Black-footed cat Conservation
Conservation of the smallest (spotted) cat of South Africa, second smallest of the world, is extremely essential. So we are glad to be part of this. Our cats (couple and kittens) will be part of the BFC stress measurement, the research done by/for University of Pretoria. This because there’s such a huge decline in captive black footed cats the last few years, and poor to no breeding results (in South Africa, but also in Europe). Also the wild species is under threat. For a year samples will be collected and taken to the lab for further investigation, and it will be compared to samples of the wild black footed cats. We can only learn more about this species, and have to do our best to save it and have the numbers increased again.
