“That’s not even a Savannah or a hybrid, it is a domestic tabby of incredibly typical sizing,” the reader said. “Perhaps an individual need to discuss to their neighbors prior to people produce worthless posts about a domestic shorthaired cat that most likely belongs to a person down the road.”
Ouch. That harm. Luckily, not for extensive. As it turns out, numerous other visitors disagreed with that sentiment.

Parks and one particular other reader noticed some thing else about the picture that seems to point out the cat is a pet.
