Pallas Cats

And now some cat therapy.

Have you heard of pallas cats (Otocolobus manul)? I hadn't until yesterday. They're native to central Asia, from China to Siberia to Nepal to the Caspian Sea, in elevations up to 15,000 feet. They don't seem to like the desert areas of Mongolia and China, though.

Here is a pallas cat in action:

I feel just a little bit better now.
