"Driving home last night from work, Monday 3rd April, was just before midnight.
I had just driven out of Charing, near Ashford on the a252 and taken the left turn/fork onto the faversham road.
Just after taking the turn I saw a large black cat at the edge of the road. Was about the size of Labrador, with orange/yellow eyes and a long tail. It had a very dark shiny coat reflecting in my head lights and was just stood staring at the car as I drove past."
