Our plush bobcat stuffed animal is in stock and ready to ship! As of this morning, you can still order and ship by Priority mail to arrive in the U.S. for Christmas. We suggest you order by 10:00 a.m. Pacific time, but later orders may still make it in today's morning mail. We can also ship it this afternoon, and it should arrive for Christmas. About now is when we start to suggest that Express Mail is the best way to go. But, we're here and we'll be shipping all day. If it can arrive just after Christmas, you can still use the least expensive shipping option.
Our cuddly, stuffed bobcat plush toy is 11 1/2 inches tall and 19 1/2 inches long from nose to tail. He has a gentle, kind expression, soft furry-pointed ears, tickly whiskers and a flexible bobbed tail. Our stuffed bobcat is lonely and looking for a friend to snuggle up against. Be sure to see our other bobcat and lynx toys and gifts.
The bobcat (Felis rufus) is one of the most interesting desert animals found in North America. It likes to live in arid brushy areas where it preys on small mammals, especially rabbits. It is often a problem to sheep ranchers, as lambs are an easy meal for the bobcat. It also enjoys visiting the chicken coop. The bobcat gets its name from its short black-tipped bobbed tail and is distinguishable from its cousin, the lynx, which is larger and has a slightly longer all-black tail. Even though the bobcat looks like a cute pussycat, it is fierce with an extremely agressive growl and snarl. The bobcat is trapped for its fur and is under greater pressure for survival as more population moves into semi-arid and arid regions. It is not presently endangered but its fate remains uncertain as human contact increases.
