Connor received his Bobcat award in Cubs and was so excited about it. He got it the same day as the Pinewood Derby - red letter day for that boy.
His den leader gave us this little poem for the day - couldn't agree with it more!

Bobcats are small wildcats, about 3 feet tall or shorter. Bobcats are hard to find, especially between the hours of 3 to 5 p.m., when it is time to take out the trash, cut the grass or take a bath. They hide behind trees, under beds or behind imaginary tanks or trucks, waiting for the enemy to pass. They feed on hamburgers, hot dogs, tacos, pizzas, cakes and candy and hunt for food wherever they can find it. Bobcats can be found in trees, mud puddles, under leaves, in old rain barrels, on the roof or wherever girls aren't. They can be found as far away as the school playground or as near as the neighbor's yard, pulling the cats tail. The Bobcat's ability to run, jump and hide is legendary. T.V. movies, Walt Disney and John Wayne have been known to be able to lure these wild creatures in close for the catch. Many a mighty and crafty hunter has been foiled in his attempts to tame these strange creatures.
This boy is loving cubs - he is constantly reading his manual and figuring out what he can do and pass off, reminding me daily to sew on badges, etc. This is actually more fun than I thought it would be.
