New Nepalese Cat Discovered Deep in Himalayas! MEOW!
By: Betty Chu
A beautiful new little cat species — new to Nepal, that is — was discovered deep in the Himalayan mountain range.
Caught on night-vision camera, this lovely little night prowler was discovered by Bikram Shrestha of The Snow Leopard Conservancy. The new cat, which until now had never been spotted in Nepal, was identifed as a Pallas' Cat — there isn't even a Nepalese name for the species. These adorable cats are about the size of a typical house cat and found in Central Asia at higher elevations.
Don't know about you guys, but I am *so* in LOVE <3 ... MEOW.
