A panicked man hides from a big cat peering through the window. He reports his big cat sighting to the authorities.

Big cat sightings are in abundance. Many people claim to have seen these alleged oversize felines in numerous locations where they are thought not to exist.

Within the Otway Ranges in southern Victoria, Australia, there have been many sightings of a large black cat, said to resemble a panther. In lieu of an exotic creature such as a Sasquatch, Chupacabra or Loch Ness Monster, this region will have to make do with a panther.

Kitten KongI opted for a different type of big cat in the cartoon above. A giant domestic black and white cat sporting a blue identity tag, looks through the window of a house, giving one poor occupant a nasty fright. I’m sure it means no harm and just wants a bit of attention but a cat this size would probably have a purr with the effects of an earth tremor.

This reminds me of an episode of The Goodies many years ago that featured a giant kitten, known as Kitten Kong. It was a regular kitten until it was given a growth formula and grew to a huge size, climbing towers and wreaking havoc in London before eventually being reduced back to its normal size.

At first I coloured the cat above as a ginger one. I realised I had drawn ginger cats in the past and wanted to try a different colour / type. I actually think that in this case, a black and white cat looks better than a ginger one. It could be that it appears more sinister.
