Fishing cats are increasingly rare. New estimates suggest only about 2,500-3,000 remain in the wild. It is only in recent years that scientists have started to gain a better understanding of where these small wildcats live or what's happening to them.

I'm so glad to hear about someone who doesn't want to destroy the cats, but seems interested in learning to live in harmony with them. That's the sort of farmer we need to support as much as possible.

These small fishing cats are so interesting. Loved seeing the videos. It is always nice to hear of a farmer. even though his traps were raided, wanting to learn more about the cats that are so rare and live harmoniously with them.
Thank You Cher.

I sure hope these gorgeous cats remain elusive so man can't get their nasty claws on them. Great vid-thx Cher
