The Wildcat is going to be the 33th member of the Felidae Family for the FPP project. Someone can think it is a very common cat with no interest at all, but I think it is really a very attractive feline if you observe it attentively.

The wildcat shows a high degree of geographic variation from Africa, Europe, and Southwest and Central Asia into India, western China, and Mongolia. For my model I have chosen the european variation which in my opinion is the most beautiful one.

For cat lovers this is perhaps the most interesting one, as the African subspecies is the ancestor of the tame cat cat Applause

I think main companies think like that. When they develope woodland series using the most common animals in Europe, they always replicate red deers, red squirrels, wild boars, red foxes, wolves, badgers, hedgehogs, hares, rabbits and animals like these.
The European wild cat is almost never included. Shocked Why, if cats are popular and if this is a common species? Exactly because of it, they will look like ordinary cats to everyone. ... and what is the problem? If they look like ordinary cats, they have twice the chance of being sold, either as a wild animal or a pet.
Well, they have their own features according with the regions they can be found and I am convinced you will manage it competently. I hope one of the major brands see it, some of the species you're replicating are too obscure to match the profit desire of a big company but wild cats have commercial potential, I guess. Very Happy

I love cats! Looking forward to seeing your project.

We have plenty of wild stray cats where I live that keep the vermin to a minimum. I heard of this species. Isn't it a mix of domestic and native species that have flourished over the years? Something like our Coy-Wolf found widespread in the Americas which is cross between wolves, domestic dogs, and coyotes.

No, no, I don't think they are!

Current scientist say that genetic, morphological and archaeological evidences suggest that the domestic cat proceed from african wildcats which were domesticated probably 9,000–10,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent region of the Near East, coincident with the rise of agriculture and the need to protect harvests stored in granaries from rodents, bringing a new species (Felis Catus) although others say it is a new subspecies of the Wildcat (Felis Silvestris Catus)

However, there could be crossbreeding of wildcat and domestic cat (which is perfectly possible) in different places, but these are not considered a new species/subspecies but only a half-caste individual. In fact, these crossbreeding that occurs in particular in Europe, is considered a potential threat for the preservation of the purr wild species and subspecies.

I hope this helps.

I like to see a picture of wild cat. It's a little kind represented by the established brands, perhaps because it somewhat resembles a normal cat but have enough differences in their body and strong heads and fatter and shorter tail. Congratulations Mgarat !! Very Happy Applause
