Nuneaton Alien Big Cat

Cryptoids, Strange Animals


1967 (APPROX.)

My first exposure to the world of “Forteana” was in 1967 as a small child. I remeber the rough date as it occurred around the same time as the Chelsea/Spurs cup final. The tale of a postal worker being attacking by a mysterious “large cat” in the Kerseley area of Nuneaton was the talk of the school. Within a week said “cat” had garnered several more tails and the story had become evermore gruesome in its nature. This was not only my first exposure to Forteana, it was also the first I remeber of a British phenomenon known simply as “ABCs”, Alien Big Cats”, the most famous of which is “The Beast of Bodmin Moor”
