The Scottish Wildcat

I'd never heard of this wildcat of Scotland until some random surfing through Wikipedia yesterday. This particular strain of wild feline predates today's domesticated cats. There are only 400 left in the wild, according to estimates.

The one pictured here looks quite a bit like my Maine Coon who passed away a year or so ago. But these wildcats are said to be untamable.
