This is a very strange looking cat. I had automatically assumed it would be very similar to the African Cheetah but this one is obviously different.

Great read WS.

Just posted on the small cat conservation thread:

Read as far as the orphaned cheetah cubs. Oh my what a rescue. I am so glad Ethiopian customs were vigilant and found these little guys in there search of traders.

I will have to keep an eye on that story as they did not say what the programme is for them. I hope they are being cared for with the aim of releasing them later. Does anyone know the form for rehabilitation of wild cheetahs for release??
