Now obviously we believe there are normal f.cattus ie house cats, gone wild which are classified as feral cats.
But..any non indigenous animals are called feral..so ..the unidentified large felids runing around are feral as well.
But...could f.cattus be running around that are sometimes getting mistaken for exotics.
Verismo’s Leonetti Reserve Red called Leo, a Maine Coon who weighs in at 35 pounds and measures 48 inches from nose to tail (Guinness World Records)
Now I cannot verify if this is the exact size in the Guinness World Records because I do not have a copy,but for argument sake we will assume it is.
But here is a clip of a feral cat, that when freshly skinned was a fraction longer,not heavier,than this world record. This was shot in the Victorian High Country.
