We have an update to reports that a dangerous cat is on the prowl in Baytown. Animal Control officers say it's not an ocelot, just a good sized domestic short-haired cat. Animal Control officers got some photos of it Wednesday morning. The cat does have some unusual markings. Neighbors say they have seen the animal attacking pets.

"He had his claws in his back and my cat had blood all over his ears," said Baytown resident Krystal Newman.

"I got a little boy and he's scared," added Baytown resident Kerry Lee Johnson. "He comes running in the house said, "Daddy, it's a big old cat out there chasing me.'"

We're told Animal Control officers will continue their efforts to try to trap the cat.
