Wild 'Sand Cat' of Israel

Sand Cat (Felis margarita)
Who doesn't love an absolutely adorable cat, right? This is the Internet, after all, so I would be crazy not to include Israel's precious Sand Cat in this list. Also known as the Sand Dune Cat, it's the only member of the family of cats that actually lives in the desert, but it doesn't look all that different from most domesticated cats. Its fur is a sandy brownish and it sometimes features darker stripes or spots. Just look at that face!

How interesting and that cat has a nice face looks like the eyes are more closer together.

Have a sandcattastic weekend :-)

Such a sweetheart! Aren't these the ancestors of our domesticated cats?

Never heard of this kind of cat before. Good looking cat, though.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday. ☺
