Thanks for your input on this output. Size is difficult to gauge in a picture like this without any scale, but I've never seen cat litter this large. Based on a Google image search, I'm still inclined to think raccoon. (Maybe I just don't want it to be skunk!)

Not when they think they own your garden - then they leave it out as a territorial warning to other cats. And definitely the neighbour's cats, frequently see them in the process of depositing it . . . yukk!
I guess raccoon too. I have the same black mess in my yard.
All the outdoor cats around here leave their's uncovered. They aren't my cats either, and I too see them from the window. Plus their's is often on the runny side. At least now I know why they don't cover it.
I was gifted with two more raccoon plops. One with corn, so he came from the elevator across the street :o) This is the second time and it's in almost the same place as the first. He's got a road going thru my yard, LOL!
Depends on the size... it looks like it has hair in it... so it is a meat eater. I have seen cougar scat that looks like that... don't know if you have coyotes, but it is a lot like cougar scat only smaller. Raccoon is just slightly larger than a domestic cats.
Hope some of this helps. I am not familiar with all of the wildlife in Fl.
