This road kill has me a bit puzzled. The dark flecks in the brown fur seem to rule our a hare, it seems too big for a stoat, and the only other obvious option is a ginger house cat.

I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Found this track in a concrete sidewalk. Don't know when it was made but it was several years ago for sure.

This cat was stalking some quail. I'm not sure it was technically feral, but it wasn't wearing a collar.

Description from Wikipedia

The domestic cat (Felis catus or Felis silvestris catus) is a small, usually furry, domesticated, and carnivorous mammal. It is often called the housecat when kept as an indoor pet, or simply the cat when there is no need to distinguish it from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and their ability to hunt vermin and household pests.
