Last month we mentioned some photos of a mountain lion treed on a saguaro. Well apparently cats must have more of an affinity for cacti than originally presumed. has a story and a slideshow of a bobcat that was photographed perched on top of a giant cactus.

Photographer Curt Fonger captured some great images of a bobcat that climbed a saguaro Tuesday. Fonger's friend says the bobcat ran through the grounds at Smiling Dog Landscape in Gold Canyon. A mountain lion was running after the bobcat, probably looking for breakfast.

That is a crazy story and even some better pictures.  I would love to see how he got up there, but I think it would have been almost better to see how he got down from there.

This is funny, my local news did a story on this tonight, seems pretty cool, the story was the bobcat was being chased by a cougar and high tailed it up the cactus. glad omeone got it on camera. it would be nice to have a picture of the coigar actually chaseing the bobcat up the cactus

It's difficult to tell how

It's difficult to tell how tall that cactus is, but I'd guess somewhere around 30 feet. It not only loks like a good place to seek refuge from a bigger cat, but also a good place to sit while looking for lunch!
