Bobcats make up a series of grunts, yowls, whines and growls, and the patterns of these noises can make up a language of their own. Most commonly, the cries of a bobcat have been described as sounding like crying babies or screaming women when vocal.
The bobcat is a North American mammal of the cat family, Felidae. The bobcat is an adaptable predator that inhabits wooded areas as well as semi-desert, urban edge, forest edges, and swampland environments. Although it is a relatively quiet mammal, the bobcat may let out loud screams, hisses, or other sounds during courtship of the opposite sex.
