Taken at Taronga Zoo, this is a fishing cat after it has been paddling through the water. These cats are obviously quite at home in the water, unlike my Ivan.
There are such cats as fishing cats? Meaning they are particulary bred to enter the water and catch fish? Amazing! I had no idea cats were used for this (although, I can imagine why they would be used to for this).
It’s a wild species, a jungle cat. I think – gee I’ve got to do more research on these things – I don’t know if it’s South American, African or Asian. Not bred for it, evolved for it.
