I'd also say Coyote, the smell can be a quick tip off. Yotes also tend to leave theirs in the open, Cats not so much. Cat scat is usually an assault on my senses, Yote not so much. Maybe I'm somewhat allergic to Cat and It is just me?

Look for some tracks, toenails usually means Canis. Without toenails usually means Felis.

Thank you for the information. That's what I was thinking. Found it in my yard - live on a mountain about 5 miles from town. Neighbors have been reporting bobcat activity in the area so wanted to double check. Knew it was too small for the mountain lion in my yard the other day. Thanks again.

Not only is it too small for Mt lion, it is way too far north and east.

Pretty much all of northern Idaho is consider mountain lion habitat as is much of the rest of the state. A large amount of the 600 mountain lions taken in Idaho in 2016 were taken in the northern part of the state.
