Driving home this evening at 5:00 I was traveling up Creamery Hill Road from Rt. 189 and saw a large cat cross the road ahead of me. It was light brown/fawn in color, approximately 3-3 1/2 feet tall, long and slender and nibble on its feet as she ran across the road. She was crossing between two fields surrounded by trees and wetlands and went into the woods. She crossed, heading in the direction of the pond and woods behind my house, so when I arrived home, and for ha-ha's, I stood by the window off the back of our house to see if by chance she would reappear. Within 7-8 minutes of watching, there she was again. She sauntered, in no particular hurry, out of the woods, across the opening next to the pond in my back yard, and reentered the woods on the other side. I have never seen a cat that large. I honestly thought, when she ran across the road, and as I watched her cross the opening in my back yard, that I was looking at a female lion - only a bit slimmer/longer. It was wonderful. I thought she had a short tail, but she may have been holding it down; I can't be certain.
