    My fluff-ball is called Rooikat, a South African colloquialism for the wild Caracal, a particularly fierce if not very big wild cat. Farmers also nicknamed it the Anti-Christ!. My Rooikat was named ironically since he is everything but. He loves sitting with you, on you, snuggles and hugs. He is already 13 yrs old and diebetic to boot but I cherish every moment whe still have together.

    If you’re interested check the real Caracal on Wikipedia it’s a fascinatiing animal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caracal
