Prionailurus rubiginosus is one of the smallest and cutest members of the wild cat family from Asia. Rusty-spotted cats got their name because of the rusty-brown blotches and spots marking their flanks. There is only one thing that could try to compete with them for cuteness, and it’s a black-footed cat (but we will talk about them next time).
Rusty kittens live in India and Sri Lanka. They eat small insects, lizards, and mice. They are good tree climbers. They do all the things domestic cats do, but they are not be caged within four walls.
As for their extremely small sizes, here are some precise numbers: their body length measures 14 to 19 inches with a 5.9 to 11.8-inch tail. The rusty-spotted cat weighs only 2.0 to 3.5 lb. These are numbers for an adult animal! What an adorable tiny little cat! Their faces are also unusual, as are their measurements. They most closely resemble the Bengal cat.
Below is the small compilation of rusty cats. They are so tiny, but so strong and independent, as they don’t need any protection from humans.
