As for the bobcat feeding alongside the domestic cats, that's entirely possible. I've heard of stranger things. Not all "predatory" animals are necessarily 100% predatory. They are also opportunists in some cases. Cat food = easy no-effort meal. But it wouldn't surprise me if the cats go down in numbers over time .......

Hey don't throw stones at the messenger hah, that's just what they were told when they got it. What's the breed that looks like them? I'm betting that's what it had to be.
