Cat droppings 5 500x500

Cat dropping with ruler for size.

Cat droppings can be left in conspicuous locations like on top of a clump of grass.  Droppings are made up of three to six round, elongated segments that are dark in colour, not white and chalky.  These scats were found on Stewart Island and contained rat fur.
