My cat died and I just found out from someone who didn’t know I hadn’t been told.
THERES ONLY 116 SAND CATS LEFT ON EARTH
less humans more sand cats
SAVE THE SAND CATS
Sand Cats are tied with Black-Footed Cats as the smallest wild cat on earth.
The big problem is habitat destruction (grazing, development, etc) and loss of prey. Part of the problem is that we (the opposable thumbs crowd) keep having wars in their habitat. IN ADDITION to the general hazards of living in a war zone, soldiers on all sides were using the cats (along with foxes and other small animals) for target practice.
I did not know there was so few as that.
