big cat research in Sussex


Fur found at Seaford was domestic cat

Posted on March 21, 2012 at 6:15 AM

The fur found at the Seaford "big cat" sighting last month was microscopically analysed and proved to be domestic cat(Felis catus) in origin.Although this sort of analysis is by no means conclusive we have to respect the findings by a trusted scientific source.Of course DNA testing would of been better and more undeniable but the differences between the fur of Felix the cat and that of a black leopard (what would of been wanted by some)is rather striking and easily noticed under the most basic of microscope kit.I had nothing to do with the investigation or either the evidence collection nor the analysis.I have not been informed of the results directly but knowing human nature silence is golden when embarrassment occurs but i have been told that is the word on the big cat research grapevine.We are now left with 3 likely possible theories of the type of cat that was in that house.The first is that the culprit was indeed a large house cat that was very scared and lost.I agree that this is the most likely given the evidence made available,why on earth would a wild big cat venture indoors with all the danger that that incurs,why also was the creature so hiding quietly in the house for many hours when human activity went on all around it.Very hard to believe(i didn,t know this when i first published the news on this website)The 2nd is that it was a feral cat albeit very large but still Felis catus that had taken a wrong turn in it,s search for food in that very cold spell at the time and this would account for the very scaredy cat nature of it,s actions.Now the third and i know this is very hard to believe but that this cat that was there was truly a big cat in size with 5.5cm wide paw prints as left in the snow outside.Yes ,snow prints are very hazy to determine but the Telscombe big cat as we call it has paws this size,she,if it,s a she, is also around 20"tall (the size of a labrador) is stocky with an extra long,bushy tail and has green eyes.Admittedly ,apart from the extreme size of this big cat the other more noticeable feature is the length and bushyness of it,s tail and this wasn,t mentioned by the witnesses in the house at the time.I have found that if witnesses do not mention these peculiarities of the tail when reporting their sightings then other outstanding facets describing a big cat would have to be included to give credibility to their statements,so obvious is this feature which sets apart British big cats from misidentification with other species.Anyhow,the evidence is undeniable,the cat in the house was domestic cat in origin but what if a lot of the varying in type big cats that roam about quite literally sometimes among us are actually over sized and naturalised domestic cats that have adapted to living in Britain,are of a size that enables them to better survive the rigours that come with it and have formed,over many,many generations a far longer tail that is more suitable to their requirements.This fascinating topic has been the subject of many blog articles of mine in the past and is way overdue in being updated as is my presentation of past evidence gathered to support this outlandish theory of mine however for now i have to go with the science and the most likely theory of exactly what type of species the Seaford cat was and that was Felis catus,someones poor,scared house cat that simply had got lost and in the witnesses understandeable fright made it out to be far larger than it actually was.To prove this reasonably conclusively to me though i would like 24carot sightings backed up with hard evidence in the form of good quality paw prints or whatever that gave the Telscombe big cat proof that it was somewhere else at the time.....
