The dwarf Lancastrian wildcat
The dwarf Lancastrian wildcat
A glimpse of the rare 'Felis silvestris lancastria' seen here relaxing on a patch of scree. Usually only seen in the wild on warm sunny days, it generally hibernates under blankets between October and May. It is more commonly seen lurking in front of gas fires. Favourite prey items include 'Cod and Haddock', 'Trout and Tuna' and 'Chicken with Jelly'. This (very) distant relative of the Scottish wildcat has an amazing ability to merge with its surroundings by gradually coating them with its own hair which it constantly sheds all year round.
