I think that compari with the width of the door and size of the bricks show that is a fairly average sized cat.
All I have to say is "These cats are small. Those cats are Far Away."Something odd spotted in Cambridge, England.

The 'big cat' has been compared to the size of a fully grown Labrador dog.
Even easier to tell from the size of the fence behind it. Keeping in mind that the fence is on the opposite side of the road from the cat, and seems to be a standard kind of low fence, that cat is positively tiny by comparison.It’s probably easier to work out using the scale of the bricks. A standard brick is just under 9 inches. Measuring from the photo ( admittedly not entirely accurate) the door and door frame measures at 4.2 feet.
Hopefully, there'll be an update to this story. As always, it's difficult to tell, though the cat does seem to have a peculiar shape to it and from what I can tell, rather large feet (though that may just be fur).Difficult to gauge the exact size from that picture, but it does look to be a fair bigger than the average household moggie.
Standard bricks are 9" (230mm) long. That cat is a couple of bricks long, plus its tail. Quite a tall tale for such a short cat.All I have to say is "These cats are small. Those cats are Far Away."
Size of a fully grown labrador dog my arse. It's a cat on quite a small shed. What exactly is the confusion?!
I looked it up. There was an ABC sighting that was filmed in Cambridgeshire in 1994 which was named "the Fen Tiger" by the media.Incidentaly, Fen Tigers are not cats........
That stance says "dog" to me.From The Sun....

He's been referred to as Australia's very own Tiger King, but apart from his surname, Vaughan King doesn't have much in common with Joe Exotic.
The Netflix show's star and the former WA boy both have a thing for big cats and, from May 5 when King appears in a new Discovery Channel documentary, both will be on television screens.
That, though, is where any similarity ends.
"I've only seen two episodes of the show, and it gave me the weirdest nightmares," King said.
"The guy's a crazy cat, but people can call me whatever they want. It's quite funny."
King, who grew up in Perth's southern suburbs before heading east to work with Steve Irwin at Australia Zoo, stars in The Hunt: In Search of Australia's Big Cats which debuts next week.
And while he won't give too much away, the professional big cat handler and researcher said the show was "compelling", and included footage of mysterious sightings collected from around the country, including Western Australia.

Juliet Simpson, who made the lifesize sculpture 20 years ago, was first alerted to the situation when a neighbour rang saying police were following up reports of a wild cat near her house in the village of Underriver.
