    Is this a Cat or Rat or Alien visitor need help with cooking instructions.

    Not sure what the heck this thing is and if I should shoot it and ask questions later or feed it, or eat it or stay safe
    and go full Independence day nuclear on it.

    But i'ts way too tall for any cat I know, and it’s as bald as a coot, looks more like a drowned rat but just stands looking.
    Can’t be a dog unless it can open locked gates.

    Seems friendly enough but maybe, just maybe we had a rare meteorite known as a carbonaceous chondrite land in the
    next village of Winchcombe last month. Maybe its looking in the wrong place for it.

    Any advise on the make and model of this thing would be helpful.

    I do think its intelligent although it hasn’t make a squeak yet but I was thinking of asking if it had any cheap Apeks Spares
    kits on board and save me the trouble of asking again on this forum. Good chance I might get a better more intelligent response.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Sphinx cat. Ugly as sin aren't they?. Straight out of the old Mummy movies. We have one that wanders through our garden every so often. Makes you shiver.

    Looks a bit like Gollum from Lord of the Rings!

    And they say love is blind. But spot on with that identity it is indeed a Sphinx cat although I thought the poor thing was starving and mange ridden. But thankfully my wife took charge and explained that "she" is our neighbors cat from across the road and called "Molly"

    This is all way above my pay grade as we also have a cat, its white and fluffy and looks like a proper cat and it also has a name but I can never remember it, something unpronounable I call it "Tosh Bag" on a good day its near enough.

    ROFL There are somethings best left not said to the owner of said "Molly".

    Calling the "Thing" Gollum would I fear cross the line.
    Although now that thought is in my head..............I wonder.

    It's owner is a lovely girl, my guess is the cat was a gift.
    She is the daughter of a guitar player in a (very, very) 70's - 80's around that heavy metal rock band.
    Thankfully I think he is now retired as the local bat population appears on the increase.

    It won't need skinning before cooking.
    Paul.
    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    Not enough meat to be worth cooking. Might be easier to swing than the usual domestic fat tabby.

    Does it really matter weight wise as it looks like it was raised on the space station in zero gravity.
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.
