Hello bhupendra. When photos are not definitive, the descriptive text is extremely useful and can add non visual details. Your cat has blood red tufts between black tufts on each segment. See the EOL link.
The second link has red-brown tufts without the black tufts. The second species is not recorded in Victoria. I have grown them out and the moth is without the black stripe and thereby confirmed T. sparshalli.

Hi Martin
These two pages on the same website are suggesting slightly different species. I can't see any difference between them.
