Meet the Rusty-spotted cat, one of the smallest members of the wild cat family. It’s commonly known as the “hummingbird of the cat family,” which is too adorable for words.
Located in India, Shi Lanka, and Nepal, the tiny feline is 14-19 inches in length (with another 6-12 inches of tail) and weighs only 2-3.5 pounds. Oh, and this may look like a kitten, but it’s actually a fully grown adult.
There are roughly 10,000 of these little guys frolicking around the wild today. Unfortunately, this makes it a vulnerable species, according to the IUCN.
They live in dry forests, scrub, and grasslands. Not much is known about their lifespan. One thing we know for certain is they are absolutely precious!
