Rufus is a young bobcat (Felis rufus) that lives at the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo. Call (650) 329-2111 for directions and hours.

These first two pictures were taken several months ago when he was about 6.5kg.

Rufus chewing my arm He would never bite, honest!

This next picture is more recent, shortly after his first birthday, and he's about 10 kg now. He's on the right, and Nataiyu, a 10-year old female is on the left teaching him a lesson. I'm sure he won't act so submissive for long.
