It is great but I have a cat that stays around my house a lot that I can not find. He is about 18 to 24 inches tall , fairly dark brown , appears to be heavy with heavy fur , big legs all the way down to the feet . Much larger tan a bob cat but smaller than the mountain lions around here. He has a full length tail but not like the mountain lion. Can you help. I live in southern Oklahoma.
