This big kitty has Victoria talking...

This footage was recently shared with the Australian Animal Folklore collection at the University of Ballarat, curated by Dr David Waldron.

The man who filmed the cats thought it could go some way to explaining the source of the many large black cats seen in the Ballarat district of Victoria. He estimated the cats were more than two feet long in body length.

The man said the cats had given him a scare a couple of times at night on his property and near where he keep his chooks. The film shows some slightly larger than average feral cats.

A couple of interesting features in the film though regarding the social behaviour of the two adults and the single kitten and the fact that all are black, despite it being a rarer colour for feral cats in Australia.
