When most people hear references to wild cats, their minds quickly conjure up images of ferocious lions and tigers. But these pint-sized cats are making a name for themselves all across Africa.
Known as sand cats, these cream-colored kittens are a litter all their own. Commonly found in the deserts of North Africa, sand cats are known for their thick, furry feet that help allow them to endure the harsh desert temperatures. Sand cats are also known for their ability to evade detection. Traveling in the dead of night, these creatures rarely leave any signs of life when moving across the desert. That is until now.
