This is the one I've been mentioning:

This bloke had some interesting tales to tell as well. I live in Queensland and I've done a bit of work in Jimboomba. Ride through there sometimes too. I've not seen anything there myself.

Hi Bats

Years ago a friend of mine had a cat that first time I saw it thought it was a smallish dog. It wasn’t so long but did look like a beer keg with legs and had declawed itself trying to climb a tree. :lol:

That picture you had posted was taken like the one duck posted with forced perspective to make it look bigger,

i was tired when i made my reply about monkees size, to clearify what i was trying to babble a house cat can stretch out and look very long well is really that long, say 3ft of better nose to rump.

But Thats different to me than say a maine coon cat who get very big, even not stretched out the first one i met scared me backwards out of a chair, and being it was a sweet cat it had no idea why i freaked,

I agree.   The legs are clearly canine.  So's the tail (too short for a feline)

Here you go...some dog has a cat looking tail.

After this the body looks more dog to me.

Looks like a dig to me too. Is it just a coincidence the pic is just when the head is not visible?

Judging off the cleared path, if it is for vehicles, then it is a bit bigger then a regular domestic cat. 

The tail could be perspective. If the tail is wagging, as dogs are prone to do, then it could look like that swoop at the end.

I have seen a lot of manxes. Sometime the housecats in the mountains breed with bobcats and the kittens generally come out all black, very intelligent and sometimes huge. They generally have bobtails, but i wonder if there are other wild cats in other areas that mix with housecats to make all these mysterious large black cats.

Manx is housecats is a genetic flaw akin to when inbred cats get polydactyly manx can come with other health issues, i have owned 2 healthy manx and one lives down the street, a wild bobcat isnt the same type flaw,

A manx house cat isnt a breed a bobcat is.

Hi Bats

Manx cats originate from the Isle of Man and I have had a couple myself years ago.

I was under the inpression "manx" is the term for a housecat with the genetic disorder of having a tail deformity from shorter to rump butted a condition not a "breed"

Adding:

Perhaps im getting a bit narrow on what i consider a "breed" like Persian or Siamese are cat breeds to me but manx is a variant that any breed could have like having extra toes ( polydactyly )

Hi Bats

I have this wiki link and yes manx cats have been around here for over 50 years since the first one was born but they do breed with other cats and depending on the litter size there can be one or to That was how I got my second one they were going to put it down because they thought there was something wrong with it and took it home.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manx_cat

The Manx cat (/ˈmæŋks/, in earlier times often spelled Manks) is a breed of domestic cat (Felis catus) originating on the Isle of Man, with a naturally occurring mutation that shortens the tail. Many Manx have a small stub of a tail, but Manx cats are best known as being entirely tailless; this is the most distinguishing characteristic of the breed, along with elongated hind legs and a rounded head. Manx cats come in all coat colours and patterns, though all-white specimens are rare, and the coat range of the original stock was more limited. Long-haired variants are sometimes considered a separate breed, the Cymric.

Manx are prized as skilled hunters, and thus have often been sought by farmers with rodent problems, and been a preferred ship's cat breed. They are said to be social, tame and active. An old local term for the cats on their home island is stubbin or rumpy. Manx have been exhibited in cat shows since the 1800s, with the first known breed standard published in 1903.

I saw wiki too but i still have perhaps just a weird personal thing calling the manx i knew and know a "breed", i still see the missing tail not breed specific but rather an affliction any cat could have like extra toes, now if there is a certain criteria that if met makes the that cat a manx okay, is there a "breed" with extra toes.

But still if i have for example seal point siamese with no tail is it considered a "siamese" a "manx" or "siamese-manx" ?
