Cat Fact - The Smallest Wildcat

Did you know the Black-footed cat, also called small-spotted cat, is the smallest wildcat today. Females may only weigh 1.2 kg (2.5 lbs) and be less than than 50 cm inches (20 cm) long.

Surprisingly, they are deadly too. As they live in dry conditions in Southwestern South Africa, they have to be tough. According to a BBC study they have a 60% kill rate and have been know to jump and snatch low flying birds.

Don't believe me. Watch this short video.
