    Yeah, I think so too..
    I'm guessing it's probably normal for a cats to have a 90% DNA match with other species.

    It is. But a 90% match is pretty far off. Humans share something like 70% of their DNA with tomatoes, or something ridiculous like that, so matching a species has to be pretty exact.

    But humans are closer to chimps than domestic cats are to pumas, so that makes sense.

    Told ya's.

    However, it is getting the point that these things will be classified as a seperate species of big cat in the not to distant future. The Australian Wild Cat will be a techincal species of animal I'm afraid.:(

    :lol:

    Seriously though, I"m still skeptical. "described as bigger than a German shepherd dog", for example. It's like when people say they have a huge spider or snake in their house.... And usually it's just a small animal, no bigger than normal. People love a bit of exaggeration.

    Said it before and I will say it again. I saw a big arse cat in Creswick (just out of Ballarat) a few years ago. Not claiming it was a panther or a puma or anything, but if it was a feral cat, it was damn fucking huge for a feral cat.

    Sure is. My ex's parents live there. They fit in well, though.

    My family hails from Daylesford. ('ceptin of course the ones from Ararat).

    was down there in April, and the place has surely changed some.

    Is still a really nice area though. Would be a cool place to retire to.
