The Lynx of Casterbridge?

Thomas Hardy would be amused.

His Victorian villa on the outskirts of Dorchester is not only attracting tourists but now, apparently, a big cat as well.

Max Gate, where Hardy wrote Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Jude the Obscure and The Mayor of Casterbridge has become the latest location to be noted in the Dorset Echo's big cat diary.

A Dorchester resident told police he saw a tabby cat "the size of a large Labrador with pointed ears" in Allington Avenue late at night.
