    So I just saw this really fat large cat walking around my barn with a bobbed tail...It was dark grey though. I saw the bobbed tail...Is there another cat that has a bobbed tail? Maybe this one had it lopped off. Can bobcats be fat and dark grey? *laughs*

    Edited to add...It was walking away from me so couldn't see the face, just the body coloring and the bobbed tail.

    Thanks centrarchid. I googled and found that Manx cat after posting but this cat had more of a tail than the Manx but I'm thinking that's probably what it is but how did a special breed of cat get outside in the wilderness in coon country. This thing was really wide like it had been eating like a king. I'm hoping it walked past my trail cam and I will check before I head off to work. It would be more logical to see a bobcat than someone's registered cat.
