This is a cat I saw last summer near our house in Delaware county. It had no spots and a longer tail than a bobcat. I managed to get the following pictures. (The second two are just zoomed in versions of the first two)

What nice bobcat pictures! Very Happy Cool Cool
The typical white patch on the back of the ear and the short tail tipped in white are all bobcat markings. Many NY bobcats do not have spots. Their tails can vary in length also.
A cougar would have a really thick tail that would be long enough to drag on the ground if it didn't curl up at the end.

Excellent pictures Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation
