A family of bobcats has apparently moved into a vacant house in Lake Elsinore, proving that speculators aren't the only ones pouncing on good deals.

Residents of the upscale Tuscany Hills community first spotted the squatters last week sitting atop a wall outside the Spanish-style house.

There are at least two adults and three kittens.

Neighbors say the house has been empty at least six months.

Monique Middleton of Animal Friends of the Valley, which provides animal-control services, says she expects the bobcats to move on in a few weeks when the kittens are old enough to travel.
