Phantom Cats aren’t really phantoms the way one would think; they are not a ghostly version of cats as demonic cats appear as. Phantom Cats are also known as Alien Big Cats (ABCs), and they are just out of place big cat species. These cats have been seen all around the world in areas that they are not supposed to be seen.

Britain: ABCs have been seen since around the 1960s. “A 15-month survey conducted in 2003-2004 by the British Big Cats Society gave the following regional breakdown, based on 2052 sightings: South West 21%, South East 16%, East Anglia 12%, Scotland 11%, and West Midlands 9%”

Finland: In 1992, from June to August, there was a lion spotted near Ruokolahti. Tracks from the big cat were identified by a biologist and lions are definitely not native to Finland. The lion was never captured.

New Zealand: Since the 1990s, ABCs have been sighted both on the north and south islands of New Zealand. Most often are panther sightings.

The most famous Alien Big Cats are:

  • The Gippsland Phantom Cat
  • Appalachian Black Panthers
  • The Blue Mountain Panther
  • The Beast of Bodmin
Leo: The Lion

Dates: July 23rd - August 22nd

Symbol: The Lion (♌)

Element: Fire

Duality: Masculine

Quality: Fixed

Planet: The Sun

Rules: The Heart/Back


Leo is the 5th astrological sign in the Zodiac. Like the Lion itself, Leos are deeply loyal, social and prideful. This is a playful, confident and optimistic sign. It’s ruling planet, the Sun, gives Leos a radiant personality and aura. Watch out though, they can be very arrogant! Despite the arrogance, they’re also very generous. They don’t mind giving, as long as they get the same affection back. A Fire sign, just like Aries and Sagittarius, Leos are honest and fun. They’re also a Fixed sign, so you can bet that Leos are very hard headed by nature. There’s no way you’re changing their minds. It’s their way or no way.

Conservationist Kevin Richardson, also known as “caster lions,” wanted to make public service announcements for the Protection of the lions on the occasion of the World Day of the lion on August 10 but his furry friend Tau put some of his own observations.

The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary mission is to provide a self-sustaining African carnivore sanctuary for the purposes of wild species preservation through education, awareness and funding, especially pertaining to the rapid decline of large carnivores in Africa due to habitat loss, human-predator conflict, unscrupulous hunting, disease and their illegal trade.

To raise awareness, Kevin has now set up his YouTube Channel ‘LionWhispererTV’. The channel is all about raising awareness about not only the declining numbers of lions, but also how this rapid decrease is happening. By watching these videos, you are directly contributing to our scheme of land acquisition.

Life Is Strange - Theory.

Horoscopes & Roman Mythology.

I have seen a lot of theories regarding on Life is Strange, and I have decided to make a theory about this as I have gathered some useful information. However, I cannot confirm the fact that this is believable, but let’s just move on.

When Max was trying to find the three student files, I took a screenshot of all the files that she found and recorded the birth date of each student, I even added their horoscopes as I knew it might come in handy. Here is what I recorded down:

Victoria Chase - August 14, 1995 (Leo) (Lion)

Max Claufield - September 21, 1995 (Virgo) (Maiden)

Chloe Price - March 11, 1994 (Pisces) (Fish)

Warren Graham - November 20, 1996 (Scorpio) (Scorpion)

Kate Marsh - September 12, 1995 (Virgo) (Maiden)

Rachel Amber - July 22, 1995 (Cancer) (Crab)

Nathan Prescott - August 23/29?, 1995 (Virgo) (Maiden)

As you can see from above, Max, Nathan and Kate have the same horoscope which is Virgo. According to that horoscope, it is the maiden, an Earth sign, ruled by Mercury. After that, I started looking at the Roman mythology and Mercury is the God of Thieves, Commerce and Travellers, he is also the messenger of the Gods. This Roman mythology information pretty much sums up Max and Nathan. For Nathan, it’s self-explanatory. But for Max, she really is like Mercury, because she is using her rewind powers to travel back just to ‘steal’ answers from people, like in the very beginning when she stole Victoria’s answer just to answer the question. In addition, she acts like a messenger or a spy and you know the rest! Yet, Kate is quite confusing as it doesn’t show any to her. So, let’s just put her aside.

Then, I began to focus on Chloe’s horoscope. Her horoscope, Pisces, means the fish, a water sign, ruled by Neptune. Back to the mythology, Neptune is the God of the Sea, you may think that there isn’t anything special about that. But, remember the graffiti that says, “The 7th sign: The sea and sky will turn black and living things die because of it.” I am not sure about the sky. Yet, I predicted that the sea is depicting Chloe. Although, I realised it, I don’t really understand it that much. Nevertheless, I may think that if Max didn’t go to the toilet, Chloe would die and Max wouldn’t be able to rewind, which would cause some people to die. Because, without Max’s rewind power, people like Kate and other would probably die or just get injured.

However, that is just a little theory I made. Thanks to some people who I kind of got inspired by their theories and I am pretty sure there is more evidence about this, but, it’s all I know. And I know that this theory is weird as I was surprise that I added the Roman mythology for this. 

Wowser.

Big cats in the wild are disappearing at an alarming rate. In fact, within our lifetime, lions in the wild could disappear forever. In support of World Lion Day (August 10), we’re raising money to preserve big cats—like lions—and their habitats through National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative.   Your donation, no matter how small, will make a very real difference in the lives of these majestic creatures. From building livestock enclosures to save snow leopards in Nepal to combating lion snaring and poaching in Zambia, the Big Cats Initiative provides on-the-ground conservation and education support to preserve big cat populations worldwide
