:)

I just have to hang up an exchange from one of my local "social network" sites.
Few selected comments are on the pic.
Of course, I had to comment too - me being me.

PS: if this belongs in the coffee house, the Mods will move it I guess.

Some suggested the Savannah.
Others the Bengal.

All I know - there was no bobcat and it was big.
Some darn hybrid I figure.

Not a cat person anymore.
I want a ruthless mice & rabbit hunter - the kids want a kissy-huggy toy (and no mice!)
No deal.
:)

Another day, saw a picture-perfect "tabby" carrying off a vole next to my potato patch.
Just a perfect red cat, like here:

Schumann and Forrest Down are in Virginia Beach. That cat is Rocky, the missing serval from kitty hawk, nc. He went missing back in April and has been seen up in Va Beach. I'm curious as to the date of that post? Google Rocky the serval.

In this case, Schumann and Forrest Down are Dane County WI.
There are many of these streets.

But, who knows how many are servals and their hybrids, and similar hybrids are running around (just like bee hybrids).

in the pic it looks like it has a collar. lost pet is my vote. Now weather those are, or,, should be pets is a whole nuther can of worms. looks young to me as well , a teenager cat, so like 10-11 months or so. IMO not Rocky, girth and sharpness of the spots and ears do not match. Young tiger of some sort.

GG, pretty sure in the comments of the original site they specified - no collar.
So the locals pretty much agreed - the "thing" was feral or maybe a homeless escapee.

For sure, the feral cat population is booming and cross-breeding in ways hard to imagine.
Unsure, if anyone cares to study the cat hybridizing processes going right under our own noses - pretty much why I posted the entire thing.
Cats, just like bees, are prolific breeders and are a good case of a similar phenomenon (a feral, imported animal - doing very well when left to their own devices).
