I was washing the dishes, according to my wife a rare event, but the real rarity was when I looked out the window. We are near West Lake and are surrounded by watershed, I saw a large cat in the back yard eating some type of small animal. I looked through the binoculars and saw distinctive black and white tipped ears, brownish reddish fur with a darker stripe along the back. I identified it as Lynx. We also have fisher cat sightings in the front yard.
