Pallas Cat Blog Friday
For this Cat Blog Friday...
... meet the Pallas cat (Otocolobus manul), a.k.a. manul for short, a wildcat found in the grasslands and steppes of Central Asia and Eurasia.
13 Fascinating Facts About Pallas’s Cats
Although there might be a slight facial resemblance to the BTK killer (below), the Pallas cat is not a serial killer, well, unless you happen to be a pika, gerbil, vole, hare, ground squirrel, bird, or young marmot.
Try to have a happy Friday, everybody!

The Pallas cat looks to be too fat to move. Maybe that's insulation against the arctic nights? It does resemble the serial killer.
That's one fierce looking cat. I wouldn't mess with it though.
I linked you to Feline Friday.
Have a purrfect day and weekend. ♥
LL: The manul needs a bodacious amount of fur to keep warm. BTW it's not PC to fat shame 😉
An interesting and informative way to start Friday off. Never heard of these critters. I could use a few to cull our hoards of pocket gophers.
He looks like a cross between a cat and a seal! I do see the similarity in his face and that of the serial killer.
That is a cool cat. I enjoyed the short video in the 13 facts page as well as the info. As to btk, he looks like an older adam schiff to me. Maybe they can share a cell some day.
Sandee: I wouldn't mess with one either. They're not very sociable to each other, much less to humans.
Adrienne: Pocket gophers kill vegetation. They're not welcome guests.
Memories of Eric and Flynn: Lol. I'm not seeing a seal, but BTK popped into my head as soon as I saw the manul's grouchy face.
Kid: Pencil-neck Schiff looks like a human bobble head to me. His sharing a cell with anyone would be good.
That cat looks as serious about his dinner as our Mikey.
