As I turned around after a delivery, I see a massive shape burst out from the foliage and land atop the Fence. Damn near jumped out of my skin. We stared at each other for awhile, and I had to remind myself both that I like cats, and that he’s more afraid of me than I am of him.
I’m not sure how well it translates in the pictures, but what a brute. I had a massive 30 pound Maine Coone at one point, and the spotted guy above looked significantly bigglier.
Is this an exotic domesticated breed that costs tens of thousands? An Ocelot? Amur Leopard? This was right on the edge of a heavily forested mountain range.
