Wildcat – The Original Meow

A week ago a lion killed a zebra near camp. When the rangers found the carcass the next day they positioned the camera trap on the carcass to see if the lions returned. The big cats, nervous of people around here, did not return but as luck would have it a smaller version walked by.
Has anyone misplaced a tabby in the thick African bush? Will it survive?
It will survive and probably a whole lot easier than the lions whose kill he passed by. This is the wildcat mentioned many posts back. The wildcat is the original cat from whom our domestic cats trace their line. So,, if you have a pussy cat nearby hold him or her to the screen to show them their rugged bush-wise cousin thriving in leopard/hyena/lion/wilddog country in northern kenya.
