Mystery pawprints left by the Beast from the East
Although we live in a suburban area, we have seen (largely Muntjac) deer on occasions making their way across the roads or down the footpaths. We have never seen a deer in our garden.
I peered outside on Saturday and saw these strange prints. Reason tells me they belong to visiting cats, but they have a distinctive hoof print feel about them with that rim around the edge. However, when I looked up deer tracks, they did not seem to match. If they are feline paw prints, I guess the snow must have melted in a particular kind of way. I wonder what you think...

Hi Caroline, it still looks so cold in your environment. The total opposite is here with us.
those are strange prints indeed, Caroline!
What with the 'Beast from the East' and now 'The Pest from the West' ... I'm really looking forward to Spring!
Thanks for sharing these photographs.
All the best Jan
