Chinese Mountain Cat

Also known as the Chinese desert cat, or Chinese steppe cat, is a vulnerable species that lives in China. Only around 10,000 of them live in the wild. It is significantly different to wild cats around the world.

This cat lives on the North-Western edge of the Tibetan plateau, is active at night (nocturnal) and specializes on eating pIkas rodents and birds. There have been recurring attempts to greatly reduce the Pika population through poisening, which has obviously impacted a species that relies (at least in part subsists on eating Pikas)
