Wonder with wild cats
It’s easy to dismiss these furry felines as a common domestic cat. However, these wild cats have a long, thick coat and comparatively flat face. Due to their tabby-like colouring, wildcats are well-camouflaged against a wooded backdrop. They are usually nocturnal hunters, catching small prey such as rodents, birds and frogs. However, they have been known to feed on larger animals like young deer and rabbits.
As very territorial animals, wildcats will defend their home range and use scent as their primary method of communication to mark their boundaries. Like many other mammal predators, these felines raise their young in dens with rocky outcrops or reuse abandoned fox or badger dens.
