Servals are effin' awesome!

[–]blackjack_oak 87 points88 points  (15 children)

Some other cute cat species:

The sand cat of the Sahara and Arabian desert.

The black-footed cat of the Kalahari desert.

Geoffrey's cat of the Pampas grasslands in Argentina.

[–]NatsuDragnee1 41 points42 points  (5 children)

Caracals are beautiful too!

For more cuteness you can't go wrong with the manul

[–]darque306 19 points20 points  (0 children)

"manul" the Jack Black of cats

[–]IceGraveyard 12 points13 points  (1 child)

[–]PonerBenis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He's just big boned. Give him a break.

[–]thesmellofwater 3 points4 points  (0 children)

manul seems like the grumpy old lady in some video game that only helps me in my quest because I annoyed her enough.

[–]fatkiddown 40 points41 points  (2 children)

why does Geoffrey get his own gd cat?

[–]psychedelicbirdsex 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Don't forget the kodkod cat

[–]Raven_skies 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Geoffrey here. We have our own giraffe as well. We also have a butler. Suck it up, buttercup.

[–]Iamnotburgerking 9 points10 points  (0 children)

All 3 of these are smaller than house cats BTW. Servals on the other hand are larger than house cats.

[–]Bikeboy76 4 points5 points  (1 child)

And Henry's Cat.

[–]crewcumber 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like in the UK cartoon show? I haven't seen that in ages!

[–]koscum 3 points4 points  (0 children)

THEY ARE SO ADORABLE!!! MY CAPS LOCK IS BORKED!

[–]noideawhatijustsaid -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Geoffrey's cat looks like he doesn't want to be in a picture

[–]XperiMental21 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Damn, thought it was an ocelot... I'll take my archer quote and leave then

[–]LivRite 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, those are far too smelly to ever be let indoors.

[–]SeymourGarbo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There are serval reasons to love them!

[–]SgWaterQn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I met a bobcat once, and the owner said if I don't bump my head into his, it would kill me.

[–]kickasstimus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Until they pee on everything and eat your other pets.

[–]Lazerlord10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They also shouldn't be kept as pets.

[–]DarthReeder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isnt this a Savannah?

[–]D00zer 103 points104 points  (12 children)

How my brain works: "Unusual pet rubbing its head on owner? Perfectly normal. But why does she have a poster for Sprite on her bedroom wall?"

[–]TheRealMorph 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Maybe we're being advertised to

[–]fattypigfatty 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Cue the /r/hailcorprate reference.

[–]Everyoneisanasshat 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I didn't even notice the poster, but somehow I needed a sprite right after I initially watched this... You're a genius.

[–]juksayer 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Trying to get that sponsorship.

[–]tomasgiles1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does anybody know a sprite rep?

[–]Azitik 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's the cat's room and he really enjoys being refreshed and having his thirst quenched.

[–]SgWaterQn 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I met a bobcat once, and the owner said if I don't bump my head into his, it would kill me.

[–]TanagerOffTrack 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe she stole it in her hooligan days.

[–]CmdrKitten 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Given that it's at waist-height, I would wager it's less for art purposes and more likely the name of whatever is in the cage directly below it.

[–]JessicaBecause 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just because.

[–]Lonsdale1086 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Viral advertising?

[–]No_buddy_cares 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Babou?!

[–]mrmacr 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yes you! You fox eared asshole!

[–]Macabilly 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He remembers me!

[–]HolierMonkey586 33 points34 points  (14 children)

Does anyone know why animals press there head against you in a show of affection?

[–]angeredmage 67 points68 points  (5 children)

I know for cat species at least, they have glands on parts of their body for putting their scent on you for identification and whatnot

[–]ChickenLover841 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I feel they also do it out of love but no evidence

[–]RageOverflows 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They're marking their territory. Whether it's love or not, you are theirs now.

[–]Damn_Dog_Inappropes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually tell my cats when they do the, "Yes, I am yours, now."

[–]Ulaven 24 points25 points  (4 children)

Most all cats, including domestic cats have scent glands in their cheeks for marking purposes.

[–]Grabbsy2 21 points22 points  (2 children)

I believe its to make you immediately recognizable as "safe". So your house will have locations that they've rubbed their face on, and the scent will make them feel safe there.

I believe there is a spray you can buy from the vet, for if your cat is having trouble adjusting to a new home.

[–]Ulaven 8 points9 points  (1 child)

There is, it's called Feliway, but there are conflicting reports as to it's efficacy.

[–]Grabbsy2 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My vet offered it to me, but I never followed through. Can confirm I remember it being called Feliway.

Edit: This is an odd comment to downvote. The vet thought maybe my cat got a UTI from being too scared to go to the room with the litterbox, i knew that wasnt the case.

[–]HolierMonkey586 1 point2 points  (0 children)

TIL my dog is part cat.

[–]Iamnotburgerking 3 points4 points  (0 children)

For cats, they are scent-marking you.

[–]RiverRunnerVDB 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because they are generally not “huggers”.

[–]chiapeterson -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It’s kind of a farewell. Since they are about to bite your throat and rip out your jugular.

[–]DeportTrimmigrants 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Fun fact about servals:

Highest jumping cat in the world.

