Take one glance at the Pallas’s cat and it will leap from the grasslands of Central Asia and right into your heart.

Soon enough, you’ll feel ticklish all over like your entire body was cuddling in its fluffy fur, but don’t be alarmed–it’s only happiness. It’s completely natural to feel this way.

The Pallas´s Cat, also called Manul, is a small wildcat living in the grasslands and steppe of central asia.

It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776.

Pallas’s cats are best adapted to cold arid environments and occupy steppes, alpine deserts and rocky country at fairly high elevations. They make their dens in caves, crevices, or burrows dug by other animals. They were originally believed to be primarily nocturnal, but are now being considered crepuscular.

How rare is this cat ? The International Species Information Service lists 117 worldwide, with 48 being in the U.S.
