Have pics of bobcat scat?

Found scat I have an idea maybe cat but not 100%.Looks like 4 scat pellets stuck together and white with hair and mouse bones in it.Cat season is done here but just wanted to know.

That's what it looks like...What is the time frame for it to turn white?

I hear about cat toilets...is there a general location for them or whereever the cats decide to make them?

It does sound like cat.I'm not sure the exact time frame but it doesn't take as long as you may think,depending on weather.Don't discount old droppings.Exposed droppings are supposed to have a lot of significance and they may not freshen that spot unless the white ones are removed.In areas where cats are very thick,they may mark constantly.Areas where they are more spread out,not nearly as much.Finding cat droppings is always a god thing.

not to hijack..but since were on the topic.....are either of these cat turds??



there were several piles of these on a seldomly used ATV trail..that white stuff appeared to be a cotton like mold?




this was found here..(its in the bottom right of the pic...)




cat looking spot...thought i had fresh cat tracks in the snow that day in that general area but couldnt be 100% sure..too big to be a fox and it was walking logs and rocks..

Buzzard is right....tootsie roll (like) segmented , bone fragments, hair....they bleach out rather quickly in many areas.
