Roof scat

Asked January 12, 2019, 1:35 AM EST

I was on the roof of our house and spied this scat. I thought that it may be from a large cat but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated!

The roof scat is likely from a cat - It's possible that you could get raccoon scat that would be up there, but unlikely because raccoons tend to use centralized "latrines" near their dens. The other argument for this being cat scat is that, although I can't zoom in really close to examine potential contents, the contents seem fairly uniform, like we'd expect from a kibble/can-fed animal.

Thank you Dana!
