Cat / dog print

Unread post by thehairyone » Fri Aug 11, 2017 8:42 pm

Hi all , I'm just wondering if this is a cat or dog print , it just looks nothing at all like my dogs print .
Also I realise that the print is a double ( print in print ) where it has stood in its front step with its rear foot
Cheers Greg

Interesting thing about cats is they consistently & neatly place their rear paws neatly into the forepaws print. Makes an interesting trackway.

Greg, I put up a picture of a large cat print a few years ago. The title was "Cat Print". You could search for it if you wish. It was a lot bigger than a house cat paw.
You can get some usefull, basic information on tracks from google.
Or see this.

I've seen a couple of feral cats that were surprisingly large - not so big they were freakish, but big enough to make me do a double take and think "bloody hell!".
