I took these 3 photos on a recent trip to Ethiopia (trip report nearly finished). They look like African Wildcats but can anyone tell me why they are or why they are not! What features have they got that would indicate a domestic x or otherwise. The thing is they were taken during the day – the first cat (2 photos) at Lake Awassa in the grounds of a lakeside hotel and the other cat was photographed at Ankobar in the grounds of a lodge. Although a bit aloof neither cat acted particularly ‘wild’ so I’m rather sceptical about them. Mind you at night in a spotlight out in the bush how could you tell! Any comments on the pro’s & con’s of them being ‘pure blood’ African Wildcats would be appreciated.
Thank you, John Wright, UK.
