I once startled a bobcat who looked at me something like this Sand Cat. Sort of eyeballed me.

It was around dusk and I was looking for my cat; we lived on the edge of a small forest. I saw this orange shape chasing something in the forest and I went up to the edge thinking it was Sandy.

Nope. It was a Cat name Bob. We stared at each other for a few seconds, then it darted into the shadows.

I'm thinking that Bob the Cat was not the type to rub around my ankles!