They pounce on their pray with this jump and have a staggering 98% kill rate on the first jump.

[–]SG4LPilgrim 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This sounds like a Pokedex entry.

[–]emp_mastershake 13 points14 points  (0 children)

She looks like she owns more than one of those.

[–]Shaarp1 42 points43 points  (3 children)

HE REMEMBERS YOU

[–]Ceebles 49 points50 points  (1 child)

BABOU!!!!!

[–]Kickmekicku 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Get him a cat toy or something, it's like meowschwitz in there.

[–]proofsafe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it's a she.

[–]mattomatic15 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My cat head butts like no other, especially my bearded chin, but sometimes he'll bite my neck lightly as if to give me a warning. If this cat did that I'd just shit my pants

[–]Iamakingwhoplays 13 points14 points  (1 child)

BABOUUUUU

[–]FELOPZDDEFPOTEC 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"You fox-eared asshole!"

[–]Freebandz042 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Why does Reddit like to keep wild animals as pets?

[–]Lazerlord10 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Because people like to fantasize having pets like these, and all they know about them is what they see in these 2-second snippits where they actually behave like a normal pet.

[–]yeahjmoney 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like an F1 male Savannah cat, they are a domestic breed and the males can weigh up to 40lbs. To be fair though, it is 75% serval.

[–]RamBone22 7 points8 points  (1 child)

They must love Sprite

[–]Shaka89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Came here to find this. That's all I could think while watching this

[–]BEAR_ON_FIRE 3 points4 points  (2 children)

What type of cat is it?

[–]NatsuDragnee1 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The Serval

[–]jbar3987 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Could also be a Savannah, which is pretty much just a serval bred with a domestic.

[–]Ekebolon 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I bet that apartment smells like the Ninth Ring of Hell.

[–]JessicaBecause 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Can you imagine the size of the litter box?

[–]WiseWordsFromBrett 12 points13 points  (0 children)

You mean the kitchen?

[–]ChickenLover841 2 points3 points  (0 children)

it's a pretty hard hit really

[–]Iamnotburgerking 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Servals may be misshapen compared to most cats, but that scent-marking is still cat behaviour.

[–]Lazerlord10 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you're legitimately thinking about getting a serval or other 'exotic' cat, please do your research and see why they aren't pets.

[–]DevilsThird 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good kitty

[–]Mercuryboarder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

FaceTime.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My dog headbutts me like this when I come home and as we are settling down to sleep each night.

[–]BruiserCruiser13 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I want one of these sooooo bad

[–]Lazerlord10 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Trust me, you don't. They are wild animals and seeing them in 2 second long GIFs doesn't show how much of a chore it is to care for them and deal with their wild instincts they still have (ex: pissing on everything).

[–]BruiserCruiser13 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah would never be able to afford one anyway haha. To buy one or the maintenance I'm sure they require. Still beautiful animals and I can dream right?

[–]Lazerlord10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it can be fun to think about, but the animal is very likely not going to be as well off as it would be if it was in the wild. Oftentimes the breeders you'd buy from are in it for the money first and for the welfare of the animal second. Even if I could take care of it, I wouldn't want to support illegal breeding.

[–]runandkickgirl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like how stretches upward like a giraffe.

[–]MandelPADS 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That lady has a HUGE pussy.

[–]FireKist -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for not disappointing me - I was so waiting for this 😂

[–]ringolio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice Sprite poster lady

[–]thisiserdinc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For you

[–]Ca1iforniaCat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A cat the size of a dog! What an awesome kitty.

[–]Leftwardowl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like a cheetah and antelope mixed with just a little giraffe.

[–]bringbackswg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can I has one pls?

[–]D0wnb0at 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Holy shit! You guys! Look at his little spots! Look at his tufted ears!

[–]bigshrimpinn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a weird looking greyhound

[–]MizchiefKilz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Urban Dictionary says it's a gay man who feels superior to others based on their race, gender, or sexual orientation.

[–]PineappleTreePro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well yeah, thousands of years of use don’t discourage us. I think the difference is that a chemical process occurs in bees, also it doesn’t come out of their asshole.

[–]HavokGDI 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pam needs a hair cut.

GENERAL REPOSTII

[–]jball270 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

ugh, such a beautiful cat.

[–]Always_-_Change -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Joseph begat Moses, Moses begat Pedro, Pedro begat Juan, Juan begat Steve, Steve begat Mary...

[–]PineappleTreePro -2 points-1 points  (7 children)

Cat you make coffee with its shit?

[–]Iamnotburgerking 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No.

[–]PineappleTreePro 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Are you guessing or have you tried?

[–]TripleChubz 0 points1 point  (4 children)

That was the Civet. Fun fact- if what I've read is true, the digestion didn't cause the flavor. The only reason that people think Civet coffee tasted better was because civets would only eat the beans that were at the right stage (ie, ripe, not rotten or fermenting).

[–]PineappleTreePro 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Doesn’t that suck though? At least with truffle pigs they can get to the truffles before the pig eats them.

[–]5_on_the_floor 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Not that I would ever try civet coffee, but for some reason honey seems okay.

[–]PineappleTreePro 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Refering to how bees make honey?
