Bobcats move into foreclosed home

Bobcats move into foreclosed homeA foreclosed home in the San Fernando Valley is now occupied by a pair of wild bobcats and their kittens… this story reminded me of the dystopian sci-fi writings of J.G. Ballard, who vividly describes our civilized environments as they are reclaimed by the natural world. Check out The Drowned World and The Best Short Stories of J.G. Ballard. For some reason many of his best book are out of print at the moment, but as our planet melts readers will rediscover this genius, and, sadly, realize just how prescient he was.
