These photographs of an African Wild Cat were taken at the Emdoneni Cat Rehabilitation Centre in Hluhluwe, KwaZulu Natal. Apart from the obvious difference in their ear coloration and the longer legs, the African Wild Cat is easily mistaken for a domestic cat. Interbreeding is possible as they are so closely related to domestic cats. Pure genetic African Wild Cats are quite rare and only found in remote areas as elsewhere interbreeding with domestic cats has taken place.
