Pampas cat

I first learned about the Pampas cat when I was a little girl. The Pampas is a vast plain of south-central South America extending for about 1000 miles from the lower Paraná River to south-central Argentina southwest of Buenos Aires. It seemed to me that this cat was the equivalent of North America’s bobcat.

The pampas cat is a small cat, about the size of a domestic cat, with a broad face and large pointed ears. Its coat varies from a silvery grey, through all tones of yellow and yellowish-brown, to a light brown, with the flanks, legs, and tail banded with a darker variation of the body color.

The pampas cat may be found in the open grasslands and high pampas of southern South America east of the Andes, where it hunts by night and seeks birds, cavies and other small animals.

  1. Watercolor is near and dear to my heart. As a designer I always used watercolor for my renderings. I’m anxious to scroll down and take in your wonderful work. New follower, waving from my place in the mid 600’s on the A to Z.

  2. lovely watercolor – I assume it’s watercolor? Anyway, it’s gorgeous, both the painting AND the cat. I’m learning a lot!

  3. Who knew so many types of felines are roaming around the world and now they are being honored by a famous artist. Great work, Mimi. I just so enjoy them and wonder what it would be like to have them all living in my back yard. They seem so real!
