch Lodge- Sedona .
