Say hello to my Golden Cat!

I found this crazy cat while cleaning and arranging my office this past July. Now he is keeping me company on my top shelf, right above my desk. I had never even heard of a golden cat, so of course I was intrigued. I discovered that the African golden cat is a wild cat endemic to the rainforests of West and Central Africa. It is threatened due to deforestation and bushmeat hunting and listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. It is a close relative of both the caracal and the serval...and it is the mascot for RFIS!
We are both on an adventure in Cameroon! Stay tuned for more to come...
