Another night

We had a cool cat stroll past the camera trap the other night. It's a Genet, Genetta genetta. Not really a cat, but very cat-like.

Look for the eyes, to the right

According to Wikipedia, the common genet was brought from the Maghreb to south west Europe as a domestic animal about 1000 to 1500 years ago. The genet is evidence of the phrase sometimes used here - 'Africa ends at the Pyrenees.'
