Yeah, but I just don't hike with that guy. Even chipmunks attack him.

I also was worried about it and don't want to approach this kitty. I basically walk around, 150+ ft circle. However bobcat was interested and come closer by himself. I would say 40-50 ft or so. I met bobcats before, but this was first time when he was so close.

hmmmm. My guess is kitty was sizing you up for a meal. Kitty was tired of eating just mice. I'd of picked up a rock and tossed it at the furry little bastard.
