Another big cat sighting...

"Yes my husband saw a Puma sized large black cat on 21st July 2016. It was 8pm and a lovely dry day. I was in the green house reaching to water a tomato plant otherwise I would have seen it too. He suddenly screamed '"cat!" very long and loud which I just took as come and look quickly but was unable to move quick enough. I had no idea. What he saw was a very large cat in the corner of our paddock which he must have spooked as it bounded along the fence line right across to the opposite corner and ran up the diagonal wooden brace on the corner post and over it into the wood beyond. On reflection it explains the tone of his shout being more like an urgent warning cry. I was really sorry to have missed it and hope to see it again. We have both owned several cats and a Weimaraner and a Labrador in the past, so we know the difference. Especially how differently they move. We have warned the neighbours but have yet to report it to the Ashdown Rangers."

Cranbrook big cat sighting

"Yesterday; the 13th July at approximately 7 15am I saw a large black cat. I believe it is what you call a panther.
It was coming from the broad bean field and into a small wooded copse near Rolvenden Layne.
It was about 15 yards from me so I had a good view, although brief. It didn’t appear to be in a hurry and just sloped the short distance into the wood.
I have never seen one before.
I was with my rather slow dog and she had stopped behind me."

Another Thanet big cat sighting....

"I live in Thanet - we have two large fields at the the back of our garden.
Any way I have a very strange sleeping patterns and woke up at 4:50 this morning and went out into the back garden to have a cigarette and couldn't believe my eyes as I saw a large black cat. Initially I thought it was a black Labrador but then noticed its tail was to long and it had a small head, no snout. But only as it disappeared out of my sight I realised that what I was looking at was walking like a cat. Only after it had gone I stupidly realised I should have run indoors and grabbed my camera, but I was so mesmerised watching it."
