The Wild Cat (Felis silvestris) is Britain's only wild member of the cat family; bearing a close resemblance to the domestic tabby, but is more striped and has a bushier, blunt-ended tail marked with thick black rings.

Now confined to the Scottish highlands, wild cats disappeared from southern England in the 16th century; the last one recorded in northern England was shot in 1849. One of several at the British Wildlife Centre, this one is female.
