K is for Kodkod – the smallest cat in South America

The Kodkod, or Guigna is another tiny cute wild cat species. In Santiago, Chile, where they can be found there is a conservation effort using injured and orphaned Kodkods to start a captive breeding program. These cats will eventually be re-released into the wild as they are strong and sound enough.
There aren’t many left!

This 7″ x 11″ hand painted watercolor is for sale $150. It is on one of my last pieces of Handmade Indian Village paper.

So tell me, have you ever heard of these cats?

  1. You’ve perfectly captured the tentative, testing-the-air attitude of a cat coming out of hiding. Nicely done!

  2. Your Kodkod painting is to die for! NGO had a segment on one of it’s programs about the cat. I fell in love with the kitty (er, I’m a cat person, lol)
