A pair of the wildcats and their young appear to have taken up residence in the backyard, animal control officials say.
Karen Brown, a nearby resident, said a neighbor came to her door last Wednesday evening and told her there were 'mountain lion cubs' across the street from her Vista Palermo home.
Stepping outside, Brown caught sight of two cats, which turned out to be full-grown bobcats, resting on the back wall of the property.
'They were just lounging there,' Brown said. 'They were literally just lying on the wall looking at us.'"
