It is suspected he is an escaped mental health patient. A truly bizarre video has emerged online showing the legendary “cat-man” who had previously only been sighted by individual people and thus people relied on word of mouth to learn about him.
Man who behaves like a cat in Scotland has been filmed for the first time. Previously, people relied on sightings and word of mouth. The cat-man crawls and eats rats and his eyes glow in the dark, just like cats
The man is covered in what appears to be dark soot. His eyes glow in the dark, and he crawls and eats such things as raw rats—just like cats.
Due to his physical attributes, the cat-man scares people who come across him.
He was first sighted in the 1970s in Greenock, Scotland, and his legend spread widely, making people watchful and fearful of him.
People around Scotland are amazed that he is able to survive away from society, in the cold climate, and on a diet that appears to rely on rats.
It is thought that the man might have been assaulted when he was younger, thus taking away his ability to walk. For some, he is simply an escaped mental health patient.
Some concerned people bring him food, drink, and clothing when they encounter him. Some even take pictures with him.
