Non-native cats is a discussion list moderated by George Markie, Chris Smith, John Murray, and Phil Crosby. non-nativecats is a friendly and helpful forum where everybody is encouraged to participate and exchange sightings of bigcats and their theories on these animals. The members of this group come from a variety of different backgrounds and have many different theories about the origins and nature of the cats. This is a strength rather than a weakness and has resulted in an extremely positive exchange of ideas.
Non-native cats does not aim to be the biggest or the best cat mailing list, but we do try to be the friendliest.
Information exchange is the name of the game and the closed shop mentality is discouraged.
If you are a serious big cat researcher or if you simply wish to learn more about these mysterious animals we'd be happy to have you with us.
NB. Information concerning other exotic animals can be sent to the UK exotics group while reports of wildcats should be sent to the Scottish wildcat discussion list.
