On Saturday, D's friend was here. They took over the living room floor and built a village with a forest and a farm surrounding it and were sorting the animal collection accordingly. There was one that looked like a bobcat. Then we discussed the difference between a lynx and bobcats and we couldn't really figure it out.

On Monday, the news broke out that the bobcat at the DC Smithsonian Zoo escaped. It returned with minor injury on Wednesday. And Petula Dvorak came up with an excellent piece titled, The Ballad of Ollie the Bobcat: Back in her cage, just like the rest of us

A little bit to laugh during some times that have been anything but amusing.

Nice! Also, I learned something new today, because I thought that a Bobcat and a Lynx were the same thing. :-) Of course, to make things more complicated, both are Lynxes...

This was a great article on it, if D's still interested in figuring it out. http://animals.howstuffworks.com/mammals/bobcat-vs-lynx.htm
