I was surprised to find several cat tracks on the Lake Creek Trail sidewalk, all on the gummy seams between sections of the sidewalk. This cat must have been walking down the trail before these seams dried out. For scale, my key is 2 inches long.

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.
