In the past few months there have been a number of bobcat and sightings in our neighborhood.
I'm told by ranger Joe Noval that both are a common site. He also shared that rabbits are a bobcat's prime food supply.
On Wednesday morning when I was out and about shooting photos for Laguna Niguel Patch, a very friendly bobcat seemed to enjoy my presence. I was near Kite Hill. He was also far from afraid.
I would not suggest trying this at home, as bobcats are not pets.
