Felines | Felidae

Felidae, or Felines, is a terrestrial family of furry four-legged mammalian obligate carnivores with a tendency to meow. Felidae have the most diverse fur patterns of all terrestrial carnivores, ranging from spots to stripes to solids. The family of Felidae includes domestic cats, as well as, big, wild cats such as lions. All members of the Felidae family have retractable claws and a knack for hunting and stalking their prey. While there are similarities between members of the Felidae family, there are still many differences; most live alone, but lions live in prides, and feral cats form colonies, they can live in deserts, the arctic, or jungles, and some are nocturnal while others are active during the day.

Where did felines originate?

Felines can be traced back to 37 million years ago and are native to almost every region except for Australia and Antarctica. Smaller cats specifically can be traced back to western Eurasia about 10 million years ago. The domestic cat originated in ancient Egypt and Near East and was domesticated about 10,000 years ago.

Which felines live in groups?

Lions are the only felines that truly live in groups called prides. In prides all the females are related and live with the pride for life. A pride typically consists of 5 or 6 female lions, their cubs, and 1 or 2 male lions that mate with the female lions. Cheetah males may gather in bachelor groups temporarily.

What is the biggest feline species?

The biggest feline species is the liger, the hybrid of the lion and tiger that was developed by breeding a male lion and a female tiger. The liger weights about 795 lbs (360 kg) and can reach a length of 11 to 12 feet (3.35 – 3.65 m) with a height of 6 feet (1.82 m). Other big feline species are the Siberian Tiger, Bengal Tiger, and Lion.

Japanese Bobtail Cat

The Japanese Bobtail, a purebred cat hailing from Japan, is slender cat with a fluffy, bobbed tail bouncing on its behind. Playful and intelligent, the Japanese Bobtail is mischievous and talented at getting into places it should not. Due to its high intelligence, the Japanese Bobtail is also capable of learning tricks that usually only dogs learn.

The Japanese Bobtail is estimated to have been around since the sixth century as a seafaring cat during the times of the silk road. Revered and immortalized through silk screen paintings and woodcut prints, many legends surround the Japanese Bobtail, especially the tri-colored ones, called Mi-Ke, that were considered lucky.

Japanese Bobtail Cats have an overall height of 8”-9” (20-23 cm), body length of 13”-15” (33-38 cm), and weight between 6-12 lb (2.7-5.4 kg). Japanese Bobtail Cats have a typical lifespan between 9-16 years.

The Turkish Van is a rare and ancient breed of cat that developed in central and southwest Asia and brought to England.
