What am I sappy cat blogging?

June 9, 2017

The sand cat (Felis margarita), also known as the sand dune cat, is the only cat living foremost in true deserts. This small cat is widely distributed in the deserts of North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. It was listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List since 2002 because the population was considered fragmented and small with a declining trend. It was downlisted to Least Concern in 2016.

The sand cat inhabits both sandy and stony desert, in areas far from water. Having thickly furred feet, it is well adapted to the extremes of a desert environment and tolerant of extremely hot and cold temperatures. – Wikipedia

  1. Such a cutie. 😻


  2. You’d like the cats in Failaka. As I was waiting at the port for my truck to come back I was visited by a pride of cats. They poured across the open ground to check me out and their leader looked just like that one.


    • Even though the stripes indicate he is a seaman apprentice, your cat was clearly the leader.
