......... what type of cat this is? It's been seen several times over the last couple of weeks in our garden at work. It's domestic cat sized and quite sleek. Don't think it's feral as we got quite close to it this morning and it wasn't bothered. Unfortunately, not close enough to see it's eye colour. I've never seen anything like it before and the only breed I can think of is a lynx point Siamese. Any ideas?

I'm thinking Bengal?

I initially thought Bengal too but I googled it and couldn't find any this pale.

Could be a Bengal.

Could be an ocicat if you live where someone would have a rare cross breed of cat.

More likely to be a Bengal though

Actually now I've looked at pictures it looks more like an ocicat

They are quite pale like the one in the photo

I'd never heard of an Ocicat but now I've googled, yes it does look quite like that. Mind you, if it's a rare breed I can't understand it being allowed to wander. 😿

Might not be too rare as opposed to pricey.

I doubt you can keep an ocicat indoors unless you cat proof your garden though

The Dartmoor Zoo Lynx is still missing!

I would hazard a guess at an Ocicat. Beautiful cats, not that I have been lucky enough to meet one yet

😺 Papergirl. I thought that but I'm a long way from the west country.
