I can has naptime? An Irvine man was surprised to discover a baby bobcat asleep under a barbecue on the fourth floor balcony of his apartment in a complex near UC Irvine on Friday, reports KTLA

Police believe the baby bobcat may have climbed a nearby parking structure and then leaped onto the balcony, where it decided to take a snooze. When animal services arrived on the scene, the cat , as cats do, jumped to another balcony. Eventually the adventurous creature was caught and released back into the wild.

And since no dramatic rescue effort is complete without a video, here ya go.
