The Cutest Species Of Cat Has Finally Been Found

I have to be honest, I don't know much about cat breeds. I know that some have short hair, some have longer hair, and they have different colors and markings.

Clearly I have some learning to do, because this breed of cat is definitely the cutest cat I've ever seen!

This fancy feline is called a Caracal.

The name comes from the Turkish word "karakulak," meaning "black ear."

It has the cutest pointy ears and pretty tawny brown coat.

They come from the savannah and woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa, and are the largest small cat in Africa.

While these are wild cats, some people do own them domestically, depending on a country's laws.

They were bred for bird hunting, so if you own birds, you might want to think twice!

They're super affectionate and can be trained, but they are quick-footed! They will probably enjoy you chasing them around the house.
