I had been out behind the casita putting out clean water for the animals and I took my trail cam in to the house to change batteries and the memory card. In those few minutes I was in the house, a squadron of 8 or 9 (9 I think) javelina showed up out back and some were relaxing while others got a drink. They slowly follow my back yard fence to the other side of the house while grazing. From there, some headed out my driveway while others hung around for a while. Two came up to the screen door to visit Blaze (it could have been the same one twice, not sure). Blaze took a swipe at one of them, and that javelina made an aggressive head movement at Blaze, and the Wonder Cat was gone!!! It is pretty cool how you can just be doing some mundane thing like changing batteries in a camera, and it can turn in to wildlife encounter. I sure enjoyed the visit by the javelina, I hope you do too!!!

FYI, today is my wife Jan's birthday. I wish her a very happy birthday!!!

Great video! The one who had the "interaction" with Blaze looked like his fur was standing up. So funny how he was waiting outside the door the way a dog does when he's ready to come inside. Happy B-day to Jan.

Thanks for watching JD_MD! You called it! It did look like a dog waiting to come inside. Blaze is extremely tough behind a metal screen door, but he would run for the hills if the javelina actually came in the house. His favorite place to hide is behind the entertainment center. I am glad you enjoyed the video. Thanks for the birthday wishes for Jan, I will pass them along to her.

Again, thank you for sharing! Lately, I've been forwarding the links for your videos to my husband. He, too, enjoys watching them as much as I do. The young one that came to your door was not only curious but unafraid. Blaze reacted just like one would expect a cat to react

Happy Birthday to your wife, Jan!

I do appreciate you and your husband watching my videos and I am glad you both enjoy them! Yes, the young one that came to the door was very curious. They generally display any fear unless there is a sudden movement or a loud noise. I do not do things to scare them, I am sure there are plenty of scary things they have to deal with out in the washes and open desert. As for Blaze, well, he just does Blaze and does it very well!!!
