Identification of Animal Scat

Asked July 30, 2014, 12:29 PM EDT

I live in central texas near Stillhouse Hollow Lake. I am trying to identify the scat that was found in my back yard because an outside cat vanished the night the scat appeared. Coyotes are in the area and cougars have been seen (rarely, but once one was observed in my front yard). The back yard is fenced but it is a low wrought iron fence. Dogs would not be able to get in (and none roam the area) but a cougar could easily jump the fence and a coyote could probably fit between the bars. Any help you could provide would be appreciated.
