Not your common domestic Tabby Cat but they do look very similar. Probably the origins of our domesticated cats but slightly larger and lot more attitude and aggression. I am not one who ever likes to see dead animals at all and always say a 'God Bless' everytime I pass a roadkill but i'm realistic and understand that wild cats need to have a natural diet and can't just pop down to Tesco's, especially in the wild. So although I didn't want to show a dead rat it's part of the natural order of things and therefore part of nature. I am sure it will put a lot of people off and hence will not score highly but I think they are such beautiful cats and being shy aren't often seen, even in captivity. I had to wait to the end of the day to get a glimpse or two of this one and the one reason he came out into the open, food. I hope you do like him.
Many thanks for your continued C&C's on my images they are very much appreciated.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.
Steve.

Two nice shots Steve, all part of nature. I like your previous upload of the tiger as well.

Great pair of images, I don't like to see any thing dead either but as you so rightly say it's not for fun but for survival. Wonderful face, looks like it needs a cuddle!

It's nature- whether it's a tiger or just a moggy!
I hate it but having been used to seeing it in the wild realise that it is just , as you say, like us going to the supermarket! ( Prefer V1)
Loved your tiger- thanks for your comments also

A handsome animal and a joy to see. There is a very real sense of wildness to both your images of him and I don't think I would have imagined for a moment this was someone's cuddly tabby! Both really great images.
