Question by Glitterbug: has anyone heard of a tiny breed of cat that nests in trees?
My mother swears she saw a nature program about an artic country (first she said Iceland, then she said the north pole) where the animals are all small. There was a full grown deer a foot high, and these little cats that had kittens up trees. Does anyone know what she’s on about, or has she actually gone mad?
Answer by linlyons
nope, never heard of it.
but, deer a foot high sounds more like jungle.
and i think that there are more feline species in warm climates.
i doubt that they build nests.
and baby cats might not be the most coordinated animals.
i’d guess it’s just a misunderstanding.
leopards do live in trees.
and it would seem reasonable that momma leopard brings her kill back to a tree where her cubs are hiding.
so it may not be a misunderstanding at all, other than the location.
