Big Cats

Scottish Wildcat

A couple of big cats and Scotland’s very own wee big cat at Edinburgh Zoo.
As recently as the 1950’s some people still thought Scottish Wildcats were man killers! Nobody is sure how many pure wildcats are still roaming the land but they’re pretty adaptable having outlived the British bears, wolves and lynx.

“They’ll fight to the death for their freedom;
they epitomise what it takes to be truly free I think.” Mike Tomkies

I was surprised how big this tabby super hunter is. Rather than puff out and show its side for size to scare off attackers these fearless felines pretend charge like their big cat cousins.

Might chuck up some dog shots soon but they’re obviously nowhere near as cool as cats!
