Hai guys! Tato-Kitten here! Today I will be talking about Sand cats. A lot of people don't know about sand cats, but they are ADORABLE. And endangered. When reading about them, it is always sad to see that this beautiful species is harmed. But different organizations are trying to help the small population that is left of the Sand Cat. One thing that makes it hard for humans to find and track Sand Cats is that their special padded feet allow them to walk on the sand without sinking into it, leaving their tracks nearly invisible. This may come in handy for the Sand Cats to avoid predators, but it makes the Sand Cats hard to find, which makes it hard to save them. Another thing that makes the Sand Cats endangered is the things the humans do that harm them. The Sand Cats biggest problem is habitat loss. Since the Sand Cats prey on vegetation eating animals, farming prevents those animals from grazing easily, and when that effects the preys population, it effects the Sand Cats population. Domestic animals such as dogs and house cats also become a problem, as they become direct competition with the Sand Cats. But don't worry about letting your cat or dog outside. Sand Cats are solitary creatures, and probably scared of humans, don't you think? Plus, their are so few in the world, and those few that are still alive live far out in the wild, and the closest they come to society is farms! OK, Tato-Kitten signing out!
