I’m hoping for help with an ID.
I’ve just returned from a trip to Ecuador. At San Isidro, a private reserve on the eastern Andean slopes (approx. 2000m, cloudforest, nearest towns Baeza and Cossanga) we saw a cat cross the road at
around 19:00 and then hunker down in thick vegetation. It was mostly grey, possibly with some striping and impressions were larger than a domestic cat. Its face didn’t look right for domestic cat. Please see the only photos I could get. The lodge manager insisted on Jaguarundi, but I don’t think so. Could this be a Pampas Cat, something else or just a very strange domestic cat?
Thanks in advance
