Pallas Cats - thank you icanhascheezburger @ 11:15 am

Tags: ,

How have I gone so long without knowing about Pallas' Cats? Housecat-sized, but definitely different anatomy - stocky and plushy with round pupils and backset ears. They're like a weird monkey-cat.

I definitely see the monkey in there, but there's also something about walk that suggests "bear" to me. Tiny little cat-bear.

I didn't know about them either.

Coloring on head reminds me of jaguars.
Coloring on tail is like a racoon.

I suspect some cross breeding, "Yeah, just put in a little bit of everything and let's see what we get."

More seriously, they're a very old offshoot on the cat line, which probably explains much of why they look rather like other critters.
