These adorable animals that resemble house cats with over-sized ears hang out in the deserts of northern Africa and southwest and central Asia. They probably chose to make their homes in these inhospitable areas because they want to avoid being snuggled to death by smitten humans. The small wildcats with short legs might look cute, but they're hardy little critters that can survive in environments that can be extremely hot or extremely cold. They're also solitary creatures that can live for months without water. However, they do have to get a little liquid from the tiny animals that they hunt.
