Thanks for the info. I am glad to hear they are doing everything so that mom won't eat the baby. This is a beautiful animal.

I do not agree with breeding programs. This cat is tiny, can you imagine forcing male to mate with her? Maybe I am misunderstanding the term 'breeding.'

The world's first conservation captive breeding programme for the Indian rusty-spotted cat, the world's smallest wild cat species, is set to begin at Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) in Borivali. This would be a good thing, as so little is known about these little cats in the wild.
Thanks for sharing Cher.
