Heike, your story as I mentioned is at least in my opinion feasible. Not so much that I believe it was an alien, but that your representation is
respectable. It was a good story and you write well. The only anomaly that I would question is how you got such a detailed look at a creature when it
was moving so fast? Here you wrote: "A large black furry or hairy animal was just leaping over the four-foot-tall fence, and I remember distinctly
that it cleared the fence without touching it. It then bounded down the sidewalk and quickly disappeared past the first of the brick buildings behind
So far that is not so descriptive, but here is where either your memory is possibly adding details, or a hoax is possible (not accusing, just making
sure you check your memory well): "It was very heavy bodied, had small rounded ears, and reminded me of a black bear cub more than anything else. I
only saw it from behind and a sort of 3/4 side/back view as it raced off down the street, but it had a heavy, squat body like a bear and a very
rounded rump with no visible tail. The legs seemed shorter and stockier in proportion to the body than a dog's would be, and its overall shape was
totally uncharacteristic of even the heaviest bodied large cat such as a jaguar. The head also was low in front of the body, not held higher than the
shoulders like a dog's is, and if there was a neck it was very short. It ran in the manner of putting both forefeet out and then bringing both hind
feet up to meet the forefeet, and then springing out with the forefeet again."
Now granted, the description is not flamboyantly elaborate, but you have to admit, you made it sound like it took off extremely quickly and you did
make some fairly detailed observations. I'm not saying it is impossible, just giving you my take.
It still sounds very much like a cat to me, especially if it managed to get to the top of the 66" fridge. Felines can definitely reach high distances
if they are hungry, or terrified. As for the temperature, I don't know what might account for that. Even in ghost stories I never understood what
temperature has to do with ghosts.
That said, I don't feel your making it up at least, and that's all I ever ask for. I have never seen any evidence of any kind to believe in
trans-dimensional beings, so if not an alien and not that, then perhaps a normal animal that is alien to your environment, even though you checked on
the zoo, and private owners. What do you think it was?
