Even though they are to be unique in being small, not much is known about their ecology or behavior in the wild. These cats feed on rodents and birds. They also hunt lizards, frogs, and insects.

Last year at a walk through the Eifel-National-Park I had the lucky opportunity to watch a wild cat going to have a sun-bath at a clearing, while I was quietly taking a break. Later I met a Ranger and told him about it. He said he would envy me, because in all his years he had never been able to see one - I had to tell him exactly where I saw the cat.

"only 36 of them worldwide"

I hope they can survive as a species. Beautiful animal.
Thank you.
