    Looks like a domestic cat to me. Though it could be a feral cat, but just a cat.

      Was going to say the same thing.  Domestic cat looking out of a window

      Look up images of bobcats.  They look like large house cats, but are still pretty intensely dangerous.  It's coming into a framed structure that doesn't have any specific window.

    From the shape, size and coloration of the feet, I would say that this is a bobcat.

    I agree with Cynthia. It looks like a cat to me.

    Yes, I would say it's a cat, maybe a big cat.  I do see stripes on it's legs.

    Looks like a cat to me. Compare to my Cici.

    Obviously an armadillo. 

    I must say, when I clicked on the question, I was expecting to see something more exotic. smile

      I like your answer. So did I. Is he joking?

      I love your answer, Jennifer!  I was looking at the window itself.  It is only a frame, no glass, and I don't know where it's coming from.  It could be a forced perspective picture of a house cat to make it look bigger, but it may be a wild cat.

      Not sure.  He is, however, TheHoleStory.  smile

    That is a cougar for sure. I see these all the time out here in Oregon.

      Awesome!  I didn't know if the colors were right for a cougar, but it definitely has the head shape!

      Looking at it one way it looks like it's looking out, at another angel it looks like it's coming in.  Head shape does look like a cougar

    It's a tabby (any domestic cat with a striped pattern on their fur). I have had many cats like this over the years.

    Here's another shot from the very same cam, and this is not a window.
