African Wild Cat

At first glance, this may look like a common tabby house cat. When I saw two of these cats on my first trip to Kenya, I thought the same thing. It was only after leaving that I discovered this cat's true identity. It is not a gray tabby at all. It is, in fact, an African wild cat.

It is no coincidence that our common house cat is so similar in appearance to the African wild cat. All domestics cats today are descendants of the African wild cat. It is the original "house cat." 

Although I missed the opportunity to photograph it on my first trip, I was fortunate to see another African wild cat on my second trip to Kenya. That is when I took this photograph.
