*Footnote: I got to see this cat twice. I was traveling down a gravel road looking for a farm house I'd never been to. The first time I saw the cat it came through the fence line, not running, just slowly walked out into the middle of the road and stood there. I got within 50 feet of it (slowing way down). Basically it was as big as a Great Dane. Because when I first saw it come through the fence, that's what I thought it was. As I approached, I realized it was a cat and then, of course, got real close and confirmed that. It wasn't scared of me and and my car. It let me get close and then just walked off through the east fence line. I went about half a mile south and realized that I had missed the house and turned around. And the cat did the same thing, walked back out of the fence line into the middle of the road and just stood there. I got about as close the second time as I did the first time and then it walked on to the west.
It had a long thick rope tail like an african lioness or a puma but it was mottled like a bobcat. I don't remember what it's ears were like. But I would think if they were distinctively bobcatish I would recall that so I tend to believe they were not.
