Illustration Friday - Mysterious

Alana had heard the stories of the mysterious big black cats that had been terrorising towns and taking cattle but when this little fella rocked up on her doorstep she was sure he was just an ordinary kitty... wasn't he?

There have long been tales of mysterious big cats roaming Australian bushland with stories of escaped zoo animals or freed mascots that had gone out and bred with the feral cats in the wild. There is even talk of the big cats being ferrals and that have genetically engineered themselves over time to be bigger and stronger to deal with a life in the wild.
Whatever they are, I've seen one, years ago, out with my brother and cousins and a friend on a farm, we all saw it and all were stunned and amazed at the size and speed of the animal we saw. All we do know is that it wasn't a domestic cat.

Seems lots of people have seen them. Here are a few links about the mysterious big cats. Fact or fiction, you decide! (fast forward past the football)


  1. Very mysterious! I would love to see one of these "big cats," but this little one is fine, for now! :o)

  2. Thank you! Sweet drawing and the YouTube footage makes it even more 'mysterious' ;-) Haven't made my entry for IF Mysterious yet, planning to do so today!

  3. Wow, that's pretty cool, I learned something new today. I do love your little black kitten, I hope it stays that way!

  4. Very interesting! Your black cat looks much cuter and tamer. :)

  5. Great! The hand holding him is so nice, as well as the rest. Hope you're feeling better. :)


Thanks for visiting. Have a nice day!
