Ethel: Carson! Grab your camera!
I did as ordered and ran to the guest room, where Ethel and Smooch were standing.
Carson: What is it? Where is it?
I still didn't see it but aimed the lens in the general direction
of Ethel's pointing finger.
"It" was a bobcat, and this was only the second time I had seen one close to the house.
I think he was checking out all of Ethel's furniture on the back porch.
Apparently mid-century modern is not his style, so he sauntered off.
p.s. He did not leap the fence, nor harm the chickens and/or Johnny.
