Bobcats, Wolves, & Coyotes do live in Spring, Texas

We live so close to Houston in our nice suburban homes, that we sometimes forget that wild critters also share our backyard. This bobcat was found just yards from my driveway on the 23400 block of Cypresswood ( 1/2 mile west of Treaschwig) . Not only do we have confirmed bobcats, but I have also seen coyotes and wolves. Most of the time, these wild creatures will stay clear of mankind, but to be on the safe side, if you back up to the wooded sections of the neighborhood, you may want to keep your pets indoors and supervise small children when outside playing.

Make sure your pet is also current on their Rabies Vaccinations and use a flea prevention all year round. The wild creatures and feral cats do drop flea eggs in your yard as they cross at night and this has proven to be a source of flea infestations to our household pets. The raccoons and rodents also spread Leptospirosis and deer ticks can give your pet Lyme disease, Rocky mountain spotted fever or Ehrlichiosis.
