    Just wondering, if they can breed with house cats. If so, how endangered are the original specie? And shall we let them do it, because it might bring bio diversity in these time of climate changes.

    As a person who started studying felids at age 12 I am absolutely in love with these videos. You showcase all the rarest and least known cats on planet (all my favourite ones :D) I want to thank you very much and show appreciation for your hard work. Many of these animals are not really well documented because of how rare/elusive they are yet you manage to tell so much about them. Instant subscription. Much love

    Whenever I see this kind of feline on documentaries I always think "oh, poor thing, alone in the wild, I must give it a home" but I know that they belong in nature. Doesn't make it any less hard, though.

    So, how closely related to house cats are these guys? Part of me suspects they're just the descendants of house cats brought over by the Spanish... But I wouldn't be surprised to learn their closest relatives are jaguars either.

    FACTS: Biden has a credible sexual assault accuser, a person who was on his campaign and has collaborators, leftists recognize it: Will still vote for him. FACTS: Biden is blatantly racist in both past AND present: Dems will still vote for him and claim him the better option. FACTS: Biden is on video groping woman and kids, making out with his granddaughter and Democrats claim to be against pedophilia and people like Epstein and others that grope women like that Hollywood creep: Dems will still vote for him and claim he is the best option.
