Back to reality
yes I've seen a "big cat" dunno what it was, but it weren't a domestic pussy cat. I had to stop & let it stroll across the road in front of me one morning around 6am on the Stocksbridge by pass (A616) I called in at the local nick & reported it & the Bobby on duty (yes a real copper in a real police station, how quaint) His reply was "Oh aye! we know about that, it's been reported loads of times, thanks anyway"
The beast I saw was about the size of a large dog & mousy blond in colour with a long tail.
