Westchester NY Big Cats

I live in the suburbs of Northern Westchester, and my property adjoins Blue Mountain Reservation. I saw two big black cat sightings in the past few months, as well as a mountain lion or cougar on my driveway. The big black cats looked like black panthers. One was walking into the forest; the other was running with some kind of either prey in it’s mouth or maybe it was an offspring of this cat. There was no mistaking it was a huge cat. I have also seen black bears but it was much more like a cat. I was astounded, and very curious about what this was. I looked it up and from what I gathered, it was a fisher cat, which is not a cat after all, but it’s body looks like one. Dangerous and vicious.
