Big Cats, a new documentary series by BBC, based on several different cat species from around the world recently became viral. However, what stood out throughout the documentary was not the biggest feline. In fact, it was a rusty-spotted, the smallest cat in the world, which looks like a miniature kitten.

After seeing this ball of cuteness, anyone can be fooled by the natural charm following its ridiculously tiny size. Nevertheless, the cat is still a killer, and is fully competent to survive in the middle of the woods. But it’s simply impossible to witness his curiosity in action and not be fascinated. It might be a little difficult to believe, but this male, rusty-spotted feline is almost full-grown. Like most of the other cats, this one mostly hunt birds and rodents, and with this size, it is indeed vulnerable to predators as well. Such cats are hardly seen outside of captivity, following which their behaviour in the wild is mostly unknown.
