Caracal in the Corner.


I've been really interested in Caracal's for a while now, and because they are so adorably cute, I thought I should illustrate one! If you have never heard of Caracal's, they are a type of wildcat found in Africa and some parts of Asia, and they are often known as the 'African Lynx' because of their close resemblance to the more well known big cat. I just think they are such a beautiful and interesting wildcat. In my illustration the cat is obviously inside a house, but I don't condone keeping these cats as domestic pets! It's only inside because I had the idea of a children's story, where the Caracal wanders into a house because it's an orphan and makes friends with a little girl until it is ready to be released into the wild again. I hope you like it!

    1. They're gorgeous aren't they! I saw a video of two caracal's and a baby lion playing in a sanctuary and it was so adorable. The little caracal's were grooming the baby lion! xxx
