    That's a house cat. There's really a debate?

    Seriously? It's tiny. It's a damn house cat.

    Here is the HD photo. It’s not in video mode and the camera is up the tree for security purposes. This is best I can manage with the file size limits we’ve got.

    That's much better. I would start setting some cat food and water out for it each evening, taking it back up directly before retiring, and placing a camera on the bowls; plus, I would name him Bobboo.

    I've deleted video off my Blink camera on my porch of a similar picture. Same looking stub tailed black cat on my porch....in my subdivision!
    It's just a cat.

    Wish I had a daylight pic of a cat to compare. But there is very clearly a huge size difference between these other two cats.

    That cat doesn't appear to be small and has an elongated stance. Another option is to set a few inverted painter's buckets, maybe three, spread out around the tree, for a more accurate height on the cat, but you will have to place a camera at their level, for true perspective. Place three on their sides, as well, for length measurement. I think the cat may be longer than the buckets, but it will give you a better estimate.

    DD, set a live trap out with some sardines. If it's a kitty cat, you'll catch it quickly.

    The skunk and the black and white house cat in the other picture. I don't see any doubt that it's a common cat.
