A mother bobcat and her kittens have been spotted wandering through a Calgary, Alberta, neighborhood all summer - and apparently the little family is getting really bold.

Local resident Katherine Reiffenstein was shocked to see the four cats standing right on her doorstep last week, casually peering in through the glass door.

While the bobcat family is admittedly adorable, their proximity has some residents concerned. But Alberta Fish and Wildlife officials say there's no need to be worried, the mama and her kittens are just looking for food and water.
