what the heck is that?

I was in Banjo Man’s office this morning, just having a little chat before I headed to the workroom for some time on the treadmill, when I saw what I thought was a large dog trotting down the driveway towards the house.

What the heck is that?”  was exactly what I said to Banjo Man.  My second thought:  I’m going to have to deal with a lost big old dog before I get on the treadmill.

We stared out the window.  The black animal looked much bigger than any other fisher we’ve seen and besides, it didn’t move like a fisher.  They lope.  They’re fast.  This animal-walked like a cat and was in no hurry.

“Get the camera!” Banjo Man shrieked, so I put down my coffee mug and raced upstairs to take some pics out the living room window.

The stump on the left is 8″ high.

If this was a house cat, it was the biggest damn house cat I’ve ever seen in my life.

If it was a fisher, it was the most relaxed fisher I’ve ever seen in my life.

If you have any idea what this is, please leave a comment!!!!

    I googled fisher cat since I’ve never seen one. It looks like a fisher cat.
    The legs are perfect fisher cat legs. It looks like it has the rounded ears of a fisher cat, too.
    If it’s slow, it could be ill or rabbid. Watch out!

    Where’s Tony when you need him and his rifle.

    I have seen wild tom cats in Nebraska. They get pretty big.

    /remembering that my Calvin weighed 22 pounds in his hey-day I’d say this is a house cat…however – to be on the safe side, keep any small children and slow older citizens in the house!
