If I remember correctly, having bobcats in the area keeps down some of the problems with diseases that deer and other wild animals bring into neighborhoods. Since the bobcats clean themselves like domestics, they don't have the problems. We have both bobcats and [just starting to get]mountain lions back in Eastern Kentucky but the lions are smaller than the Rocky Mtn. ones that I have seen.
And Prof, these ain't your average 30-40 # kitties. Think of them as a furry chainsaw.
I looked at getting a serval at one point [went with Maine Coons] until I talked with some owners who told me about some of their more nocternal habits that will wake up the dead. Great cats but they like to play at night.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
