After a few minutes, the little lynx scuttled off Newton's deck and into his yard. He thought that playtime must be over — though it really had only just begun. Watching out from his screen door, Newton heard the kitten's mother mewing from the grass. Then, one by one, all seven of her kids filed back onto his deck with her following suit.
"I’ve never seen so many lynx," Newton said. "To see all these lynx on my deck, I was gobsmacked."
Obscured behind the screen, the lynx apparently didn't notice him snapping their photo. At one point, they all lingered together long enough for Newton to take a perfect family portrait.
