Rare views to be sure. I was trying to remember where I had seen those ears depicted before...
And then I got it.

I'm in love.

My dog is going to be jealous.

See you in a couple years. Off to go steal a Sand Cat.
How cruel to keep those adorable kitties caged at the zoo.
They don't look wild at all.

I must go save them......

love the cat world!
although be ultra respectfull and responsible if wanting to be an owner of a 'wild' species.
they tend to adopt to an alpha and maybe a beta person.
they also will often times create a heavy handed rule against your current pet line up.

love these. thanks for posting OP!

(note: I grew up with wolves, as for the alpha comment)

Ive pet several and had close experience with a third of the cats on your list. It was Vogue in the 90's to have an exotic mid sized cat. A friend of mine worked at an exotic pet sanctuary. The no questions asked type. The most people friendly I found were servals (except when around food) and lynx. The lynx was one of the smartest, tough cats out there but rolled on his back and begged for tuna and a belly scratch. Sadly mid sized cats are mostly misunderstood. Some are Real personable another's were not. I have a healthy respect for these animals and a solid disrespect for the people who buy one (mostly illegally) and get rid of them a couple years later due to "being to busy"! OK I'm off my soapbox...

I read "fields". This is still very cool, possibly better.
Thanks OP. I only knew of a few of those.

Very cool cats!
The Serval really looks like my F3 Savannah...
You can clearly tell that the Savannah comes from the Serval...
One of our Savannah is an F3 so it's 3 generations down the Serval.
It still has the wild look, wild attitude, and LOTS of energy!

We also have a F5 female... She's more relax but likes to play all the time...

Wow, I bet a lot of us are wishing we could have our own Sand Cat preserves. If I were 20 years younger, richer, and educated sufficiently, I'd love to get a bit of land in a nice hot region and set it up to breed these beauties off of the threatened list.
