Finally in resignation my Dad decided, wisely, that this wouldn’t work and we let her run free.
The bobcat knew how to flee when she was in perceived danger.
I wish I knew how to do the same thing.
I love the story of Joseph. In Genesis 39 we find the story of Joseph. Joseph had been abused roughly by his brothers and sold into slavery. Eventually God moved him into a position of authority. Then Potipher’s wife decided she wanted a little one on one time with Joseph. However Joseph resisted her charms. Finally one day she grabbed a hold of him and begged him to spend some alone time with her. Joseph, not unlike my bobcat, fled when he perceived the danger!
