    It snowed a couple of days ago and I found some footprints I did not recognise. The prints are divided into two parts: toes and what I think is either the pad of the foot or maybe the back foot. It has four toes that are spread out a bit - it's not a paw-like foot at all. Tiny claw marks are somewhat visible. The prints are a little bigger than a house cat's prints. Does anyone have any guesses? I took pictures but can't get them to upload right now. I will try again later.

    I might be able to help if a get a picture. You could look up footprint identification. There will probably be some good websites.

    If it's a little bigger than a normal cat it could be a bobcat.
