In my view, a day without cats (at least e-cats, since I don’t own a felid) is like a day without sunshine. Here are two for the end of the week. First, from the Guardian, a very rare piece of footage of a snow leopard from the wild (you have to go to the link to see it, and it’s 37 seconds long).
Footage shows a snow leopard in the mountains of Qinghai Province, China. The images were captured on infrared cameras by wildlife photographer Matse Rangja, who has only managed to film the leopard once before in eight years. Snow leopards are rarely seen by humans and are listed on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s red list of threatened species
Here’s a screenshot:
Finally, a mother cat tries to rescue her tree-bound kitten despite the annoying importuning of the human servant. It doesn’t work, but the video ends happily after all.
