Top 20 Most Endangered Cats

20. White Lion

White Lions are a genetic rarity that only exist in the Kruger to Canyon Biosphere in South Africa. They were technically extinct for about two decades, but reestablished in their natural homeland in a world-first programme.
19. Golden Tabby Tiger

The Golden Tabby Tiger isn’t a species on its own, just a color variation of another breed of tiger. They are believe to be a result of captive breeding, but wild Golden Tigers have existed since around 1990.
18. Maltese Tiger

‘The Blue Tiger’, as the Maltese Tiger is also known, is so rare that it may already be extinct. They’ve been hunted for use in Chinese medicine for centuries, but we’re hoping some of these guys still exist!
17. Leopard Cat

The Leopard Cat’s colors can range anywhere from grey to a stunning red, and it’s their beauty that’s resulted in them being used for domestic breeding purposes.
16. Clouded Leopard

The Clouded Leopard is regarded as the evolutionary link between the big wildcats and the small ones. Commercial poaching and habitat destruction has reduced the total population size down to about 10,000.
15. Amur Leopard

The Amur Leopard is critically endangered, with only 30 remaining in the wild. They live in Russia and China, and are also known as the Far East Leopard.
14. Sand Cat

This cat’s wide head and furry toes protect it from the crazy heat of the desert. It’s threatened, and hunting these cats is banned in many countries.
13. Asian Golden Cat

The Asian Golden Cat is a little more common, but still endangered. It likes to hang out in the damp, evergreen tropical Asian forests.
12. African Golden Cat

These Golden Cats are so rare that it was only recently that they were captured on camera alive in the wild.
11. Caracal

The Caracal is one of the only wild cats that barks, and it’s endangered in Northern Africa and rare in Asia and India.
10. Serval

These cats roam around the African savannah, but they’re heavily hunted for their coats, which are sold to unwitting tourists who think they’re getting leopard or cheetah.
9. Margay

Margays live their life in the trees, and have the ability to run headfirst down tree trunks and hang from branches by one leg. 14,000 of these cuties are killed each year just for their fur, decimating the Margay population.
8. Palla’s Cat

These cuties hang out in dark places like caves and between rocks, and come out in the late afternoon to hunt. Habitat destruction and hunting means there are less and less of these guys every day.
7. Iberian Lynx

The Iberian Lynx is thought to be the most endangered mammal in the world. When the myxomatosis virus spread through the Spanish rabbit population, the Iberian Lynx no longer had a reliable food source, and now the species number only 100.
6. Andean Mountain Cat

This is one of around 20 small wildcat species that still exist in the world. Because of the lack of knowledge about these small species, the budget for their conservation is minuscule compared to that of their large cousins.
5. Flat-Headed Cat

This funny shaped kitty is another fisherman that hangs out by itself in the wild. Because of continued destruction of its habitat, there are now only around 2,500 Flat-Head Cats left.
4. Borneo Bay Cat

These mysterious wildcats live on the island of Borneo, but logging is threatening their habitat, and they’re now classified as endangered.
3. Fishing Cat

Fishing Cats do everything that domestic cats don’t! They fish, they swim, and they love to live along rivers and wetlands. Unfortunately, so do humans, and the rapid degradation of the fishing cats’ homes has made them endangered.
2. Snow Leopard

Snow Leopards have been hunted for their fur, to the point where only around 5,000 of the cuties still exist.
Asiatic Cheetah

The gorgeous cats used to roam around a massive area in Central Asia, the Middle East, and south into India. But because of habitat destruction and poaching there are now between only 70 and 110 of these guys left, and they’re confined to a small area in Iran.
