Thanks texasstar7! Appreciate the site info.
This link shows closeups of their paws. Very interesting. Thanks, WebPotato.
It's a beautiful cat. Thanks WP
Thanks WebPotato - good posts today - very interesting.
Wish the photo showed the feet. I would be interested in seeing a cat with webbed paws!
Thanks WebPotato for the interesting description and photo. Was completely unfamiliar with this water-loving cat...
Fishing cats live in wetlands in parts of South and Southeast Asia, especially near streams, rivers, and mangrove swamps. They have webbed paws, and are adept at catching fish and other small prey. Their IUCN status is Endangered, as their wetland habitats are increasingly being settled or converted into agricultural land.
