breed of cat

geneticallymodifiedmemes  asked:

Honestly, my favorite thing about cats is that most of them are cat shaped. You can go to any shelter and pick out a kitten and have a really good idea of what size it will become- unlike a mutt puppy who can shoot up in size or stay tiny. Cats are honestly so great and I'm so glad that the majority of them are just... functional. Honestly, all these designer breeds that effectively cripple cats (eg Scottish folds, twisty cats, etc) are disgusting. Let cats be cats!

Give it time. Humans crave novelty, and unfortunately that doesn’t always mean the best outcome for the cats.

Those eyes…

natgeoVideo by @joelsartore | Palawan leopard cats can be found on Palawan Island in the Philippines. They are about the size of a domestic cat but slightly leaner with distinct black markings on their heads and webbed toes. They’re solitary and spend a lot of their time resting in trees when they aren’t hunting for small mammals, birds and amphibians. They are capable of hybridizing with domestic cats, producing the popular pet breed, bengal cats. Though it’s illegal to hunt leopard cats in many countries including the Philippines, they’re still sold in the pet trade and their parts are distributed for decoration and use traditional ‘medicine’. Leopard cats are wild animals are are absolutely not suitable as household pets.

anonymous asked:

Is Pangur blind or are her eyes just neat?

she’s albino! so, no pigment in her eyes.

the colours you see are structural reflection (blue) overlaying blood vessels (red). b/c her pupils are also red, this give them an unfocused/hazy look.

she’s VERY photophobic (unable to open her eyes in direct sunlight) and I suspect her vision isn’t great, but Pangur can still see.
