The SPOTTY cat is the smallest species of cat in the world. Even adults look more like a kitten. They are so small, they can fit in the palm of our hand. They are loners. Although they are miniature, they are very bold and mischievous. They are curious from birth and thanks to that they bravely get to know the world around them. They are characterized by sharpened senses, while their vision is six times stronger than human (BBC).
They live exclusively in India and Sri Lanka, although in 2012 they were also found in Nepal. They are considered an almost endangered species. Their biggest threat is the loss of natural habitat and hunting. According to some reports, poachers trade their fur on the black market. In some areas, they are hunted for food, but also to keep as pets.
