Show us your non-african little cats

I thought it might be nice to have a thread for the small, non-African cats, like leopard cat, jungle cat, south American cats like ocelot, etc. We already have a thread for small African cats, big cats and so on elsewhere, but I had a trawl and couldn't find one for the other smaller cats of the world. So here's one to start, from my recent trip to Borneo:

A great idea...I love the smaller cats! Now if only I had some shots to add to this thread, lol. Hopefully some day :) Meantime, great sighting/shot of the Marbled cat!

Some horrible contribution to this thread as it deserves more species :) 

1. Leopard cat -- Deramakot reserve , Borneo

2. Pallas cat -- Yolyn Am, Gobi gurvansaikhan national park, Mongolia
3. Iberian Lynx -- Andujar Np, Spain

Your travels have yielded such seldom observed species.

 

Very glad to see all three here.

 

I've never encountered any of them, much less photographed them.

 

Thank you!

I love all cats, but on my top three list the eurasian lynx will always be my number one spot :-) Sorry lions and leopards, it`s nothing personal ;-) This is a habituated lynx, in a wildlife-park, that in africa would be like the rehab-parks around the continent. This is taken is during winter as you see.

Great thread idea @kittykat23uk.  Of course, I will have to contribute the Marbled cat we saw in Deramakot, Borneo about a month after your trip. I still love that this is a different cat exhibiting the exact same behavior as yours did..

Here is a blurry Leopard Cat, also from Borneo:

Here is an Ocelot from Belize. Unfortunately, this was one of our first trips to the rain forest and I agreed to see this Ocelot that was attracted by chicken thrown by one of the lodge workers.  In hindsight, I shouldn't have supported this.  Luckily, I have seen other Ocelot since but never have I gotten such a good photo.

Do, Bobcats count as a small cat?  I am assuming they do so I looked through my website and pulled a couple of my favorite images.  I have been lucky enough to see lots of Bobcats.

And, here is one from our yard...

Amazing. Marbled cats are such fantastic wild cats! Well done!

Great photos Alan! And yes, bobcats do count as small cats. Technically, any cat not belonging to the Panthera genus (Lion, tiger, leopard, snow leopard, and jaguar), leaving you 33 cats that all qualify as small cats!

I am a huge wild cat (especially small cat fan, so will be adding a few of my own photos to this thread). Thanks for starting this thread @kittykat23uk!

Thanks so much. The marbled cat shots are not mine, but I agree they are beautiful! Will add my marbled cat shot in the future though :). I run a few small cat photo tours around the wold @safarigirl.se. Happy to tell you more about them. And of course Smilla counts! :D
