This cat is near DFW so it must be a bobcat correct?

Hip bones and base of tail seem more pronounced than usual for a bob, maybe itís just the angle or just a large/old tomcat.

Pretty broad for a bobcat, but hard to get size reference from that picture.

Have a non-cropped picture?

Bobcat

Look at the back of the ears. The black/white is very pronounced.

Mountain lions ears are similar but not as noticeable.

If that is a bobcat it looks like a big wide one. They are surprisingly small - averaging 16-25 pounds and less than 20 inches tall at the shoulder. Or maybe it is just the angle of the picture and/or that hutch is not very high off the ground. It's more likely to be a bobcat though than anything else.

They can get much bigger than that.
Looks like a bobcat to me as well.
