The next member of the FFP will complete the 15 genus of Felidae family with at least one member in every of them.  The African golden cat (Profelis aurata) -the only member of profelis genus- reaches up to 1 meter long being a big “small wild cat” distributed over the rainforests of West and Central Africa.

He has lots of different paths with different colors, with and without spots in different parts of the body.  I still don’t know which one I am going to make although this is my most probable election:

One more gorgeous kitty cheers

Only...isn't  she a bit too well fed ?  She almost looks like my Mikke, with blurb under the belly and folds at the neck Laughing

I think it is great with the not-too-clear spots, to distinguish her from Ozelot etc and show the golden fur Very Happy

I think a traditional pattern is always the best choice in a collection like yours.

Knowing a little of taxonomy helps you a lot finding species of certain groups.
Arkive is an excellent website or even Wikipedia. For example, I clicked on "Felidae" in Arkive and it gave me a list of all felides in their page. Click next on bottom of the page to see more:
http://www.arkive.org/explore/species?taxonomy=animalia_chordata_mammalia_carnivora_felidae

I am showing the url once it helps explaining the way. Very Happy

Good point. I think I have to investigate a little bit more to know how the belly of this cat is in the wild life... study study study scratch scratch scratch

I think it is incredible how many beatifull and diferent kinds of cats are all over the world    cat  cat  cat ...and not all of them are related in the Arkive page...they miss a handful of them... scratch scratch scratch

you can find a complete list of species and subspecies here : Mad Mad Mad

Thank you very much Roger sunny

You're welcome Kosta. I gave you that link only to explain how can you find lots of species but as Marat explained, it is a kind of wiki project still not complete. His link is better. Very Happy

They have a huge variation as you said. Though, heavily spotted Golden cats are more common among celi­do­gaster subspecies.
aurata aurata usually have spots on lower flanks or belly.
I would choose this 2nd option with a not very dark reddish-brown to orange color, lighter troat, chest and ventral region, darker external ears, spotted on belly . Face also with some lighter areas and tail is very curious with dark tip and a dorsal line surrounded by dark spots.
Can you put all these details in such a small figure? Seeing what you did before, I am almost sure. Very Happy

Are you going to create Asian golden cat (Pardofelis temminckii) as well?

That´s right. As you can see here, within the Felidae Family Project I intend to make at least a replica of every Felidae specie, including, of course, the beautiful Asian golden cat.

Mgarat, you're really improving with each your new job!
I'm comparing real photo and your sculpture, and so I can say that you could «catch» this cat. Nice job, dear friend! Applause cheers
