Not a small one! Doesn't have much pendulous skin hanging down underneath but certainly not smooth and sleek like a 2yo either. I think it's a pretty solid cat.

Based on the apparent lack of barring on the front legs, its an adult cat.  Based on build and relative size of the head, I'm guessing an adult female.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
