I was awake at 4am today and me and kitty looking out front window. Very dark out there. All of a sudden kitty gets very excited and a very strange cat like creature walks by the windows on sidewalk. Too dark to see details. What I did see is a rather tall cat like shape, long legs, very thin body and the strangest tail that was very long and touched the ground. I don’t know if it was a domestic cat or a wild cat. My neighbor on the upper floor of building saw a creature like that a few days ago and said it was light colored with longish fur on legs. It ran away. We are calling it Ghost cat for now. Any ideas?

:shocked2: Any way to judge its size? The long tail makes my brain jump to cougar. :scared5:

... trying to look it up... Could it be someone's Savannah cat? I don't think they're very common, but they'd sure have long legs!

I contacted the person that feeds the feral cat colonies in the area and asked her to keep an eye out for a lost Sphinx cat. Since they have no fur it’s got to be very cold.
