Leopard cats are a widely distributed species of small cat hailing from south and east Asia. They can be found both on the ground and high in the trees but they also have little aversion to humans and will stalk villages to hunt rodents. The cat is not yet classified as endangered but with a declining population of over 50,000 individuals, it's important to monitor and protect them now.
