The cat is a beautiful cat with a very special personality and attitude. Known most commonly as simply the cat with one eye, this exotic feline is truly a sight to behold. This article will discuss the pallas cat and the current popularity of this beautiful cat.
The word “pallas” itself means “winged cat,” and pallas cats are indeed winged felines. Pallas cats (or sometimes simulated by pallas cats in popular culture) have long been thought of as being spirits in some Native American tribes. According to legend, pallas cats watch over the tombs of their dead ancestors. Some tribes believe that pallas cats have immortalized their ancestors in the form of a large tree. In areas where hunting and set hunting are common, these feline predators can often be found watching over tombs or guarding against intruders.
In the United States, the cat has been granted protected status by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, making it an endangered species. A recent survey of pallas cat populations in various parts of the country indicates that they are widespread in southern states near the Mexican border, including Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Although nearly all cat populations have been near threatened or endangered in some way, surprisingly few manatees (manatees are endangered species in the southern United States) have been documented to be owned by humans.
Breeds of Mountain
The cat is thought to descend from a number of different breeds of mountain cat that were driven to the brink of extinction in the Near East some five hundred years ago. One of these was the slender cat of the steppe. Other evidence suggests that the cat was probably a feral mountain cat that was let loose in the mountains of what is now Turkey, in present day northern Iraq. The steppe cat probably suffered a serious imbalance of diet with the loss of its natural prey animal as people started to farm cattle on the plains of the Middle East.
Attractive Felines of the Amish Country
The pallas is thought to be genetically related to the slender cat of the steppe. It shares a number of its characteristics with the graceful and pom-pom attractive felines of the Amish Country, especially its thick, heavy fur, its long legs and its agile muscular physique. The pallas also shares a number of its positive traits with the snowshoe hare; both cats are small and nocturnal hunters who live in rocky and rugged areas. But despite similarities in the fur of these felines, they are distinctly different in their behavior and lifestyle.
The American Museum of Natural History in New York City has a range of pallas cat pictures on its website that it calls “Pallas Cat Man.” The pictures show the cat in its natural habitat – in the vicinity of Mongolia and China. It was not a popular pet among early hunters because it is so unlike the mountain cats of Mongolia and China. Perhaps the difference lies in the fact that the walls of the steppes is an arboreal predator with a large body size and large teeth, considerably larger than those of its domestic cousins.
A separate group of pallases called the Transbaikal Cats has a recognized existence in the Altai Mountains. They inhabit the rocky areas of this high desert in central Asia and face many threats from vehicles, wild animals and humans. Little is known about these cats, and it is believed they have a genetic relationship with the domestic cat. In fact, it is estimated that only fifteen to twenty percent of the Transbaikal’s population is captive bred, and it is the largest prey animal of migratory birds.
In fact, the recent tagging of a pregnant female Transbaikal reveals that it was not the first time the cats had bred. The discovery of its two-year old kittens in the north of Borneo is thought to be the first evidence of a captive breeding programmer in the wild. The birth of these cute kittens was confirmed by zookeepers in the wild and further research shows that the mothers take care of their young for about two years before they are weaned off feed. It is possible they were brought to Borneo as part of a wildcat gene pool. Alternatively, it is possible the kittens were sired by feral cats already on the islands.
