Pub Date: March 22, 2022

A young bobcat searches a suburban landscape for a territory to call home.

As the day breaks,
feline eyes blink open,
and yowls disrupt the still morning air.

A young bobcat leaves tracks in the snow as he sets out to find a home range of his own. Amidst the harsh winds and icy chill of winter, Yearling travels between the deep wilderness and suburbia, hunting for prey as he goes. He tracks hare, squirrel, pheasant…

Watching.

Waiting.

LEAP!

But each time, he is foiled by the resident predator. Will Yearling find a territory to call his own?
