At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

The Kellas cat was discovered in Scotland some years ago, when one was caught in a trap.  Basically, it was black in color and is supposed to bee descended from crossbreeding of domestic cats with the Scottish wildcat.

A similar mystery black cat has been reported from North Carolina.  Whether it too is the descendants of domestic cats and some wilder member of the cat family or whether the sightings are just due to misidentification remains to be seen.

These photographs of Duke Forest, North Carolina, were supplied by D.R. Shoop.
