  1. I adore everything about this cat. His smudgy looking nose, that frown, and those EARS.
    Turn him around, Michael, so I can see that tail. LOL!

  2. -I am awestruck with this rare photo of the black serval*Wow*What incredibly long legs and neck. The ears look like a desert cat variety-but they live 2,745 feet above sea level?
    _Are they protected?
    _Endangered?
    Thanks Michael for posting this cat*

    • I feel the same way. A strange looking wild cat. And also a domestic cat in the USA and sometimes in the UK. They are no more protected than the ordinary serval. And most of the wild cat species live on farmland in Africa so are at risk of being killed by farmers. However, I wonder if the height helps. By the way I meant to say 2,745 meters above sea level not feet. This is 9,000 feet above sea level. This must protect them just like the snow leopard is protected in the mountains and the Bhutan tiger (the Bengal tiger in Bhutan) is protected having escaped to the foothills of the Himalayas.

      • -Yes-I will investigate this Black Serval in detail over the weekend. I am sure living 9000ft above sea level affords it some protection.I hope the farmers show more favor in the future towards the serval cat. Thank You for replying Michael-
