california spangled cat

Inspired by the poaching death of a leopard, the anthropologist Louis Leakey motivated Californian scriptwriter Paul Casey to breed a domestic cat resembling a small leopard, and that this would emphasize how important it is to preserve the leopard.

The California Spangled Cat was a breed of cat which became extinct in the 1990s . They were bred to resemble spotted wildcats, like the ocelot and leopard. They were originally bred in the 1980s and were only ever a rare breed, and were usually expensive, priced between $800 to $2,500. The popularity of two other spotted cats breeds- the Ocicat and the Bengal- overshadowed their development.
