ABSTRACT
Wildcat, any of the many kinds of small, undomesticated cats. Wildcats are native to nearly all parts of the world, but the name is usually applied to the European wildcat and to the North American bobcat. The European wildcat is yellowish-gray to dark gray with dark stripes on the head, body, and legs. The tail has several dark bands and is black at the tip. The European wildcat weighs 7 to 18 pounds (3 to 8 kg) and reaches a length of 44 inches (112 cm), including a 14-inch (36-cm) tail. It sleeps in hollow trees during the day and emerges at night to feed on birds and rodents. The European wildcat once ranged from Europe to central Asia. It has disappeared from densely settled areas but is still found in northern Scotland and in wooded, mountainous regions of the European continent.
